UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA OBSERVATORIES LICK OBSERVATORY
The figure below shows the positions of the temperature sensors in the 3m telescope dome. There are four sensors at the top of the dome measuring the inside air temperature, inside dome wall surface temperature, outside dome wall surface temperature, and the air temperature between the two dome walls. There are five sensors at the bottom of the dome slit making the same four measurements as at the top of the dome, as well as measuring the outside air temperature.
Data for each week is written into two files. dometemps.mmddyy
contains the data from the 10 temperature sensors mounted on the dome
and teletemps.mmddyy contains data from the 9 temperature sensors
mounted on the telescope and other areas of the 3m building.
mmddyy is the download date of the data.
A new plotting package has been added so you can view the data of your choice on-line, over any specified time period.
