Weather Data (up to end of June 2017)

Meteorological parameters are recorded every 10 minutes by a Campbell Scientific BSW-200 weather station. The measurements in Ballycanew started April 1st 2009 and consist of: air temperature (°C) relative humidity (%), solar radiation (W mˉ²), wind speed (m sˉ¹), wind direction, rainfall (mm) and soil temperature (°C). Potential evapotranspiration is estimated from the above weather parameters using the Penman-Monteith equation.

A) Monthly average, minimum and maximum air temperature and average soil temperature at 10 cm depth.

B) Monthly total rainfall and total potential evapotranspiration (PET)

C) Monthly mean and maximum wind speed.
