Bard Campus Station
The Bard campus station (on the roof of Stevenson Library) monitors air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, dew point, wind speed, gust speed, wind direction, solar radiation, photosynthetic active radiation, and precipitation, using a HOBO Onset weather station. The station is also equipped with sensors from PurpleAir and QuantAQ which measure particulate matter. See the live data streams below.
The Community Sciences lab continuously monitors particulate matter concentrations and weather conditions to support ongoing air quality research and community science projects. Monitoring stations located on Bard’s campus and across the Hudson River in the city of Kingston, log and transmit data in real-time to publicly available web-based dashboards.
