ABSTRACT:
The PRIMET Horizontal Radiation Shield Comparison (PHRSC) experiment compares the difference between the air temperature measurements of a reference temperature sensor inside a fan aspirated radiation shield and temperature sensors located inside passively aspirated radiation shields including a cotton region shelter, Gill multi-plate shield, and a custom-fabricated model. Observed variables include air temperature, wind speed, and incoming and reflected solar radiation. Data was collected in the field between 2010 and 2017 at the Primary Meteorological Station (PRIMET) at H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest, located in Oregon’s Western Cascades (44.21, -122.26, elevation 430m).
