Cape Grim Hourly Meteorological Data



This dataset contains routine continuous meteorological measurements at hourly intervals from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) Cape Grim baseline monitoring station during ACE-1. These data consist of time, scalar and vector wind, temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, rainfall, absolute humidity, baseline statistics, and scalar and vector wind (50 m). Hourly statistics of these parameters are available off-line by request. This dataset was processed with limited quality control following the ACE-1 field phase.
