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



The IHOP_2002 Hourly Surface Meteorological composite contains data from several networks (i.e., Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS), Colorado Agricultural Meteorological Network (COAGMET), High Plains Climate Network (HPCN), Konza Prarie Long Term Ecological Research (KONZA_LTER), Kansas Ground Water Management District #5 (GWMD5), KVII School Network, Unidata Local Data Manager (LDM) World Meteorological Organization (LDMSFCMETR), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Forecast Systems Laboratory (FSL) Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System (MADIS), Missouri Commercial Agricultural Weather Station Network (MOCAWS), New Mexico State University (NMSU), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Profiler Network (NPN), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resource Conservation Center (NRCS) National Water and Climate Center Soil Climate Analysis Center (SCAN) Soil Moisture/Soil Temperature (NRCS/SMST), Southwest Kansas Mesonet (SWKSMESO), Texas North Plains Potential Evapotranspiration (PET) Network, and the Hourly Surface data extracted from the IHOP_2002 Mesonet: 5-Minute Surface Meteorological Composite) for the IHOP_2002 domain and time period. Data from these sources were merged and quality controlled to form this Surface Composite. 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.
