The Wind Energy Institute of Canada’s Climate Meteorological Station was developed in partnership with UPEI Climate Lab and has the following co-located instrumentation installed to allow for measurement inter-comparisons:
Data from these instruments for the WEICan site and for similar weather stations located across PEI are available through the following sources:
|Source||WEICan Station ID||Description|
|PEI Climate and Weather App||North Cape||Online tool developed and maintained by Dr. Xander Wang at UPEI and is partially funded by the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI and UPEI Climate Research Lab|
|Weatherlink||Norway VV Norway VP||Davis Instruments weather application used to view, analyze, and share weather data from Davis Vantage weather stations. The free Basic Plan allows access to the weatherlink network map and bulletin data tiles.
|CoCoRaHS||CAN-PE-77||Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network is a non-profit network of individuals working together to provide measurements of rain, hail and snow across Canada, the US and the Bahamas.|
This web page provides data from instruments at the Wind Energy Institute of Canada’s Climate Meteorological Station. Described below are the processing steps that were used to make the data files presented in the Download Data section.
The data have been processed to represent mean, maximum and minimum daily values of the data coming directly from the instruments specified in the table shown in the Data Features section. They have been rounded to present values that do not give a higher precision than the uncertainty of the instruments. Precipitation values are the cumulative sum of the precipitation throughout the day, i.e. the daily total precipitation values are presented. Irradiance data are the average hourly raw data and each hourly value is summed to get the total daily values in kWh/m^2. Monthly csv data sheets are provided containing the daily values in the Download Data section.
Most of the data is representative of current conditions; however, the instruments have their limitations and may produce erroneous data on occasion. Please contact us for any questions regarding data quality control and to request more data.
Additional data from other instruments at the Climate Station are available as well upon request. Instruments available but not shown include:
