Screen air temperature measurements 2019-2020

How to cite this Dataset

Description

A comparison between two different thermometer enclosures was undertaken at the Reading University Atmospheric Observatory, to investigate the uncertainties associated with conventional meteorological measurements of air temperature using platinum resistance thermometers. One thermometer was contained within a conventional, naturally ventilated large MetSpec thermometer screen and another within a forced ventilated (electrically aspirated) thermometer screen (Young model 43502). Measurements were obtained between 7 November 2019 (day 188 of 2019) and 16 August 2020 (day 229 of 2020), alongside a wide range of other meteorological measurements also made at the site.
