|Hopkins Marine Station has two weather stations at China Point (25' elevation), the Bird Rock Weather Station and the West Beach Weather Station. The West Beach Weather Station uploads data to the web every 10 minutes of the day via the internet that is presented as various summaries of air temperature, solar intensity, wind direction and wind speed. These data are provided courtesy of the Hopkins Marine Station Marine Life Observatory and can be viewed on the Marine Life Observatory's current conditions and last 24 hours weather data plots.
