Dataset specification

  • Title: ClimateBasis Zackenberg - Air temperature - Air temperature, 750cm @ 60min sample (°C)
  • Description: Air temperature, 750cm - 60min sample (°C) Air temperature:Air temperature ClimateBasis Zackenberg: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.

Variables measured / columns in dataset

ID Name Unit Data Type Description Date YYYY-MM-DD Date Date of observation Time HH:MM Time Time of observation (UTC) Air temperature, 750cm - 60min average (°C) °C Number Air temperature measured on two proximal climate stations at 750 cm above ground as a 60min sample (%). The double masted climate station is located north of the station at 44 m a.s.l.. The timeseries starts in 1995. Quality control is performed on both datasets from the double mast system. The combined time series is calculated as an average of the 2 sensors, or if data is missing from 1 sensor the other used in conjunction with a regression. Data comments: 14/06/2014 - program change from 60min to 30min sampling, after which 60min data is sampled from the 30min timeseries
