Long-Term Agricultural Research (LTAR) network - Meteorological Collection

Metadata Updated: February 4, 2022

The LTAR network maintains stations for standard meteorological measurements including, generally, air temperature and humidity, shortwave (solar) irradiance, longwave (thermal) radiation, wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, and precipitation. Many sites also have extensive comparable legacy datasets. The LTAR scientific community decided that these needed to be made available to the public using a single web source in a consistent manner. To that purpose, each site sent data on a regular schedule, as frequently as hourly, to the National Agricultural Library, which has developed a web service to provide the data to the public in tabular or graphical form. This archive of the LTAR legacy database exports contains meteorological data through April 30, 2021. For current meteorological data, visit the GeoEvent Meteorology Resources page, which provides tools and dashboards to view and access data from the 18 LTAR sites across the United States.
