Automatic weather stations (AWSs) were deployed at 8 stations in the Sahara in 2011 (until 2013 for some stations) as part of the Fennec field campaign.
Designed and built at the University of Leeds they include:
Intersema MS55634 pressure sensors, Mierij Meteo MW36 cup anemometers, Vaisala WMT52 sonic anemometers, Epluse EE08 temperature and relative humidity sensors, Omega 44007 thermistors, Hukseflux HFP01SC ground flux sensor and Kipp & Zonen CNR4 radiometers.
For more information on the construction of the AWSs please see Hobby et al., (2013).
