Description: A portable station for recording fire weather data has been developed for use in wildland fires, prescribed burns, evaluating sites for fire weather stations, and fire research. Housed in a mechanic's tool box, the station weighs about 60 pounds. One man can have it ready to operate in about 15 minutes. The unit can record five weather variables, but additional data can be recorded by modifying the electronic circuitry. Data are recorded on strip chart recorders.

Keywords: fire weather data, weather instruments, temperature measurements, wind speed, humidity
