Various instrument companies have manufactured compact, all-in-one sensor packages that measure a suite of meteorological variables such as air temperature, wind speed and direction, humidity, pressure, and precipitation. These sensor packages allow for observations to be collected while maintaining a small footprint and utilizing low power consumption. Six of these sensor packages from different companies were independently tested alongside reference sensors typically used in full-sized weather stations and the statistical results of the comparisons of their meteorological measurements will be presented.
