The first edition of a series of Monana Newsletters dedicated to PWS matters was published in May 2020. It was emailed to people who had expressed an interest in becoming PWS Members and to others who we thought might also be interested. If you are reading this and might be interested in PWS, you should ask to be added to the newsletter distribution list in an email addressed to

Five editions of PWS Newsletters have been published so far, and they can be accessed from the PWS Archive on the Member Resources page.

These PWS Newsletters include some tutorial-style articles, written by Mark Little, which are intended to provide background information for projects that members might get involved with when we emerge from hibernation. Some might be a bit challenging at first. Prospective PWS members will not be expected to master them all, but are encouraged to at least skim through them.

The Leader of the PWS Interest Group (Mark Little, AMetA President) had intended to talk to an inaugural PWS Meeting in March 2020, but COVID-19 put a stop to all that! You can read a copy of his intended talk at this LINK.

PWS Activities Commenced June ’21

PWS activity finally kicked off on Sunday 20th June 2021 in the Greenacres Library, which is located at 2 Fosters Road, Greenacres (near the corner of North East Road and Fosters Road, Greenacres). Mark Little (AMetA President) represented AMetA at a meeting for people interested in IoT (Internet of Things). His aim was to investigate whether air-quality monitoring would be an appropriate activity for AMetA participation, at least to get us started.

See page 4 of the August 2021 edition of the AMetA Newsletter (Monana) for more details on PWS activity in 2021, written by Mark Little.

Currently (June 2022) some PWS members have been attending workshops on a Microclimate Citizen Science project run by the City of Port Adelaide Enfield Libraries. This project is called “From the Coast to the Foothills”; follow this link for details.
