This report summarizes the 2000 manual 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.

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.

RAINFALL Inches of rainfall measured at 8 am. from a standard rain gauge.

EVAPORATION A measure of water loss from a standard evaporation
pan in inches. Most evaporation occurs during sunlight hours
when temperature is high and humidity is low.

WIND Recorded on a Totalizing Anemometer from the height of 2 ft.
The wind is reported in miles traveled per previous 24 hours.

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.
