Abstract

Longterm Meteorological observations (temperature, relative humidity, pressure, wind speed and direction, solar irradiance) at the Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory (WAO). WAO, situated on the north Norfolk coast, is part of the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA) and is a world class facility for fundemental research, background atmospheric monitoring and teaching purposes. WAO operates a range of instruments in its measurement programme - the data from which is archived at the BADC.
