INDOEX: Maldives KCO Surface Observations Hourly Means

Summary

This data set contains hourly 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.
