Relationship of mean temperatures with screen temperatures
Keywords:Temperature, Daily mean temperature, Diurnal range of mean temperature
An attempt has been made to study the variation in daily mean temperatures obtained from maximum and minimum temperatures and that obtained from hourly temperatures recorded by the automatic weather station at the Agrometeorological Observatory, Anand (Gujarat).
The mean temperatures obtained from the records of daily maximum and minimum temperatures were higher and fluctuated from -1.5 to 1.5 °C during the months of September to May as compared to the respective values obtained from hourly temperatures recorded by the automatic weather station. However, during May to September, these daily mean temperatures were found to be higher than mean temperatures obtained from the automatic weather station. Different coefficients were deduced from the records of the automatic weather station to estimate the hourly temperatures and a model was developed similar to that of William and Logan (1981). The hourly temperatures and the daily mean temperatures so estimated were in good agreement with the respective actual hourly and daily temperatures record by the automatic weather station.
Therefore, by using this model one could estimate the true daily mean temperature from the records of maximum and minimum temperatures.
