Course in Biometeorological Field Techniques. Final Report to National Science Foundation.
Tanner, C. B.
This is the final report to the National Science Foundation (NSF) from a grant to develop a course in biometeorological field techniques. Objectives of the course were to give students experiences in making field measurements of parameters of the physical environment and their impact on plants and animals; and to develop an understanding of the basic principles of transducers, data logging equipment, and modification of transducers for particular measurements. Another objective of the project was to make available instrumentation to several universities so that field techniques courses could be initiated immediately without a large initial investment in equipment. The course was planned to provide "hands-on" experience with field measurements of biologists, engineers and meteorologists, and to teach some of the fundamentals of instrumentation. The success of the project was mixed in that the number of students receiving "hands-on" experience was low but the students who did participate did receive good in-depth experience and training.
