Surface Meteorological (5-minute) Multi-Network Composite [NCAR/EOL]



This data set contains five-minute resolution surface meteorological data in National Center for Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL) Quality Control (QC) format from stations within the following networks: Oklahoma Mesonet, National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Atmospheric Technology Division (ATD) Integrated Surface Flux Facility (ISFF), Texas Tech Wext Texas Mesonet (WTXMESO), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Agricultural Research Service (ARS) Micronet, and the 5 minute surface data extracted from the IHOP_2002 Mesonet 1-Minute Surface Meteorological Composite. Data for the International H2O Project 2002 (IHOP 2002) domain (32N to 42N latitude and 90W to 105W longitude) and time period (13 May 2002 through 25 June 2002) are contained within this dataset. This dataset contains data from 261 stations. In July 2005 the Oklahoma Climatological Survey reprocessed and updated the Oklahoma Mesonet surface meteorological data. EOL has not updated the composite files, however the newer OKMESO data is available.
