Jornada Basin LTER Cross-scale Interactions Study (CSIS) Block 14 meteorological station: 5-minute summary wind and air temperature data: 2013 - ongoing

posted on 2023-11-30, 10:11 authored by John Anderson

This data package contains 5-minute air temperature and wind summary data from Jornada Basin LTER Cross Scale Interactions Study (CSIS) Block-14 met station. Average air temperature, wind speed, and wind direction are measured and calculated at an automated meteorological station connected to a 900 MHz spread spectrum wireless network. Wind speed is measured at 37cm, 75 cm, 150 cm, and 300 cm, wind direction at approximately 3m, and air temperature and relative humidity at approximate 2.5m. This is a subset of baseline weather data collected at the 15 Jornada Basin LTER CSIS study blocks, New Mexico. Measurements are aggregated at intervals of 5, 30, 60 minutes and daily, with precipitation additionally provided with 1 second aggregation during precipitation events. The met station variables measured include air temperature, precipitation, relative humidity, wind direction, wind speed. Precipitation is not measured at Block 1 and Block 12 because of proximity to Block 2 and Block 13, respectively . This is an ONGOING dataset.
