PEI Climate Station Networks2024-03-21T17:14:03-03:00

The Wind Energy Institute of Canada’s Climate Meteorological Station was developed in partnership with UPEI Climate Lab and has the following co-located instrumentation installed to allow for measurement inter-comparisons:

  • Hobo Onset RX3000 logger and sensors sponsored by UPEI
  • Davis Instruments Vantage Vue sponsored by UPEI
  • Davis Instruments Vantage Pro2 sponsored by Parks Canada
  • CoCoRaHS manual rain gauge sponsored by Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI

Data from these instruments for the WEICan site and for similar weather stations located across PEI are available through the following sources:

Source WEICan Station ID Description
PEI Climate and Weather App North Cape Online tool developed and maintained by Dr. Xander Wang at UPEI and is partially funded by the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI and UPEI Climate Research Lab
Weatherlink Norway VV Norway VP Davis Instruments weather application used to view, analyze, and share weather data from Davis Vantage weather stations. The free Basic Plan allows access to the weatherlink network map and bulletin data tiles.
CoCoRaHS CAN-PE-77 Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network is a non-profit network of individuals working together to provide measurements of rain, hail and snow across Canada, the US and the Bahamas.
