DATASET OVERVIEW

Abstract

Intensive meteorological observations in the Khumbu Valley, Nepal Himalayas, have

been conducted since the middle 90's (Ueno et al., 1996; Tartari et al., 1999;

Bertolani et al., 2000; Ueno et al., 2001; Bollasina et al., 2002; Ueno and Pokhrel,

2002) in order to provide long-term monitoring of the monsoon at high altitude. This

area, being located on the windward side of the Range with respect to the Indian

monsoon, is well exposed to the summer winds. The studies conducted have demonstrated

that the region is a significant point of observation both of local climate and large-

scale circulation. A network of Automated Weather Stations (AWSs) has been established

in the Eastern Himalayas: the AWSs are located at different altitudes, over a 40 km

stretch oriented approximately south to north.

DATA PROCESSING

Data Processing (1)

General Explanation of the data producer's knowledge about the lineage of a dataset

Temperature, relative humidity and solar radiation are instantaneous values.

Precipitation is accumulated on the previous hour. Atmospheric pressure is averaged

over the previous hour. Wind speed and direction are the resulting average speed and

direction over the previous hour (calculated by the datalogger by means of data

recorded every 5 seconds): this to minimize data unreliability due to sudden gusts.

Both of them are calculated weighting the frequency distribution of both variables

within each hour.

DATA POLICY

Data Policy by the Data Provider

1. No financial implications are involved for the CEOP reference site data exchange.

2. Commercial use and exploitation of CEOP reference site data is prohibited.

3. Any re-export or transfer of the original data received from the CDA archive to a third party is prohibited.

4. The origin of CEOP reference site data being used for publication of scientific results must be acknowledged and referenced in the publication.

5. CEOP reference site data users are strongly encouraged to establish direct contact with data providers for complete interpretation and analysis of data for publication purposes.

6. Co-authorship of data users and CEOP reference site Principle Investigators on papers making extensive use of CEOP data is justifiable and highly recommended.
