Estimated daily precipitation at the 15 ANPP sites: 1980-2010

Study number: 

425

Data set ID: 

210425001

Date range: 

1980-01-01 to 2010-12-31

Abstract: 

Estimated daily precipitation is calculated for each of 15 aboveground net primary productivity (ANPP) sites located in the 5 dominant vegetation zones on the Jornada Basin. The 15 sites were formally established in 1989 as LTER Study 268, but these rainfall estimates begin in 1980 using the closest rain gauge that provides a minimum resolution of daily precipitation data.

The Methodology section describes this in detail. The rain gauges are detailed inthe file raingauge_picks.csv.

JER standard gauge monthly precipitation data

Study number:

Data set ID:

Date range: 

1915-01-01 to 2011-09-30

Original investigator: 

USDA ARS Jornada Experimental Range (JER)

Data contact: 

Abstract: 

The objective of this long-term project is to measure the precipitation across the entire Jornada Experimental Range. This is achieved by using a network of standard-can rain gauges to continually collect the precipitation as it occurs. The collected precipitation is then measured monthly and the results are recorded on a data sheet which is later entered into a spread sheet.

Evaporation pan data beginning 1983 - Jornada LTER Weather Station

Study number: 

127

Data set ID: 

2100127001

Date range: 

1983-07-13 to 2012-06-08

Original investigator: 

Walter G Whitford

Data contact: 

Abstract: 

Surface evaporation is measured weekly to twice weekly using an evaporation pan compatible with standard National Weather Service evaporation measurements. Measurements are made twice per week during hot periods because of high evaporation rate.

The following data is collected: number of days between measurements, beginning and ending measurement period, current, minimum, and maximum water temperature; initial water level; final water level; rainfall since last evaporation measurement, and calculated evaporation (inches).

LTER Weather Station hourly summary climate data

Study number:

Data set ID: 

210126002

Date range: 

1983-03-01 to 2015-08-27

Original investigator: 

John Anderson

Data contact: 

Abstract: 

Hourly summary values of averages of readings of the following parameters are made which are based on data recorded on a Campbell CR10(X) data logger: maximum, minimum, and average air temperature; maximum and minimum relative humidity; total precipitation; average wind speed; maximum wind speed; average wind direction; total incoming solar radiation; average soil temperature at 5cm and 20cm; m

ean dew temperature. From 1983 - 5 June 1991, readings on which hourly averages are based were made at 12 second intervals. From 6 June 1991 to present, readings on which hourly averages are based are made at 10 second intervals.

Dipstick rain gauge data - LTER Weather Station

Study number: 

126

Data set ID: 

2100126003

Date range: 

1992-07-06 to 1998-10-27

Original investigator: 

John Anderson

Data contact: 

Abstract: 

This primary purpose of this data set is to validate the LTER Weather Station tipping bucket rain gauge data. The dipstick rain gauge (DSRG) data is measured at least weekly during scheduled maintenance trips to the LTER Weather Station to maintain the evaporation pan water levels. During the summer months this may be twice a week.

Additionally, DSRG data is collected after any rain event that requires the collection of the Wetfall/Dryfall precipitation buckets which are located about 10 meters from the DSRG. This is usually any amount greater than 0.02". DSRG data is also collected after very small events when personnel are in the vicinity.

Monthly graduated rain gauge (GRG) precipitation at 15 NPP sites (LTER-II)

Study number: 

2

Data set ID: 

210002001

Date range: 

1989-01-03 to 2017-01-23

Original investigator: 

Laura Huenneke

Data contact: 

Abstract: 

A 4" diameter cylindric graduated rain gage (11" x 0.01" capacity) is mounted on a 4x4 inch diameter redwood post or on a wooden exclosure post next to gate at or near the 15 LTER-II NPP sites. Collection is made monthly on the day that monthly soil water content measurements are made to correlate precipitation input with belowground water content.

Data is collected primarily from graduated rain gauges. However, when missing data would result otherwise, amounts from the closest rain gauge are used in order to maintain as complete a data set as possible for that site. The rain gauge used is identified with each rainfall record. Other types that may be used are the Standard Can Gauge (DSRG or dipstick rain gauge), Belfort Weigh Bucket Rain Gauge (WBRG), and Qualimetrics Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge (TBRG).
