AZMET (Arizona Meteorological Network)
The Arizona Meteorological Network (AZMET) began full operation in January 1986 with the mission to provide meteorological data and weather-based information for agricultural and horticultural interests operating in southern and central Arizona. For more than 17 years, AZMET has worked in partnership with Arizona communities, assisted state and federal agencies, provided education programs, and conducted many fundamental and applied research projects. Currently, the AZMET network has 28 stations operating in a variety of rural and urban production settings. Each station is a solar-powered, self-contained unit.
