This page presents the latest measurements recorded by the environmental monitoring system on Carrie Bow Cay. The environmental monitoring system utilizes a custom data communication and management system that provides unattended processing and transfer of the data from Carrie Bow Cay to a dedicated server at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC for display on this web site. Measurements of weather and water conditions are taken every 10 minutes by the system. The time of the measurements is shown in local Belize time. The time in Belize is one hour behind US Eastern Standard time. Belize does not implement Daylight Savings hence it is two hours behind US Eastern Daylight time. (Note: Every effort is made to post the data on this web site within seconds after it is acquired on Carrie Bow Cay however this process is occasionally interrupted by power or Internet outages.)
