A Meteorological Network Using Open-source Hardware and Software
  Location: KFC Courts
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.02
  Time: 6:00PM - 6:45PM
  Author: Sergio Trujillo, Grupo de Física / Gimnasio La Montaña
  Co-Author(s): Juan P. Villamil, Simon Vargas, Juan F Ceron, Fabian Martinez
  Abstract: We design a weather monitoring network in Bogotá, Colombia, using semiconductor devices, Arduino platform, and plotting software developed with open source software processing. Using some open license schematics, teams of high school physics teachers and students build Arduino-based interfaces and plotting/data storage software to install and set up meteorological stations at several schools along the city. We obtain temperature, wind velocity, humidity, barometric pressure and precipitation vs. time plots over variable time intervals to study weather behavior in our city.
