Data Extent

Long-Term Agricultural Research (LTAR) network - Meteorological Collection

The LTAR network maintains stations for standard meteorological measurements including, generally, air temperature and humidity, shortwave (solar) irradiance, longwave (thermal) radiation, wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, and precipitation. Many sites also have extensive comparable legacy datasets. The LTAR scientific community decided that these needed to be made available to the public using a single web source in a consistent manner. To that purpose, each site sends data on a regular schedule, as frequently as hourly, to the National Agricultural Library, which has developed a web service to provide the data to the public in tabular or graphical form.
