A17. The "Cotton Region Shelter" (it might be better known as an instrument shelter) is a wooden shelter built to stand approximately four feet above the ground and constructed with slats to allow for airflow but to protect instruments from precipitation and solar radiation. It normally housed thermometers (wet and dry bulb, max and min) and assorted other types of meteorological instruments. The shelter protected sensors and other instruments against errors and damage due to solar radiation, wind, and precipitation. It comes in several different models, stand alone (large, or medium), and wall mounts. The NWS presently only uses the medium size. Specifications and drawings for the medium shelter are available from the NWS Operations Division, Engineering section upon request. more
