Occasional Weather Equipment Feature – The Sunshine Recorder

Occasional Weather Equipment Feature – The Campbell-Stokes Sunshine Recorder.

This is the Campbell-Stokes Sunshine Recorder. It’s essentially a big glass ball that focuses the sun’s rays onto a curved calibrated card and burns a trace when the sun is out.

The length of the burn mark is then measured against the scale on the card, revealing the length of bright sunshine hours per day.

The card is changed every day in manned observing stations. The CSSR has been replaced by electronic sensors on modern weather stations and allows them to be unmanned.

Why You Need a Home Weather Station
Use a home weather station to monitor your environment, both inside and outside your home, or install one in your greenhouse to help you keep an eye on the conditions in the garden. Home weather stations can bring you all sorts of data on the prevailing conditions: temperature, humidity, time, moon phase, wind speed, rainfall as well as air purity and co2 details.
