Dataset Abstract

Aggregated daily measurments for the Gutianshan climate station from February 2009 to February 2012. Mind that only those values with measurement count 288 or 24 are valid, corresponding to 5 min or 60 min measurement intervals.

Additionally an R-script for data aggregation is provided.

Dataset Design

Ecotech Meteostation with Datalogger EnviLog, Vaisala sensor and tipping bucket.
The station measures wind direction, wind speed, temperature, humidity, air pressure, precipitation, solar radiation, PAR (photosythetically active radiation) and soil temperature in 20 cm, 50 cm and 100 cm depth in 5 minute intervals.

Spatial Extent

Gutianshan Nature Reserve, The climate station for the CSP's is situated in 500m distance to the hotel in the Gutianshan Nature Reserve (29°14'39'' N, 118°06'51'' E) at 336 m asl.

measurement_count
The number of measurements for a given day. Mind that there were either measurements every 5 min (resulting in 288 per day) or every hour (resulting in 24 per day). This means, that only those are valid, the others have not been measured in regular intervals, or the logger reported wrong dates.
