KBS LTER Weather

Ponciroli, G.

Presented at the All Scientist Meeting (1998-07-21 to 1998-07-22 )

KBS LTER Weather Data can be obtained from the KBS LTER web site at the following URL: http://lter.kbs.msu.edu/weather. There are several dynamic queries that retrieve different weather variables and time periods for three weather stations including the Pond Lab, the LTER main site, and Bird Sanctuary. The Pond Lab and LTER weather stations have comparable equipment and measurements. The standard measurements for these weather stations are precipitation, air temperature, barometric pressure, wind speed and direction, relative humidity, solar radiation, and photosynthetically active radiation (PAR). This data is kept in an Access97 database on an NT server located at the Kellogg Biological Station. Within the database, the hourly measurements are averaged to produce daily, monthly, and annual summaries for Internet publication. Other variables, time periods, and calculated measurements are available upon request.Return to Contents
