The following meteorological data are from the C1 station on Niwot Ridge. The peak wind gust information is recorded instantaneously, with a sampling interval of 5 seconds. The other measurements are one hour averages comprised of 720 samples collected at 5 second intervals. All the parameters are updated at the top of every hour. This page is also available displayed in U.S. customary units.

C1 Summary

C-1 is located in a Subalpine Forest, 9.7 km east of the Continental Divide. Topographic setting: ridge-top. Climate data completeness good from 1953 to present. Climate parameters measured include temperature, relative humidity, solar radiation, barometric pressure, wind speed and direction, precipitation, soil moisture and temperature, snow depth. At this site are also atmospheric and ecological research operations including the NCRS Snotel site, NOAA CMDL Carbon (CO2) and Halocarbon (anthroponenic greenhouse gases and staospheric ozone depletors, and surface ozone) measurements, National Weather Service precipitation gage, NOAA Climate Research Network (CRN) weather station, Ameriflux tower (forest ecology and atmospheric flux).
