Product description

This multi-function experiment gathers data on wind, pressure, temperature, and humidity to generate a picture of the planets climate model over time.

Note: Please allow trained Scientists to deploy for best results. Needs a deployed power unit & central station to operate.

Usage

Use a scientist to deploy this experiment. This only works on atmospheric bodies such as Kerbin or Eve.

Science per hour formula

The science per hour formula is as follows: base value of the module (0.3) · kerbal level multiplier · body surface science multiplier

The table for the kerbal multiplier value is the following:

Level Value
Not scientist 0.05
Level 0 0.25
Level 1 0.35
Level 2 0.45
Level 3 0.60
Level 4 0.80
Level 5 1.00

For example a level 3 scientist deploying a weather experiment on Duna gives 0.3 · 0.60 · 8 = 1.44 science per hour
