Hur bygger man en väderstation?

 Meteorologisk station - är ett separat utrymme i en så kallad meteorologisk trädgård som vanligtvis ligger i ett särskilt stadsområde eller i ett område som ligger utanför städerna. Meteorologiska stationer byggs i utbildningssyfte i skolor och universitetsstäder och i centrum av tätorter. Utanför fastlandet finns meteorologiska stationer även till havs och i områden med extrema och fientliga klimat. Meteorologiska stationer är utrustade med instrument för att mäta väderfenomen och för att förutsäga det kommande vädret. Vad består väderstationen av? Väderstationen är placerad på ett 15 x 15 meter stort gräsområde. I detta utrymme ingår de installerade meteorologiska instrumenten. Ett karakteristiskt inslag i den meteorologiska trädgården är de så kallade meteorologiska burarna som innehåller en uppsättning termometrar, en vindmätare, en regnmätare, marktetermometrar och en heliograf. Byggande av den meteorologiska buren En meteorologisk bur är en vit träkonstruktion som är utformad fö
