PASPORT Personal Weather Monitor

The PASPORT Personal Weather Monitor allows students to gain new insight into the science of weather. The monitor lets students take six weather-related measurements simultaneously, including temperature, barometric pressure, relative humidity, absolute humidity, dew point and relative altitude. Once the data is collected, students can view it graphically using DataStudio software to help them identify trends and correlations of weather changes. The Personal Weather Monitor is also small enough to be used in the field, so students can use it for anytime, anywhere data collection. PASCO scientific, (916) 786-3800,
