NSF's Davis Pro Vantage 2 system with a streaming wireless upload and a solar powered battery provides year-round data including rainfall, wind speed and direction, atmospheric pressure, temperature, and solar radiation. The data is available online at Weather Underground by looking at the stations assigned to Nantucket Island (Zip Code 02554; location Quaise). Monthly, daily, and yearly data is available. The weather station is also used in hands-on teaching with classes of all ages including the 2nd grader class from the Nantucket New School..
