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.
