Hourly data from automatic water monitoring buoy from Blelham Tarn, 2016 to 2018

This dataset consists of hourly lake temperature, air temperature, solar irradiance and wind speed data from an automatic water monitoring buoy on Blelham Tarn, a lake in the North West of England. The lake temperatures are measured at 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12 m depth (see supporting documentation for more information). Measurements were taken every 4 minutes and calculated as hourly averages. All data is given in GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). The data were collected by the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology.
This work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council award number NE/R016429/1 as part of the UK-SCAPE programme delivering National Capability.

Provenance & quality

The instruments measure data every 4 minutes, the hourly averages provided in this dataset are calculated by an Oracle database. The average is calculated over the previous hour, e.g. the value for 2 p.m. is the average of the data between 1 and 2 p.m., excluding the data measured at 1 p.m., including the data measured at 2 p.m.
Data has been checked visually and any obvious errors introduced by hardware malfunctioning have been removed. Any data gaps are due to buoy maintenance work or sensor / logger problems.
