Data Availability Name Description Objective Dates
By requestAir Temperature and Relative Humidity from Colchester Reef 32-Meter SensorsAir temperature and relative humidity data from the 32 meter level on the Colchester Reef meteorological station. Readings from this instrument became unreliable after approximately nine years, and were split off from the main dataset. We must caution that maintenance for this sensor likely discontinued in 2009, when maintenance of the MET1 wind sensors stopped. The end date of this dataset was determined through a comparison with the 38m CR air temp data. Towards the end of September and beginning of October of 2015, the data between the 32m air temp and 38m air temp readings drastically differed.Monitor air temperature and relative humidity at Colchester Reef from various heights.2006-07-19 to 2015-10-01
DownloadableQuality-Controlled Colchester Reef Meteorological DataMeasurements of air temperature, barometric pressure, windspeed, precipitation and humidity at the Colchester Reef Station. Readings are taken at sensor arrays at 32 meters and 38 meters above mean sea level. Basic quality control measures have been applied to the data. To continuously monitor meteorological variables representative of Lake Champlain for use by researchers, recreationalists, commercial boaters, Champlain Water District and the National Weather Service.1996-07-29 (ongoing)

By requestWind Data from Colchester Reef 38-Meter SensorsWind data from the 38-meter level Met1 sensors on the Colchester Reef meteorological station. Readings from this instrument became unreliable after September of 2008. This was verified by reviewing maintenance notes and by comparing the reading between the met1 sensor and an NRG anemometer that was set up on the station at the same height. Late 2008 was when the readings between the two sensors began to differ.Monitor wind conditions on Colchester Reef1996-07-29 to 2008-09-14
