SRML stations: UO Solar Awning, Eugene, OR
(Latitude: 44.05; Longitude: 123.07; Altitude: 150 m)

This page provides an overview of the monitoring equipment at the UO Solar Awning installation in Eugene. Links in the table below will take you to more in-depth information about the accuracy of the data collected and the instruments in use.
The UO SRML maintains a special Website that is primarily intended for users of the Solar Awning Laboratory kiosk. However, that Website can also be accessed by remote users. In addition to general information about the Solar Awning project and its real-time performance, there is a comprehensive data charting facility that can display historical data of many types. Because the Website has been optimized for hands-on users of the kiosk, the display may not be ideal for remote users. We find that Firefox or Opera offer the best compatibility. Microsoft's Internet Explorer is generally usable but may require some tweaking of zoom settings.
