- Meteorological Field Campaign about temperature inversions in Alpine basins
Following instruments are used at the moment in
Grünloch (Winter 2003/04):
HOBO Pro Temperature Data Logger
DATE OF INSTALLATION: 7 December 2003
TIME INTERVAL of records: 5 min
LAST DOWNLOAD TRIP: 4 February 2004
NEXT DOWNLOAD DATE: April/May 2004
MEASURED PARAMETERS: Temperature
ABOUT THE DATA LOGGER: These Data Loggers save the data on a small main board. In order to get the data, you have to download each logger with your laptop or a shuttle, which is specially made for all loggers of the HOBO family (http://www.onsetcomp.com/). The Hobos are supplied with energy by a battery inside the data logger. Under normal conditions, the battery last for three years. These Loggers are ideal for measurements in remote areas, where you have no power supply. The disk space is large enough, that you don't have to download the data set each week.
INSTRUMENTATION DURNING THE
This map shows every location of our instruments.
The black dots represent our
temperature data loggers (HOBOS). We installed three lines,
starting at the centre of the sink hole.
3 data logger were installed at the outflow valley (Lechnergraben, LG) and another 8 data logger were located at other sinkholes near Gruenloch. The last data logger was installed at the Dürrensteinalm-Basin near the mountain hut Ybbstalerhuette.
We had also 3 weather stations (Vaisala), one at the floor of the sinkhole, one at the lowest saddle and one at the mountain top of Hühnerkogel. These stations made measurements of temperature, humidity, wind speed and wind direction.
During our main field campaign in early June we were running two tethered balloons, to get more data from the atmosphere inside the cold air pool.
