Abstract

Data were collected by the Chilbolton Facility for Atmospheric and Radio Research (CFARR) Meteorological Sensor from 2001 to present at Chilbolton, Hampshire. The standard meteorological measurements are made at Chilbolton in support of all experiments at the Observatory. The data are automatically recorded every 10 seconds from a range of different sensors. The dataset contains measurements including temperature, dew point, pressure, wind speed and wind direction.
