Configuration Options

The Spidar Met Sensor measures temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, and precipitation. Statistical averages of each parameter are included in Spidar measurement files.

A met sensor is included standard with each Spidar Vertical Profiler and is securely mounted on one of the Lidar’s legs. The Spidar Met Sensor is a mandatory component of the broader system.

The precipitation sensor provides a indication of the presence and intensity of precipitation for each statistical period within a Spidar measurement file, scaled from 0 (none present) to 1 (intense precipitation).
