200 Meter Meteorological Tower

A 200 meter data acquisition tower is available to measure and record atmospheric conditions at 10 levels, with a variety of instruments to measure different levels of weather including: wind speed, direction, temperature, humidity and pressure.

The ability to measure wind speeds and other atmospheric conditions at multiple levels allows TTU researchers to gain fundamental knowledge about low-level jets and other atmospheric events.
