DATASET OVERVIEW

Abstract

This data set contains the Coordinated Enhanced Observing Period (CEOP) Enhanced Observing Period 3 and 4 (EOP-3 and EOP-4) CEOP Asia-Australia Monsoon Project (CAMP) Northern South China Sea hourly Surface Data Set. This Data Set covers 25 sites: Alishan, Anpu, Chengkung, Chiayi, Chutzehu, Hengchun, Hsinchu, Hualien, Ilan, Jiyuehtan, Kaohsiung, Keelung, Lanyu, Pengchiayu, Penghu, Suao, Taichung, Tainan, Taipei, Taitung, Tanshui, Tawu, Tungchitao, Wuchi and Yushan. This dataset contains the entire EOP-3 and EOP-4 time period (i.e., 1 October 2002 through 31 December 2004).

DATA PROCESSING

Data Processing (1)

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

Air pressure, Air Temperature, relative humidity, Dewpoint Temperature,

Wind speed and direction are instantaneous values.

Precipitation is accumulated on the previous minute.

And the two parameters indicated below were computed by using

"CEOP Derived Parameter Equations:

http://www.joss.ucar.edu/ghp/ceopdm/refdata_report/eqns.html" .

also put the data flag "I",

Specific Humidity were computed by using (Bolton 1980):

e = 6.112*exp((17.67*Td)/(Td + 243.5));

q = (0.622 * e)/(p - (0.378 * e));

where:

e = vapor pressure in mb;

Td = dew point in deg C;

p = surface pressure in mb;

q = specific humidity in kg/kg.

U,V Components (4.6m) were computed by using (GEMPAK):

U = -sin(direction) * wind_speed;

V = -cos(direction) * wind_speed;
