Air temperature measurements in different thermometer screens

How to cite this Dataset


This dataset contains processed meteorological data from the Reading University Atmospheric Observatory. It provides a series of temperatures obtained from two electrical resistance thermometers, mounted in separate enclosures (thermometer screens). One screen operates by natural ventilation and the other is force ventilated. The dataset includes simultaneous wind speed, solar radiation and terrestrial radiation observations to allow investigation of the air temperature measurement uncertainties, specifically at the times of the daily maximum and minimum temperatures.
