Variable measured
  • Variable name: Air temperature  Variable description: The air temperature is measured by a thermistor (Campbell Scientific, resolution of 0.01 °C, accuracy of ± 0.2 °C) installed in a solar radiation shield located 2 m above the ground surface. Data are available as: (1) recorded data, which are measured at one hour interval; (2) daily averages; (3) monthly averages; and (4) yearly averages.  Variable unit: Degree Celsius  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=592505
  • Variable name: Rainfall  Variable description: The precipitation is measured at the same location by a tipping bucket (TE525WS, Campbell Scientific, resolution of 8.25 ml, accuracy of ± 1.0 %). Data are available as: (1) recorded data, which are measured at one hour interval; (2) daily averages; (3) monthly averages; and (4) yearly averages.  Variable unit: Millimeter  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=592506
  • Variable name: Solar Radiation  Variable description: The solar radiation is measured by pyranometer (SP Lite2 Silicon, Kipp & Zonen, Gamme spectrale: 400 to 1100 nm, précision de ± 2.5%). Solar radiation datasets cover 23/10/2012 to 31/12/2018  Variable unit: Watt per square meter  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=592508
  • Variable name: Wind direction  Variable description: The wind speed is measured by anemometer (Campbell Scientific, resolution of 0.0980 m/s, accuracy of ± 0.3 m/s), located at 3.5 m above the ground surface.  Variable unit: Degree  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=592587
  • Variable name: Wind Speed  Variable description: The wind speed is measured by anemometer (Campbell Scientific, resolution of 0.0980 m/s, accuracy of ± 0.3 m/s). Wind speed cover the period from 02/10/2008 to 31/12/2018.  Variable unit: Kilometer per hour  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=592507
