1998 CLIMATOLOGICAL REPORT

C.F. MILLER and J.M. JACOBS


This report summarizes the 1998 weather data collected at the
Everglades Reseach and Education Center, Belle Glade, Florida; R-37-E
T-44-E; Elevation 10.5 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 early morning hours, while the maximum in the afternoon.

SOLAR RADIATION Sunlight energy in Langleys (gram
calories per square centimeter).

RAINFALL Inches of rainfall measured at 8 am. from a standard
rain gauge. Rain that falls from midnight to 8 a.m. is
credited to the previous day in this report.

EVAPORATION A 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 the height of 20 ft.
The wind is reported, in this report, in miles traveled per day

SOIL TEMPERATURE Taken from the depth of 4 inches below bare
ground. Minimum temperature normal 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
at a given temperature, recorded on a strip chart.

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).
