Hourly automated weather station (AWS) data from Climoor fieldsite in Clocaenog Forest

This resource is made available under the terms of the Open Government Licence

This dataset contains hourly automated weather station (AWS) data from the Climoor field site in Clocaenog forest, NE Wales. It runs from 10/6/2008 until 31/12/2013, and contains air temperature, rainfall, net radiation, solar radiation, photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), wind speed and direction. The dataset has been quality checked, and incorrect or missing values removed, data has not been infilled.

Quality

Lineage
Data was transferred from loggers at the field site onto CEH Bangor's server via a remote telemetry system. Each morning, the previous days data was transferred via telemetry. An automated script transferred the data into the project shared area of the shared network drive. Data quality checking was done on a regular basis by an experienced member of the team who has worked at the field site and on data from the Clocaenog site for 14 years. Data was visually inspected using basic graphing tools, and erroneous values were removed, taking into account the weather at the site during the period in question. Data processing steps included using a macro to combine data from individual 24 hour periods into larger timed periods, then data was cut/pasted into raw data files. Data here is collated raw data, and has only had erroneous values removed.
