Summary

Temperature data were collected from ~40 portable data (temperature) loggers and two weather stations located in central North Carolina, USA during August 2015. In addition to temperature, solar radiation and wind speed data were recorded at one of the sites to estimate the effects of these climate variables on sensor bias.

Purpose

Data were obtained in order to estimate the relative bias of different custom-fabricated (or 'homemade') solar radiation shields that were afixed to low-cost portable data loggers. These data loggers are frequently used by ecologists to record temperature for use in global change studies. Yet few studies have systematically compared the efficacy of different types of custom-fabricated shield construction and the magnitude of the resulting biases compared to higher quality sensors from permanent weather stations.
