Multi-scale surface flux and meteorological elements observation dataset in the Hai River Basin (Huailai station-automatic weather station-10m tower, 2015)

Multi-scale surface flux and meteorological elements observation dataset in the Hai River Basin (Huailai station-automatic weather station-10m tower, 2015)

The data set contains the observation data of the 10m tower automatic meteorological station on December 31, 2015 on January 1, 2015 at solstice.The station is located in east garden town, huailai county, hebei province.The latitude and longitude of the observation point is 115.7880E, 40.3491N, and the altitude is 480m.

The automatic weather station is installed on a 10m tower, the acquisition frequency is 30s, and the output time is 10min.The observation factors include air temperature and relative humidity (5m), and the direction is due north.The wind speed (10m), the wind direction (10m), the direction is due to the north;Air pressure (installed in waterproof box);Rainfall (10m);The four-component radiation (5m), the direction is due to the south;The infrared surface temperature (5m), the arm is facing south, and the probe is facing vertically downward.The soil temperature and humidity probe was buried at 1.5m to the south of the meteorological tower. The buried depth of the soil temperature probe was 0cm, 2cm, 4cm, 10cm, 20cm, 40cm, 80cm, 120cm and 160cm. The buried depth of the soil moisture sensor was 2cm, 4cm, 10cm, 10cm, 10cm, 10cm, 20cm, 80cm, 120cm and 160cm.The average soil temperature was buried 2,4 cm underground.Soil hot flow plates (3) are buried in the ground 6cm.

Processing and quality control of observation data :(1) ensure 144 data per day (every 10min). If data is missing, it will be marked by -6999;(2) eliminate the moments with duplicate records;(3) data that is obviously beyond the physical meaning or the range of the instrument is deleted;(4) the format of date and time is unified, and the date and time are in the same column.For example, the time is: 10:30 on June 10, 2015.Data missing due to damage of charging controller from May 30 to June 5 and October 1 to October 9.Soil heat flux G1 due to the heat flux plate problem, the data of April 19 solstice on May 20 was missing.

Data released by the automatic weather station include:Date/Time, air temperature and humidity observation (Ta_5m, RH_5m) (℃, %), wind speed (Ws_10m) (m/s), wind direction (WD) (°), pressure (hpa), precipitation (Rain) (mm), four-component radiation (DR, UR, DLR, ULR, Rn) (W/m2), surface radiation temperature (IRT_1, IRT_2) (℃),Soil heat flux (Gs_1, Gs_2, Gs_3) (W/m2), multi-layer soil moisture (Ms_2cm, Ms_4cm, Ms_10cm, Ms_20cm, Ms_40cm, Ms_80cm, Ms_120cm, Ms_160cm) (%), multi-layer soil temperature (Ts_2cm, Ts_4cm, Ts_10cm, Ts_20cm, Ts_40cm, Ts_80cm, Ts_120cm, Ts_160cm) (℃), average soil temperature TCAV (℃).
