The Castle Creek Station was installed in 2019 and began collecting data in the summer of 2020. Located at an elevation of around 11,500 feet, the station is located in a clearing on a sub-alpine slope. This station is powered by solar panel and measures snow depth, wind speed and direction, radiative balance, air temperature, relative humidity, soil temperature at an 8in depth, and soil moisture at 2, 8, and 20 inch depths.
