Dataset specification

  • Title: ClimateBasis Disko - Temperature - Air temperature @ 200 cm - 60min sample (°C)
  • Description: Air temperature at 200 cm above ground, sampled once per hour. This timeseries is a continuation of measurements taken at the former town station since 1993, hence the 1h sampling frequency. The town station was converted into a GEM climate station in 2016. Temperature:Temperature ClimateBasis Disko:The ClimateBasis programme monitors climate and hydrology in Zackenberg, Kobbefjord and Disko (Qeqertarsuaq) and is run by Asiaq - Greenland Survey. The collected data build base-line information on climate variability and trends for all the other sub-programmes within GEM and serve as a trustworthy foundation for adaptation strategies for the Greenlandic society. The stations are embedded in Asiaq’s extensive climate and hydrology monitoring network. Furthermore, the run-off data is delivered to the World Hydrological Cycle Observing System (WHYCOS) and the Global Runoff Data Centre (GRDC) networks.
