As an undergraduate, I designed an independent and redundant measurement system for the Webber Solar Lab which Joshua Rhodes established. My measurement system gathers the solar insolation data and makes it available for both live viewing and bulk historical download. This is the first solar insolation dataset that is publicly available for the Austin area.
