Masdar Institute Alert Network Information System

May 11, 2020

The MI Alert Network Information System relies on the Masdar Institute Beam Down Radio Frequency Internet link and the Masdar Institute Campbell Scientific Data Logger Network, to transmit data from most of the stations and instruments (Temperature, Relative Humidity, Direct Normal and Diffuse Horizontal Irradiances, Wind at 2, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50m, barometric pressure, dust level) described above to a central repository. SAM sun and aureole images are archived on a growing (n=6 as of March 2020) repository of 8-TB drives. Sun Photometer data is transmitted to NASA where it is made available along with data from 400 other Aeronet sites to all aerosol and climate scientists. SPARTAN data and sampling filters are transmitted to Dalhousie University where is archived with data from ten other SPARTAN sites around the world and made available to international collaborators.
