Dataset specification

  • Title: ClimateBasis Nuuk - River hydrology - Air temperature @ 200 cm - 30min average (°C)
  • Description: Air temperature measured on the hydrometric station at 200 cm above ground as a 30min average (°C). The station is located at the outlet of Badesø at 22 m a.s.l.. The timeseries starts in 2006. Quality control is performed on the datasets. Please read the metadata file provided with the data for comments related to the data in this timeseries. River hydrology:River hydrology 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) AT (°C) °C Number Data comments: Quality Flag Text Flag assigned during quality control. Flag = "fair" is assigned instead of good to indicate where a value is interpolated, or, where only 1 timeseries has been used where it is normal to take the average of 2 timeseries. Flag = unknown is equivalent to the flag "good" or "fair" and is due a change in proceedures. Work is underway to update these flags.
