The Burns station is a reference station. This page provides an overview of the solar and meteorological monitoring equipment at the Burns station. In April 1982, the Burns station moved from downtown Burns (lat. 43.58, long. 119.05, alt. 1295 m) to its present location. Links in the table below will take you to more in-depth information about the accuracy of data collected and the instruments in use. In 2021, an Eppley pyrgeometer replaced the Eppley PSP at the station.
