BELLE GLADE EREC RESEARCH REPORT EV-1985-3 FEBRUARY 1985


1983 CLIMATOLOGICAL REPORT
R. J. Allen, Jr. and L. Schwandes


This report summarizes weather data for 1983 at the Everglades Research
and Education Center, Belle Glade, Palm Beach County, Florida; Lat. 260 40';
Long. 80* 38'; R-37-E T-44-S; Elevation 11.5 ft. m.s.l.

TEMPERATURE: There was one cold spell in December. It was 330 on the 25th
and 28 on the 26th. It was below freezing n- 26. In
January, there was light frost on the 13th we ltea Ar low.

RAINFALL: Total for 1983 was 61.56, an ex ess ofjidL7gy 6qhe 5 ear
average. There was an above average rainf11 in six months.

RELATIVE HUMIDITY: Hours per day above 90- IE J iVdit1iVfiFkOfiFd il to 16.5
in August. Average low percent humidity ranged irom 55 in Apri lV 72 in
December.

WIND: Windrun at 20 feet was highest in March with an average of 227 miles.
It was lowest in August with 92 miles/day.

SOLAR RADIATION: Solar radiation averaged 400 Ly per day, just 4 Ly below the
12 year average. Radiation was below average in 10 months

All observations, except solar radiation which is recorded from a recorder
strip chart, are made at 8 AM each morning and cover the previous 24 hour
period (16 hours of the previous day and 8 hours of the current day). However,
to assist local agricultural interests in comparing this weather data to their
observations of plant growth and product quality, the daily data are presented
in this report on a Calendar Day basis. An explanation of the various columns
follows:

Air Temperature Recorded in standard shelters at 3 inches and 5 feet
above ground.
Ground minimum A.M., recorded only during winter months.
Minimum A.M., usually occurs in the early morning hours.
Maximum P.M., usually occurs in the afternoon.
Mean Average of Minimum and Maximum, approximates average for
the day.

Solar Radiation: Sunshine energy reported as langleys (gram calories per cm2).
Measured by a solar pyranometer and calculated from a recorder strip chart.

Rainfall: Inches of rainfall measured at 8 AM is credited to the previous day
even though some may have fallen after midnight.












Evaporation: Loss of water from a standard evaporation pan. Measurements
at 8 AM are credited to previous day since most evaporation occurs during
sunshine hours when temperature is high and humidity is low.

Wind: Recorded on a strip chart. Count at 8 AM is credited to previous day.
At 2 ft. miles of travel at 6 to 8 inches above evaporation pan.
At 20 ft. miles of travel and direction of travel at top of 20 foot
tower.

Soil Temperature: AM minimum and PM maximum occurring 4 inches below the
surface of bare soil.

Relative Humidity: Hours over 90% continuous, ending on calendar day. Usually
starts in late PM of previous day.
Minimum % Usually occurs in afternoon when temperature and radiation
are highest.

Wetness: Continuous hours, ending during calendar day, that moisture from rain
or dew stays on foliage. May start in late PM of previous day.
