Evaluation of the spacial representativity of the air temperature measured at meterological stations in Anolalousien
The present paper presents an innovative approach allowing one to evaluate the spatial representativity of the air temperature measured at meteorological stations. Taking into account NOAA-AVHRR derived surface temperatures and environmental data of the station surroundings, an evaluation of the meteorological network is done. A series of surface temperature maps are prepared from NOAA-AVHRR images. The spatial variability of the thermal field around each station is then analysed together with the environmental conditions and as a function of the season. The zone of spatial representativity for each meteorological station is then defined. The paper presents results obtained for selected meteorological stations in Andalusia in southern Spain.
