KML Weather Station


Planning and performing field-based work within the Florida Keys requires an insightful eye when it comes to weather.

In order to help our collaborators, visiting scientists and student groups get a better understanding of what current conditions look like we installed a weather station directly on property. This station allows us to pull real-time data on local weather forecasts, temperature, wind direction, wind speed, and even barometric pressure.

KML staff can also use this station to double-check conditions, adjust plans as needed, and most importantly ensure the safety of all scheduled activities.
