Organised by the RMetS Special Interest Group on Meteorological Observing Systems

Nowadays many meteorological sensors are available at incredibly low costs, empowering novel applications not previously viable. Low cost sensors lend themselves to being deployed in vast quantities at spatial resolutions unfeasible with pricier equipment. They are also ideal for Citizen Science projects, or for connecting to the ever-growing Internet of Things. In this meeting a variety of speakers will showcase their novel designs and applications detailing the challenges and benefits of supplementing longstanding meteorological sensor networks with low cost instruments.
