Author: Glasgow, Lance S.; Wright, David K.; Sutherland, Elaine K.

This data publication contains daily meteorological data collected at the Desert Ridge and Terrace Hills weather stations located on the Coram Experimental Forest (Flathead National Forest) in Montana. The Terrace Hills weather station was installed in May of 1996, and the Desert Ridge weather station was installed in May of 2001. Data are included up through 2015 for both stations. In August (Terrace Hills) and September (Desert Ridge) of 2015 the meteorological sensors, new data loggers were installed and the program updated to collect data on an hourly basis. We are more confident in the new data (not yet published) than the data included in this publication because the old sensors were not maintained as recommended by the manufacturer - as detailed in the accuracy report.
