WATER: Dataset of mobile meteorological station observations Chinese Version

The dataset of mobile meteorological station observations was obtained in the foci experiment area from March to April, 2008. To synergize the very high resolution airborne remote sensing and ground-based measurements, 11 mobile observations, including meteorological stations (for meteorological data) and GPS (for observation sites), were carried out in Binggou, A'rou and Biandukou. The items included the wind speed and direction at 3.03m (the truck height 1.84m plus the vane height 1.19m), the air temperature and humidity at 3.04m (the truck height 1.84m plus the vane height 1.2m), the surface temperature (the truck height 1.84m plus 1.06m) and the total radiation (the truck height 1.84m plus 1.39m).

The observation sites and time were as follows:

Dadongshu mountain pass-A'rou 15-3-2008

Biandukou-Qilian 18-3-2008

A'rou-Biandukou 19-3-2008

Qilian-Minle 20-3-2008

Mingle-Zhangye 21-3-2008

Binggou-Dadongshu mountain pass 22-3-2008

Binggou-Dadongshu mountain pass 24-3-2008

Binggou-Dadongshu mountain pass 29-3-2008

Binggou-Dadongshu mountain pass 30-3-2008

Qilian-A'rou 31-3-2008

A'rou 01-4-2008

The data were named after WATER_Mobile_ AWS_yyyymmdd (yyyymmdd for observation time).
