Tuesday 15/10/2019

Please refer back to my first post for site specifications and to No. 92- Logan City for 2018 specifications.  If you wish to check on this (or any) site for yourself, go to my post on how to check for yourself.

Station: Point Stuart 14254

Opened: 1992

Daily Temperature data from: 2003

Data used to adjust Acorn sites at: —

Location:   Co-ordinates -12.2397 131.8791

115km east-north-east of Darwin.

BOM site plan 2016:

Google satellite image 2019:

The screen is very close to trees. With access only along a fence line the site will be completely inaccessible during and after the Wet. With no maintenance the site will be completely overgrown with grass and weeds for a large part of the year.

This station is non-compliant, with temperatures reported at Latest Weather Observations but not used to adjust data at Acorn sites.

FAIL

Percentage of all Australian sites not compliant: 20.03%.

    This BOM station is in the midst of a swampland Ken… And the river which pours water into the swamp is also extending it’s delta out to sea.

    I am not sure how this affects the temperature readings or even if it does at all..
    But it does make access to do and checks or maintenance very problematic.
