|Full Description||Abstract: This package contains automatic weather station readings, recorded between 2015 and 2018, from a site in Tarawi Nature Reserve, first set up in May 2015, replacing an older manual rainfall gauge. Between 1996 and 2011, 53 experimental sites were established on dune crests and upper slopes, of which 29 are located in Tarawi Nature Reserve, 16 are in Scotia Sanctuary and 8 are in Danggali Conservation Park. After initial censuses in three consecutive years (before and after prescribed fire) or two consecutive years (after wildfire), sites are revisited approximately every five years.
A synopsis of related data packages which have been collected as part of the Mallee Plot Network’s full program is provided at https://doi.org/10.25911/5c133088bc5b9.
Sampling method: Data from the automatic weather station is downloaded annually.
Study extent: Automatic weather stations were established at Tarawi Homestead and Scotia Sanctuary homestead in 1994. They record precipitation, temperature, relative humidity and wind speed and direction. Prior to that time, rainfall records had been maintained since 1941 by visually monitored rain gauge. Four additional visually monitored rain gauges were established in Tarawi NR in January 1997, a further five were established in May 2001, and two were established in Scotia Sanctuary in September 2007.
As of May 2015 a new advanced automatic weather station has been deployed at Tarawi site T2005/2. The exisiting rain gauges have been phased out.
Project funding: Between 2012 and 2018 this project was part of, and funded through the Long Term Ecological Research Network (LTERN) a facility within the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) and supported by the Australian Government through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy.
