SRML stations: Seattle_UW, WA
(Latitude: 47.654; Longitude: -122.309; Altitude: 70 m)

This page provides an overview of the solar and meteorological monitoring equipment at the Seattle station located at the University of Washington. The Seattle_UW station was established in October of 2015. An new automatic tracker enabling diffuse measurements and a pyrgeometer were added in July, 2020. In 2021, the Eppley PSPs were replaced by Hukseflux SR20 pyranometers and the Eppley PIR was moved to Burns. Links in the table below will provide more in-depth information about the accuracy of data collected and the instruments in use.
