Weather Station: Palau: Koror: Ngeanges Island


Since 2007, the Coral Reef Research Foundation (CRRF) has operated a Campbell Scientific automatic weather station (AWS) in Palau designed to measure meteorological/atmospheric conditions relevant to Koror State's Rock Islands Southern Lagoon, a World Heritage Site. With little flat land in the Rock Islands, the weather station is located on a 40-ft tower situated on a karst ridge on Ngeanges Island at 100 ft elevation, about 5.4 km (3.5 mi) from CRRF's study site at Jellyfish Lake. It measures a suite of atmospheric conditions for comparison with CRRF's temporary, floating weather station located on a tripod in Jellyfish Lake, and provides vital data for studying how local weather conditions and ENSO events affect the marine lake environment.
