  • Summer hydroclimatology of an extensive low-gradient wetland: Polar Bear Pass, Bathurst Island, Nunavut, Canada

    Polar Bear Pass (PBP) (75°40′N, 98°30′W) is considered a critical wetland area for migratory birds, caribou and muskox. Little is known of its climatology and hydrology. Here we evaluate both the short-term and long-term summer climatic record for this wetland. A 10 m high automatic weather station (AWS) was established here 27 years ago, and in 2007 this centrally located AWS was supplemented by ...

  • KNMI purchased 50 units of CHM15k - Case Study

    Long before automated weather stations were available, weather and clouds were already observed visually by officially trained and certified meteorological observers. Today, there are still human observers active in many weather services around the globe. Observers look at the sky and estimate cloud fraction in octa and the height of the cloud base. This provides essential information for ...

  • A simple methodology for surface layer characterization during diabatic extremes

    Abstract Increased global environmental awareness has fostered widespread use of remote automated weather station (RAWS) networks to monitor meteorological conditions, and reliance on atmospheric dispersion modeling for decisions concerning pollutant dispersion. Dispersion models require as input a characterization of surface layer (SL) heat and momentum fluxes and turbulence. ...
