Jornada Basin LTER: Wireless meteorological station at NPP C-CALI site: 1-second summary precipitation data: 2013 - ongoing

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

1-second summary precipitation data at NPP C-CALI met station. Total precipitation per second is recorded only if there is measurable precipitation. This is recorded at an automated meteorological station installed at Jornada LTER NPP C-CALI site.. This climate station is operated by the Jornada LTER Program. IMPORTANT: Rainfall is only recorded when a bucket tip occurs on the tipping bucket rain gauge. If there is missing data due to equipment or other problems, there will be no indication of this within this dataset. The user needs to review precipitation values in the 30 minute, hourly, or data summary datasets to determine if there are missing periods in this 1 second detailed precipitation dataset. Reference the package i.d.'s knb-lter-jrn.210437016, knb-lter-jrn.210437031, and knb-lter-jrn.210437046 for the NPP C-CALI met station 30 minute, hourly, and daily summary datasets, respectively. This is an ONGOING dataset.
