Othmarsingen, Switzerland: Long-term forest meteorological data from the Long-term Forest Ecosystem Research Programme (LWF), from 1996 onwards

High quality meteorological data are needed for long-term forest ecosystem research, particularly in the light of global change. The long-term data series published here comprises almost 20 years of measurements for two meteorological stations in Othmarsingen in Switzerland where one station is located within a natural deciduous forest stand (OTB) with European beech (Fagus sylvatica; 120-140 yrs) and lime trees (Tilia sp.; 120-140 yrs) as dominant tree species. A second station is situated in the very vicinity outside of the forest (field station, OTF). The meteorological time series are presented in hourly time resolution of air temperature, relative humidity, precipitation, photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) and wind speed. Othmarsingen is part of the Long-term Forest Ecosystem Research Programme (LWF) established and maintained by the Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL.
