Dataset specification

  • Title: ClimateBasis Nuuk - Pressure - Air pressure @ 150 cm - 30min average (hPa)
  • Description: Air pressure, 150 cm - 30min average (hPa) Pressure:Pressure ClimateBasis Nuuk: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. WGWT (UTC-3) Air pressure, 150 cm - 30min average (hPa) hPa Number Air pressure measured on two proximal climate stations at 150 cm above ground as a 30min average (hPa). The double masted climate station is located between Badesø and Langsø at 40 m a.s.l.. The timeseries starts in 2007. 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:
