Title:Main Title: Fog and Meteo data from station 13, 2017-2019
Description:Abstract: Fog data from climate station 13 (Cerros de Calate) for the period April 2017 - August 2019. Start- and end-times of fog events. A fog event is identified as a period with a wet leaf wetness sensor and relative humidity above 80%. A fog event must be at least 30minutes long and may contain gaps of up to 20mnutes (see also meta data in the attributes inside the netcdf file) The data set also contains most of the other meteorological parameters of the station - especially solar and terrestrial radiation (calibration corrected), wind speed, temperature, humidity, leaf wetness, etc. Format is gzipped netcdf.
