Station Details

  • Station Description

    The Rush Ranch weather station is operated by the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) as part of the NERR System-Wide Monitoring Program. It is located at Rush Ranch Open Space Preserve in Solano County. It has been operational since 2006. Data are available in near-real time at 15 minute collection intervals, with observations of air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed and direction, photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), and precipitation.

  • Location

    38.2004 N, -122.0265 W

  • Sensor Information

    Information on sensors is available in the associated metadata (see Data Access).

  • Available Parameters

    Air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed and direction, photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), and precipitation.

    NOTE: The average or total (depending on the parameter) data value reported are for the interval prior to the time stamp.

    • ATemp: average air temperature measured in degrees Celsius (C)
    • RH: average relative humidity measured in percent saturation (%)
    • BP: average barometric pressure measured in millibars (mb)
    • WSpd: average wind speed measured in meters per second (m/s)
    • MaxWSpd: max wind speed measured in meters per second (m/s)
    • MaxWSpdT: time of max wind speed measurement (hh:mm)
    • Wdir: average direction from which the wind originates measured in degrees true North as of April 1 2008. Prior to April 1 2008 wind direction was measured with no correction for magnetic declination. See Reserve metadata for exact date of shift to true North.
    • SDWDir: wind direction standard deviation (sd)
    • TotPAR: photosynthetically active radiation measured in millimoles per square meter (total flux integrated (totalized - over each 15-minute logging interval)
    • TotPrcp: total precipitation measured in millimeters (mm)
