NARSTO EPA Supersite in Fresno BAM Meteorological DataEntry ID: NARSTO_EPA_SS_FRESNO_MET_DATA
Abstract: This data set contains measurements taken from six meteorological instruments operated at the Fresno super site from 5/24/2000 to 12/31/2006. The ambient temperature is measured by a Met One Instruments aspirated thermistor, Model 060A-2. The barometric pressure is measured measured by a Met One pressure transducer, Model 090D. The relative humidity is is measured measured by a Met One aspirated ... thin film capacitor, Model 083V. The solar radiation is measured by a LI-COR Inc. pyranometer, Model LI-200SA. The wind speed is measured by a Met One Instruments 3-cup anemometer, Model 010-SC. The wind direction is measured by a Met One Instruments High-Sensitivity wind vane, Model 025-5C. All six instruments report 5 minute samples.
The Fresno Supersite is one of several Supersites that was established in urban areas within the United States by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to better understand the measurement, sources, and health effects of suspended particulate matter (PM). The site is located at 3425 First St., approximately 1 km north of the downtown commercial district. First Street is a four-lane artery with moderate traffic levels. Commercial establishments, office buildings, churches, and schools are located north and south of the monitor. Medium-density single-family homes and some apartments are located in
the blocks to the east and west of First Street. The Fresno Supersite began operation in May of 1999 and continues today. Other sponsors of this on-going monitoring program include the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
