1978 CLIMATOLOGICAL DATA FOR GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA
In this report, the monthly climatological data reports of the Agronomy
Farm Weather Station, Gainesville, Florida 3 WSW, have been compiled into a
single annual report. The monthly climatological data reports for all twelve
months in 1978 are included. Observation time at Gainesville was 4:30 p.m.
local time. Daily climatological measurements at Gainesville reported on
in this report are:

1. *Air temperature in Standard U.S.W.B. Shelter, Maximum-Minimum.
2. *Soil temperature at 10 cm under grass sod, Maximum-Minimum. .
3. *Precipitation with standard 8 inch gauge.
4. *Pan evaporation from a standard U.S.W.B. Class A Installation.
5. *Total wind movement (miles per day) two feet above ground.
6. Minimum relative humidity from hygrothermograph adjusted to
psychometric readings.
7. Solar radiation, photosynthetically active, expressed in
Einsteins per square meter.
8. Solar radiation total, expressed in megajoules per square meter.

Gainesville data are summarized monthly comparing present, previous
year, and 70-year average, if available. Gainesville precipitation data are
compared to monthly "normal" precipitation, which is average precipitation
for Gainesville during the 30-year period, 1941 through 1970. Precipitation
data are also summarized accumulatively from January 1.

Additional climatological measurements are made at the Agronomy Farm
Weather Station but not included in this report are:

1. Continuous record of relative humidity and air temperature from
hygrothermographs (weekly charts) placed in both 5 feet and 18
inch weather shelters.
2. Time and amount of rainfall from continuous recording rain gauge
(weekly charts). Hourly rainfall data are also published in the
U.S. Department of Commerce publication, "Hourly Precipitation
Data Florida."
3. *Soil temperatures at the 5, 10, 20, and 50 cm depths under grass
sod.
4. Soil temperatures at 5, 10, and 20 cm depths under bare soil.
Climatic observations taken by Mr. John Swearingen and Mr. Jake White.
More information about the above climatological data will be furnished upon
request.

Prepared by D. E. McCloud, Professor.
* Official weather data for Gainesville 3 WSW are available in "Climatological
Data, Florida," published by NOAA, National Climatic Center, Asheville, North
Carolina.
