Summary

These data are supplementary to the journal article Bassiouni, M., Scholl, M.A., Torres-Sanchez, A.J., Murphy, S.F., 2017, A Method for Quantifying Cloud Immersion in a Tropical Mountain Forest Using Time-Lapse Photography, Agricultural and Forest Meteorology, http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.agrformet.2017.04.010. The data set includes cloud immersion frequency, mean temperature, relative humidity and dew point depression values for five sites, representing Figures 7a and 7b in the article, and values used to calculate the averages shown in Table 2. The results cover the time period from March 2014 to May 2016. A list of validation image filenames with their classifications and the set of 7360 validation images for the method are also [...]

Purpose

The data were collected to quantify the frequency, duration, and spatial variation of cloud immersion at 5 sites in a tropical forest from about 600 to 1000 m in altitude. The study site was in the El Yunque National Forest in eastern Puerto Rico.
