Wired Pier - Sensors and Locations | Exploratorium Environmental Field Station

On the roof of the Exploratorium, attached to a buoy, and anchored underwater, a variety of state-of-the-art sensors are gathering data that helps us understand the changing conditions of the Bay, the atmosphere, and our local environment.

The Exploratorium owns and operates many of the sensors, while others are on loan from NOAA or other science agencies and institutions. Data from the sensors are displayed here and shared with regional and national data networks.
