Onset, a global supplier of data loggers and weather stations, has introduced the HOBO Green Roof Monitoring System, a research-grade system for measuring the performance of green roofs.

The web-based, 15-channel system (SYS-U30-GRMS-A) is designed to enable users to quickly and easily monitor green roof conditions, measure stormwater runoff, improve irrigation scheduling, measure heat island effects, and maintain healthy rooftop vegetation.
