A blog about a system to determine terrestrial albedo by earthshine observations. Feasible thanks to sheer determination.

Pressure sensor

Met sensorPosted by Peter Thejll Jun 07, 2012 05:53PM
Arduino code for the BMP085 pressure sensor - it also reads temperature - output is T (in deegrees C) and p (in HPa). Note that this is for Arduino 1.0 only.

//Arduino 1.0+ Only
//Arduino 1.0+ Only

/*Inspired by http://bildr.org/2011/06/bmp085-arduino/

Get pressure and temperature from the BMP085.
Serial.print it out at 9600 baud to serial monitor.
