Alternate Identifier: knb-lter-mcr.9

These data provide near real time meteorological information measured at the GUMP research station on the north shore of Moorea island, French Polynesia. Data collection began in August, 2006 and include air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, solar radiation, atmospheric pressure, and integrated rainfall. All sensors are sampled every 5 minutes. Post processing of these data is limited to some unit conversion and exclusion of corrupted data records. This data package is a static snapshot of the real-time data.

Aggregate data are provided in daily, weekly, monthly and yearly time bins.

ClimDB data for station GUMPM are derived from the same data source.
