Brief description

This data contains historical weather data from Coral Creek (Hinchinbrook Island), covering the period 16-10-1980 to 30-7-1985. \n \nThese data were collected initially using tapes which were regularly exchanged and later by telemetery which sent binary data daily to a computer controlled base station. Data were 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 \nData recorded: Wind direction (0-360°); Wind speed (km/hr); Air temperature (0-40°C); Barometric pressure (mB); Solar radiation (µE/sec/M2, PAR). \n \nOther variables: \nTime of day (e.g. 21:53:54); Day of year (e.g.118); Year (e.g. 86).\n These data were collected to support scientific research at AIMS. Data are made available on request to other researchers and to the public.\n Information about the sensors used and accuracy are in the metadata section on data quality.\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
