Hey everyone!

I have exciting news! Last week an engineering company contacted me about gathering Solar Radiation data with my website.

They have offered to buy the sensor for the station. So I’ve gladly taken them up on the offer and I’ve also purchased a UV sensor to go along with it so we can know how fast we’re all gonna fry this summer!

Solar Radiation sensors (pyrometers) are useful for calculating the power emitted by the sun. (that makes it to the ground). The company will be using the data to calculate water temperatures in the Somass River as through funding provided by the BC Living Rivers Trust Fund with the BC Ministry of Environment.

So stay tuned! The sensors should be here in a couple weeks.

Update: Man it is *crazy* windy out there… been windy all afternoon. Must have been some Themal today. Hope the Wind Surfers got out on the Inlet to enjoy it!

  1. Was down to Kildonan today for work, travelled on the Lady Rose.. not overly windy down there, but it did rain between Nahmint Bay and Kildonan.
