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.
This is a meterological tripod collecting climate data on a ten minute interval. 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.

Precipitation data is collected from a ridge-top 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.

An EasyEntry program was written in order to efficiently get the precipitation data contained in the 3 Marr et al. reports (listed above) into an electronic form. Data were entered and rekeyed during the early summer of 1993 by Susan Kindig and Mike Sannes. The resulting files were further processed and archived on niwotlter, the NWT LTER server. These files were the source of the data that appear in the data section in this file.The weighing-bucket gauges are currently not in use, although partial precipitation records may exist for the post-1964 period. For periods where the precipitation quantity represents more than a 24-hr period, that quantity is recorded on the final day of the period and the number of days over which that quantity occurred is given in the final field.Metadata for B1 climatological data from other sources can be found at:http://niwot.colorado.edu/meta_data/b-1dp219.ml.meta.txthttp://niwot.colorado.edu/meta_data/b-1mtape.ml.meta.txthttp://niwot.colorado.edu/meta_data/b-1hobo.hourly.jm.meta.txt
