Title: Automated Weather Station Data for Ohio
Description:
Abstract:
Data on solar radiation, air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, precipitation and soil temperature are collected. Hourly averages and daily totals and extremes (with times) as appropriate are obtained. Eight locations have data dating back to 1981, one back to 1985, and two recent additions have been made. One location has been recently removed. Data are used to support agricultural research. Collection Organization: CSREES - Ohio State University; Agricultural Research and Development Center Collection Methodology: Data logger-based automatic weather stations. Data collected over telephone lines daily. Sites visited regularly for maintenance. Annual calibration procedures. Data inspected daily for quality control. Collection Frequency: Daily. Update Characteristics: All data are updated. LANGUAGE: English ACCESS/AVAILABILITY: Data Center: USDA Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service Media: Hard disk and magnetic tape. File Format: Random access files. Access Instructions: For online access, contact J.R. Holman at 1-216-263-3772.
