Thursday 24/10/2019

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.

Opened: 1942

Daily Temperature data from: 1988

Data used to adjust Acorn sites at: Giles, Meekatharra.

Location:   Co-ordinates  -25.7964 122.9753

BOM site plan 2018:

Google satellite image 2019:

The screen is 4 metres from a bare dirt track, 15 metres from a shed, 15 metres from large trees, and 13 metres from watered grass. This site is better than some, but still doesn’t meet specifications.

This station is non-compliant, with temperatures reported at Latest Weather Observations and used to adjust data at Acorn sites.

FAIL

Percentage of all Australian sites not compliant: 23.48%.

    Yes Ken this site is more compliant than some. But still there are those tall trees just to the North of the BOM weather station and the buildings as well ..

    It’s in a nice sheltered spot there !
