The Roaring Fork Observation Network Stations
In addition to links to data collected by other entities, the iRON hosts data collections from AGCI's own soil moisture network. Live data is data gathered from AGCI's soil and climate monitoring stations. These stations measure soil temperature (8in depth), soil moisture (2, 8, 20 inch depths), air temperature, relative humidity, and rain. Rain is measured by tipping bucket rain gauge, and therefore measurements taken during freezing months when snow is present are unreliable. Data is collected every 20 minutes and transmitted to the database every hour. The live graphs see on the Station pages are provided through Hobolink and have not been filtered for erroneous readings. This data can be viewed but is not available for download, and only the previous month's data is available for viewing. To find downloadable, archived data visit the Data Dashboard.
For data collected by agencies other than AGCI or a willing partner, download data directly from its source using the links below in the Further Resources.
AGCI has become an intellectual proving ground, a ferment for new ideas and concepts, and a place where the different disciplines actually talk, and progress. Hal Harvey
