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.
