Back in 2011 two of my colleagues at Cirrus wrote a paper that discussed the issues surrounding the effects of weather, damage and ageing on the performance of windshields used on outdoor microphones.

With the weather that we've had recently, it was an interesting read, especially the section that discusses the effects of moisture and low temperatures on the performance.

If you've got equipment that is permanently outdoor and that has been subjected to the recent cold (and now wet) weather, are you certain that the measurements you are getting are still valid?

There's always been discussions around how often noise measurement equipment that is permanently installed should be calibrated, especially if it's in a location that could suffer from bad weather but have you thought about the windshield that protects the microphone?

It seems that sometimes this simple piece of what can be very expensive equipment is forgotten about. At Cirrus, we choose the materials and manufacture of our windshields carefully but are you sure that your current supplier has done so? Something to think about.

Here's a link to the paper:
