This is a meterological tripod collecting climate data on a ten minute interval. It is located on a ridgetop East of Niwot Ridge at an altitude of 2591 meters. It is located in a clearing surround by a low-density montane forest, consisting of mostly lodgepole and ponderosa pine. The datalogger records values on a ten minute inteval. The parameters measured include air temperature, wind speed/direction, snow depth, precipitation, net radiation, soil moisture, soil electrical conductivity, and soil volumetric water content. This met station was installed to bring the historic B1 site up to date with modern instrumentation. B1 has climate records dating back to the 1950s, and this met station will provide an ongoing comparison for historical datasets. Additionally, B1 is a part of a network of sites along an elevational gradient from the foothills up to the continental divide. This site has been maintained by Boulder Creek CZO with collaboration from Niwot LTER.

Precipitation data are collected from a ridgetop climate station East of Niwot Ridge (B1 at 2591 m) throughout the year using a chart recorder. Initially, instrumentation consisted of an 8-inch metal rain gauge with receiving rim about 3 feet off the ground and measurements were made on approximately weekly basis. More recently, instrumentation consisted of a Fegusson type weighing rain gage. Precipitation was caught in a bucket containing ethylene glycol (to melt snow) and light oil (to prevent evaporation). As the weight of the bucket increased, the pen moved up via a spring mechanism and recorded on a rotating chart. Precipitation was recorded on a continuous basis.
