Cranbrook is a quaint town nestled in the Shire of Cranbrook, located in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. Positioned strategically between Katanning, Kojonup, and Mount Barker, it lies approximately 320 km south of Perth. The town, like many others, relies on its natural resources for sustenance, particularly its water sources.
Ensuring a consistent and safe drinking water supply is paramount for any town. Additionally, understanding the evaporation rates is crucial to manage and preserve the water resources effectively. With changing climatic conditions and increasing demands, there was a need for a reliable system to monitor the weather patterns and provide data for evaporation studies.
