Abstract: Development of a remotely accessible meteorological data depository from an online server located at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU). Using resources based on existing RENs this facility will allow researchers anywhere in the world to download reliable atmospheric data (in near real-time) from an array of low-cost automatic (and autonomous) weather stations to be deployed across Nigeria. This online database will be useful for the study of the atmospheric phenomena (regional climate modelling, aerosol loading and pollution, etc.).

Note: develop a remotely accessible meteorological data depository (OAU-MET data) based on an array of low-cost automatic (and autonomous) weather stations deployed across Nigeria linked to a web-server located in Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) campus in Ile-Ife. Atmospheric scientists, climate modellers, land-use/land-change modellers and water resources researchers will benefit by the access to the OAU-MET data resources that can be for the study of atmospheric phenomena (regional climate modelling, aerosol loading and pollution, deforestation, increasing aridity and drought, etc.). For the OAU-Met data server, it being envisaged that from existing RENs (e.g., NgREN), researchers from anywhere in the world will be able to download reliable data (near real-time) through the science gateways.
