Meteorological Shelter

Meteorological Shelter

 

a shelter that is set up at a weather station to house a psychrometer, a hygrometer, and maximum and minimum thermometers. It consists of a white wooden shelter with louvers to permit free access of the air to the instruments. It protects the instruments from rain, snow, the direct action of the sun’s rays, and radiation from the ground. It is mounted on supports so that the reservoirs of the psychrometric thermometers are at a height of 2 m.

Usually, the phenomenon of thermal inversion occurs during the night (Varejao-Silva, 2006), resulting in temperature close to the surface (equivalent to LST) lower than that measured in the meteorological shelter (Tmin), with thermometer at a height of 1.
In addition, temperatures measured inside the meteorological shelter (Tmin) may not represent adequately air thermal conditions in the surroundings of the weather station (Varejao-Silva, 2006), unlike LST.
