Climate station data from Whapmagoostui-Kuujjuarapik Region in Nunavik, Quebec, Canada

Data are from the Whapmagoostui-Kuujjuarapik region in Nunavik, Québec, Canada. It contains data from air and ground temperatures, solar radiation and wind speed and direction. The available datasets cover the period from 1987-2019. For each site, the number of measured variables differs. For ground temperature, the depth ranges are as follows: Kuujjuarapik (KJRAPIK): 2-60 cm. Manitounuk Cable TG3 (MANITG3): 0-1600 cm. Manitounuk Cable TG4 (MANITG4): 0-1600 cm. Manitounuk Cable TP2 (MANITP2): 0-400 cm. Manitounuk Cable TP3 (MANITP3): 0-400 cm. Manitounuk Cable TP5 (MANITP5): 0-400 cm. Data are available as: (1) recorded data; (2) daily averages; (3) monthly averages; and (4) yearly averages.

Variable measured
  • Variable name: Average air temperature  Variable description: Average data recorded every minute for the previous period. The average is calculated by adding the measured values and then dividing the sum by the number of observations.  Variable unit: Degree Celsius  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=593802
  • Variable name: Average downwelling radiation  Variable description: Average data recorded every minute for the previous period. The average is calculated by adding the measured values and then dividing the sum by the number of observations.  Variable unit: Watt per square meter  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=593805
  • Variable name: Average ground temperature  Variable description: Average data recorded every minute for the previous period. The average is calculated by adding the measured values and then dividing the sum by the number of observations.  Variable unit: Degree Celsius  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=593801
  • Variable name: Average wind speed  Variable description: Average data recorded every minute for the previous period. The average is calculated by adding the measured values and then dividing the sum by the number of observations.  Variable unit: Meter per second  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=593799
  • Variable name: Maximum air temperature  Variable description: The maximum is determined by selecting the highest value obtained during the observation of the last period.  Variable unit: Degree Celsius  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=593804
  • Variable name: Maximum wind speed  Variable description: The maximum is determined by selecting the highest value obtained during the observation of the last hour.  Variable unit: Meter per second  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=593800
  • Variable name: Minimum air temperature  Variable description: The minimum is determined by selecting the lowest value obtained during the observation of the last period.  Variable unit: Degree Celsius  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=593803
  • Variable name: Sample on wind direction  Variable description: Sample took from the readings obtained during the last hour. The sample is taken on the 60 readings generated per hour.  Variable unit: Degree  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=593806
