The air temperature
data for this station are temporary and will only be displayed for
120 days. Although the instrumentation is calibrated at least
once/year, the temporary classification means that documented routine
inspections and other quality assurance measures are not performed that
would make the data acceptable for archival, retrieval, or future use
in general scientific or interpretive studies.
