Brief description

This historical weather data from the Cape Ferguson (AIMS Wharf) weather outstation covers the period 1-11-1983 to 30-5-1984. \n \n Afterwards, the same unit was deployed at Cape Bowling Green and collected data at that location for the period 18-9-1984 to 4-10-1985. \n \n Both data collection periods used telemetery to send binary data daily to a computer controlled base station. Data was verified by comparing three sets of the same data, received over three days. The base station passed data to the central computing facility at AIMS for processing. \n \n Data recorded covers: Wind direction (0-360°); Wind run (km/hr); Air temperature (0-40°C); Water temperature (0-40°C); Barometric pressure (mB); Solar radiation (0-2500 µE/sec/M2). \n \n Other variables: \n Time of day (e.g. 23:46:03); Day of the year (e.g. 118); Year (e.g. 86).\n These data are collected to support scientific research. Data are made available on request to other researchers and to the public as well as being available from the AIMS web site\n Information about accuracy and the sensors used are in the Data Quality section of this metadata record.\n

Lineage

Statement: The weather sensors used were: \nWind Run: Didcot 3 cup anemometer with magnetic reed switch contact (324 contacts/km wind run). \nWind Direction: Aanderaa Model 2053 Oil damped, 360° solenoid clamped, potentiometer. \nAir temperature: OMEGA 0-90-UUA-35J3 5K thermistor housed in radiation screen \nBarometric Pressure: Aanderaa Model 2810 Monolithic sensing element (temperature stabilised) housed in main equipment enclosure. \nSolar Radiation: Licor Model L1-I92SB Underwater Quantum sensor \n \nAccuracies quoted below are the sum of calibration, sensor change, drift with time, and an ambient \ntemperature range of 0-40°C. \nTemperature: ± 0.3°C. \nWater temp: 30 minutes settling time. \nSolar radiation: 5 % of reading. \nBarometric pressure: ± 1 hecto pascal. \nWind speed 2 % of reading. \nWind direction 2 % of reading. \nSettling time for solar radiation and wind parameters was 30 seconds (anti aliasing filters). \n
