North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network (NDAWN)Entry ID: USDA0293
Abstract: The "North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network" dataset includes
information on air temperature, rainfall, relative humidity, dewpoint,
wind speed and direction, 10 cm. dept. soil temperature, air pressure,
and solar radiation. The system is designed for agricultural models
but has applications for other areas of research in North Dakota. It
also includes information regarding potential ... evapotranspiration,
heating, cooling, and growing days.
