A number of inexpensive, lightweight instrument shelters capable of screening meteorological instruments in the field were required for an ecological research project in northern Alaska. Such a shelter had to be inexpensive, collapsible for shipment, easily assembled in the field, capable of housing recording instruments as large as a Friez hygrothermograph, and comparable to a standard U. S. Weather Bureau shelter or Stevenson screen in its ambinet thermal characteristics. These criteria were met by a design which was fabricated and successfully employed at six sites at Barrow, Alaska, during July and August 1964.
