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: Badgingarra Research Station 9037

Opened: 1962

Daily Temperature data from: 1965

Data used to adjust Acorn sites at: Morawa

Co-ordinates: -30.3381 115.5394

180km north of Perth

BOM site plan 2013:

Google satellite image:

An ideal rural location? Not so. The screen is close to a tall crop in large clumps, and there is another growing crop across the road. The surrounding vegetation changes as crops grow and are harvested. As well the enclosure appears not to be well maintained grass to a few centimetres.

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

FAIL

Percentage of all sites non-compliant: 48.65%.

    Ken I am perplexed. What is the crop they are growing around the BOM station ? That Google image does not look like anything I know. Could it be native flowers for bunching & sale ?

    In which event it is sort of representative of the area I guess…

    Puzzling !
