This dataset was collected under the auspices of ASAC project 1015 (ASAC_1015). It forms part of the RiSCC project (regional sensitivity to climate change). Three hourly meteorological records for mean sea level pressure, surface air temperature, dew point temperature and relative humidity collected at the meteorological observatory on Macquarie Island. Data were acquired from the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), Australia and corrected from records held on the island.
Data was obtained digitally from the Bureau of Meteorology, Australia and is primarily subject to data quality checks put in place by BOM. Following acquisition, data were quality checked against data held at the meteorological observatory on Macquarie Island. Data were subsequently corrected and appended following this exercise.
