Belle Glade EREC Research Report EV-1993-1 January 1993


1992 CLIMATOLOGICAL REPORT

C.F. MILLER and J.M. JACOBS

This report summarizes the 1992 weather data collected at the
Everglades Research and Education Center, Belle Glade, Florida; R-37-E
T-44-E; Elevation 11.5 ft.m.s.l..

All observations are made at 8 a.m. each day and cover the
previous 24 hour period. However, to support local agricultural
interests, the observed data is reported on the Calendar Day basis. An
explanation of the various weather data collected follows:

AIR TEMPERATURE Recorded in a standard weather shelter, 5 feet
above ground level. The minimum temperature normally occurs
in the #arly morning hours, while the maximum in the after-
nopn. .
SOLARIADIATION Sunlight energy measured in Langleys (gram
calories pe square centimeter).
RAINIALL Incho of rainfall measured at 8 a.m. from a standard
rain gauge- Rain that falls from midnight to 8 a.m. is
dcreited*o the previous day in this report.
EVAPORATOID^- measure of water loss from a standard evaporation
pan in inches. Again, loss from midnight to 8 a.m. is
credited to the previous day. Most evaporation occurs during
sunlight hours when temperature is high and humidity is low.
WIND Recorded on a strip chart from a height of 20 feet. The
wind is reported in miles traveled per day.
SOIL TEMPERATURE Taken from the depth of 4 inches below bare
ground. Minimum temperature normally occurs in the a.m. and
the maximum in the afternoon.
RELATIVE HUMIDITY The ratio between the amount of water vapor in
the air and the maximum amount of vapor which the air could
hold at a given temperature, recorded on a strip chart in the
weather shelter.
WETNESS Hours that moisture from rain or dew stays on foliage,
recorded on a strip chart from an electric moisture cell.
SOLAR THERMAL UNITS These units are based on the equation:
STU Solar Radiation (Ly.)*(mean daily temperature 60).
