Description: Special Report
Introduction: A number of inexpensive, lightweight instrument shelters capable of screening meteorological instruments in the field were required for an ecological research project in northern Alaska. Such a shelter had to be inexpensive, collapsible for shipment, easily assembled in the field, capable of housing recording instruments as large as a Friez hygrothermograph, and comparable to a standard U. S. Weather Bureau shelter or Stevenson screen in its ambient thermal characteristics. These criteria are met by the following design which was fabricated and successfully employed at six sites at Barrow, Alaska, during July and August 1964.
