To do[edit]


It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim. As of 7/16/2009, the project has surveyed 1003 of the 1221 US stations, and the data has been further checked for accuracy. Over 90% of the stations are not in compliance in at least one area, while over 60% are badly out of spec. The worst sites are around 8%. The USHCN in its current condition is a demonstration of how not to measure temperature. There has been an attempt to discredit (Menne et al 2010) the surfacestations project using an early data set from when only 43% of the stations had been surveyed and had yet to cover most of the rural sites, where compliance with siting guidelines tends to be better. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bizzybody (talkcontribs) 11:49, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Modern Equivalent[edit]

Even large installations and important stations have been switching from hand acquired data to automatic weather stations. I couldn't find anything in wikipedia about the nomenclature of their components, but I found this Plate Gill Radiation Shield which to me seems to be the modern equivalent of the old stevenson screen. Since I don't know if this is indeed the correct name I'll leave it to the experts to incorporate something along those lines into the article. --BjKa (talk) 11:27, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Stevenson Screen[edit]

Autochthony writes. Does anyone have a first date [year, even] for the use (occasional or widespread) of a Stevenson screen? Autochthony asked - 2012 09 21 2257 Z (talk) 22:57, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
