Lemon, Greg ; Mangan, Richard J.. 2000. Evaluating Digital Meters for Fire Weather Observations. 0051 2315. Missoula, MT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Missoula Technology and Development Center. 1 p.

Describes tests of seven digital meters that measured temperature, relative humidity, and in some cases, wind speed. Readings from the meters were compared to temperature and humidity readings from a standard sling psychrometer used on the fireline for fire weather observations. None of the units tested was accurate enough to be considered as a replacement for the sling psychrometer.

Keywords: anemometers hygrometers, psychrometers, thermometers
