DOCUMENTATION ACCESS DATA

Summary
This data set presents half-hourly measurements of surface meteorological components (air temperature, precipitation, pressure, relative humidity, wind speed/direction, solar radiation, longwave radiation, Photosynthesis active radiation and snow depth) together with soil temperature and moisture observation. The data has been collected on grassland with a micrometeorological tower (4m height) in Nalaikh, Mongolia, since July 2002 (now in progress). This site is operated by IORGC.
