Google satellite image 2019:

The paddock around the enclosure has changed from “level and grassy” to a lush crop which, from the shadows, appears to be up to a metre tall. The screen is 5 metres from this crop. As in most rural areas, the surroundings are subject to human caused change.

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


Percentage of all Australian sites not compliant: 37.85%.

    Cressy Agricultural Research Station ? Run by scientists ?
    Or at least run by people who know the BOM’s site guidelines ?

    I guess the scientists at Cressy are too busy doing research to think about the impact of their research on the BOM station.

    Now what crop could it be ? Probably industrial hemp. Which does grow tall and will shelter the screen from winds and also from sunlight.
    Bugger !
