Quality Mean monthly air temperatures are calculated from all of the available 3-hourly observations within a given month. If less than 200 observations are present, the monthly value is flagged and removed from the State of Environment dataset.

The monthly air temperature anomaly is calculated as the difference between the mean air temperature for a given month and the long-term mean air ... View entire text
