Title: Temperature, humidity, and precipitation ... at the redwood experimental forest

Station ID: RN-PSW-222

Description: Temperature and humidity were compared and precipitation measured during an 8-year period (1958-1966) for two types of harvest cuttings on the Redwood Experimental Forest, north coastal California. Only small differences in temperature and humidity were found between clearcuttings and selection cuttings in old-growth stands on west-facing and east-facing aspects, and between westerly and easterly clearcuttings. The bioclimate data reported can help researchers in evaluating regeneration and growth studies and in extending the experimental results to other areas, and in ecological studies of the redwood region.
