The Wireless Weather Sensor with GPS is an all-in-one instrument for monitoring environmental conditions. A built-in anemometer as well as sensing elements for temperature, humidity, pressure, light, and GPS the sensor provides up to 17 different measurements that can be used individually or simultaneously. Use the sensor in logging mode with the optional Weather Vane Accessory for long-term monitoring, or use it as a hand-held instrument to study microclimates and record ambient conditions relevant to many biological and environmental phenomena. Conduct GIS/mapping experiments using the onboard GPS sensor in conjunction with any of the other available measurements. The new map display in PASCO software provides a way for students to analyze spatial data. Best of all, even with the versatility and functionality available, the Wireless Weather Sensor with GPS is simple and intuitive for students to use. Note: The anemometer can only be used in winds at or below the max speed rating. Using it in hurricane-level winds or with a leaf blower can damage the unit.

- Wireless Weather Sensor with GPS – PS-3209 aligns to GLOBE protocols. The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program is an international science and education program that provides students and the public worldwide with the opportunity to participate in data collection and the scientific process and contribute meaningfully to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment. Announced by the U.S. Government on Earth Day in 1994, GLOBE launched its worldwide implementation in 1995.
The Weather Vane Accessory (PS-3553) is an accessory for the Wireless Weather Sensor with GPS (PS-3209). Turn the Wireless Weather Sensor w/ GPS into a temporary weather station for long-term logging experiments with this accessory. Equip your Wireless Weather Sensor with GPS for extended environmental monitoring with the Weather Vane Accessory. Once deployed the sensor will rotate freely to capture wind speed and direction, whether you are monitoring data in real-time or using the sensor in logging mode to capture hours (or days!) of data for later analysis.
