Hourly and Daily Summary climate data is collected for Wind Speed, Wind Direction, Solar Radiation, Relative Humidity, Precipitation, Air Temperature, and Soil Temperature.

Jornada LTER climatalogical station on the Jornada basin. Weather station location:

            deg   min  sec           UTM: 331192.4E 3599474N WGS84, Zone 13

Hourly and Daily Summary climate data is collected for Wind Speed, Wind Direction, Solar Radiation, Relative Humidity, Precipitation, Air Temperature, and Soil Temperature.

See LTER Weather Station Documentation Directory for complete description of weather station.

In short, though, from 1983 - May 1991 hourly averages of readings are made at 12 second intervals for each instrument and are recorded using a data logger (AUTODATA10/5). From June 1991 until present, hourly averages of readings are made at 10 second intervals for each instrument and are recorded using a Campbell Scientific 10x datalogger.

Beginning in 1983 the following parameters have been collected: Wind Speed, Wind Direction, Solar Radiation, Relative Humidity, Precipitation, Temperature of Air, and Temperature of soil at Surface, 1cm, 5cm, 20cm, 50cm, 100cm, and 200cm.
