Arduino MKR Environmental Shield Rev2 allows an MKR board to acquire environmental data collected by an array of sensors. The sensors are the latest generation and measure for atmospheric pressure, temperature and humidity, and light intensity (in LUX). Build projects and store the data collected locally. The shield has a slot for a microSD card (not provided). A ready-to-use library features examples and methods to read values from the different sensors. This provides an easy and smooth integration path.

The concept is great -- this board is easy to connect and use with the MKR series controllers. Unfortunately, the sensors are located close to significant heat sources on the main board. I measure an offset of at least 3 degC due to heating from the processor and WiFi module. There is no good configuration here. The only options are to use a fan for active cooling, isolate the board by not stacking it, or program an offset into measurement readings. The offset method is simple, but doesn't account for secondary offsets in humidity and pressure readings.
Final judgement - not good for environmental monitoring.
