Maldives KCO Meteorology Surface Observations Daily Means [Lobert]


This data set contains daily means for meteorological data (wind speed, wind direction, barometric pressure, air temperature, relative humidity and rainfall) collected at the Kaashidhoo Climate Observatory (KCO) during the INDOEX IFP January to March 1999. Data coverage is (inclusive) 01 January 1999 to 31 March 1999. The instruments were mounted about 14 m above sea level (mean elevation of the site is about 0.5-1.0 m) on the top of the observation tower, except for the rain gauge, which was mounted on top of the roof of the observatory, about 6 m above sea level.
