The text file "PET.txt" contains the hourly computed potential evapotranspiration (PET) data from January 1, 1948, to September 30, 2015. This data is computed from average daily air temperature, average daily dewpoint temperature, daily unadjusted wind speed, and daily solar radiation using the Fortran program LXPET. This program is documented in detail in Murphy (2005). Reference Cited: Murphy, E.A., 2005, Comparison of potential evapotranspiration calculated by the LXPET (Lamoreux Potential Evapotranspiration) Program and by the WDMUtil (Watershed Data Management Utility) Program: US Geological Survey OpenFile Report 2005-1020, 20p., https://pubs.er.usgs.gov/publication/ofr20051020.
The text file "Dewpoint temperature.txt" contains hourly data and associated data-source flag from January 1, 1948, to September 30, 2017. Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne National Laboratory, 2017) is the primary source of the data and is processed following the guidelines documented in Over and others (2010). Missing and apparently erroneous data values were replaced with adjusted values from nearby stations used as “backup”. Midwestern Regional Climate Center (Midwestern Regional Climate Center, 2017) station at Chicago O'Hare International Airport is used as "backup". Each hourly value is assigned a corresponding data source flag that indicates the source of the value and its transformations. Each flag is...

The text file "Dewpoint temperature.txt" contains hourly data and associated data-source flag from January 1, 1948, to September 30, 2015. The primary source of the data is the Argonne National Laboratory, Illinois. The data-source flag consist of a three-digit sequence in the form "xyz" that describe the origin and transformations of the data values. They indicate if the data are original or missing, the method that was used to fill the missing periods, and any other transformations of the data. The user of the data should consult Over and others (2010) for the detailed documentation of these data-source flags.

IMPORTANT NOTE: On September 27, 2016, a formatting error in these data was discovered. This error involves extra spaces in certain lines of the .txt data files, which may cause an error in the interpretation of the data values or data-source flags when read by other software. This error has been corrected in the WY 2015 data which can be accessed from this link. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with DuPage County, Illinois, maintains a Watershed Data Management (WDM) database consisting of hourly dewpoint temperature, air temperature, solar radiation, wind speed data based on the data collected at the Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and hourly potential evapotranspiration computed from them...
