Climate data measured by automatic Thies weather station of the working group B2.
Additional Infos:
Attention: The old weatherstation was replaced by a new one on 9.6.2010<br/> <br/> The data are quality checked by a standardised method.<br/> <br/> Climate Parameter Quality Check for site El Tiro<br/> Checking modules:<br/> <br/> 1. Does a value exist?<br/> Quality flag is set to <br/> "d = missing"<br/> <br/> 2. Checking of site specific threshold value.<br/> If the value is not inbetween the thresholds the quality flag is set to "c = out of range":<br/> Windspeed max = 25<br/> Rad Max = 1350<br/> tsoil0cm max = 30<br/> tsoil0cm min = 2<br/> tsoil10cm max = 20<br/> tsoil10cm min = 9<br/> Tsoil60cm max = 15<br/> tsoil60ccm min = 7<br/> Air temperature in 2m max = 25<br/> Air temperature in 2m min = 3<br/> Air humidity max = 100<br/> Air humidity min = 10<br/> <br/> <br/> 3. Precipitation check<br/> If precipitation is more than 40 mm then quality flag is set to "c = out of range"<br/> If precipitation is more than 15 mm and air temperature increases more than 0.2 °C inbetween a temporal interval then quality flag is set to "e = variation impossible".<br/> <br/> 5. Wind direction is not quality checked and flag is set to "nqc = not quality checked"<br/> <br/> All other values are set to "a = valid".
