Abstract: 

Monthly total of pan evaporation data collected daily from standard U.S. climatological service instruments located at USDA Jornada Experimental Range Headquarters.

Monthly total of pan evaporation data collected daily from standard U.S. climatological service instruments located at USDA Jornada Experimental Range Headquarters.

Methods: 

field data sheets

Standard U.S. climatological service instruments and recording procedures. Monthly summary data are based on daily readings. NOTE: Daily evaporation is based on THE TIME OF MEASUREMENT BY THE OBSERVER. In review of years 1914-1947 daily records, observer time fell between 1530 and 1900 with most observer times being between 1700 and 1800. Observer times changed to the morning between 0700 and 0900 at an unknown date after this.

Quality assurance: 

Simple summary of daily records. No program.
