Quality The older temperature data were obtained using traceable
thermometers and hygrothermographs. Wind run, rainfall and pan
evaporation were measured using standard National Weather
Service equipment. The newer electronic instruments are checked
using traceable mercury thermometers, manual rain gauges, etc.
