Meteorology

Meteorology and atmospheric data is primarily used to aid in the analysis of environmental monitoring.

Data obtained by the two on-site weather stations offer a representation of climatic conditions across numerous monitoring sites, i.e. stream flow, groundwater recharge, air quality, noise and vibration monitoring. Weather stations monitor temperature, rainfall, solar radiation, relative humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed and wind direction.

In addition, rainfall is measured at 11 pluviographs (rain gauges) in the vicinity of Cadia Valley Operations (CVO).
