An automatic meteo station MetLog consists of a system block for data recording and gauges for measurements. The meteo station was made by Instromet. The measurements have been carried out every 6 minutes since August 2004. MetLog 98 is used as software. The system block is connected with a computer via RS232. Uninterruptible power supply battery allows the system block to record data in case of short term blackout. Large memory volume allows the system block to record meteo data during 6 weeks. A list of meteo parameters and their features are shown in the following table.
