Contribute to the Cape Breton Mesonet


The Cape Breton Mesonet provides accurate, high-density weather data for Cape Breton Island and parts of mainland Nova Scotia. The mesonet is and always will be an open-source platform of live and archived weather data, free for everyone to use.

The mesonet has grown exponentially over the last several years and maintenance costs have risen along with that. Normal wear and tear on weather instruments require certain sensors to be replaced every 3-4 years. For example, wind sensors are usually are fully exposed to the elements and are often the first to fail. The wind cups (which measure speed) spin millions of times per month.

Donations would help offset the personal cost of maintaining sensors in the mesonet. This will help to ensure that proper sensor maintenance is performed at regular intervals, resulting in consistent, accurate weather data for all weather stations on the network. Any help, no matter how large or small is greatly appreciated.

Thank You.
