Automatic weather station (AWS) data from Sourhope field experiment site, Scotland, 1999-2002 [NERC Soil Biodiversity Programme]

Regular temperature, rainfall and other weather data, as collected between February 1999 and September 2002 from an on-site Automatic Weather Station, located on experimental plots at Sourhope, Scotland. Data were collected as part of the NERC Soil Biodiversity Thematic Programme, which was established in 1999 and was centred upon the intensive study of a large field experiment located at the Macaulay Land Use Research Institute (now the James Hutton Institute) farm at Sourhope in the Scottish Borders (Grid reference: NT8545019630). During this time, the site was monitored to assess changes in above-ground biomass production (productivity), species composition and relative abundance (diversity).

Provenance & quality

Regular temperature, rainfall and other weather data were collected between February 1999 and September 2002 from an on-site Automatic Weather Station (AWS), located on the experimental plots at Sourhope. This was regularly downloaded and transmitted to the Soil Biodiversity Data Manager at the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology. The data are hourly summaries from 5-sec samplings collected by the AWS.
