Field experiment on the effects of a nearby asphalt road on temperature measurement Mariko Kumamoto 1, Michiko Otsuka 2, Takeshi Sakai 1 and Toshinori Aoyagi 2 1 Meteorological Instruments Center, JMA, Tsukuba, Japan 2 Meteorological Research Institute (MRI), Tsukuba, Japan TECO-2012 (Brussels,Belgium,17 Oct. 2012) 3（5）3（5） S N wind Summer Meteorological Instruments Center, Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) 1
However, interpretation of such metadata is unclear without any theory or guidelines based on related experiment or research. Metadata describing site environment would be helpful. e.g. the WMO siting classification (CIMO Guide) Needs for observing temperature data of high quality from data users Many JMA stations are located in urbanized areas and surrounded by artificial heat source (buildings, car roads, car parks, artificial surfaces … ).. 0．Background 2
1. Purpose of Study 3 Focus on the effects from asphalt surface on temperature measurement Clarify the characteristics of temperature distribution near an asphalt car road – With relation to the distance from the road, wind condition and mounting height of sensors Better interpretation of siting metadata to estimate temperature measurement uncertainty Glass Asphalt road T ref T 1 Ｔ 2 Ｔ 3 Ｔ 4 Heated Air WIND

At 1.5m height, even when the wind speed was relatively weak, the highest frequency of δTs appeared around 0.0 ℃ to +0.2 ℃ regardless of the distance from the road.
4．Summary 8 The extent of effects of the asphalt road (10m in width) A t the height of 1.5 m, t he high frequency of δTs for the total period was around +0.1 – +0.2 ℃ and 0.0 ℃, for summer and for winter respectively. At the height of 0.5 m, t he effect depends significantly on the distance from the road. Not much difference at the height of 1.5 m. When the wind speed is over 2 m/s in summer or over 1 m/s in winter, t he effect is reduced. We presented only summer cases. If you would like to know winter cases or much more in details, please read papers.
よとｈ 5. Conclusion 9 The effects of the road depend much on prevailing wind directions. were reduced when the wind was relatively strong. In the implementation of the WMO siting classification, we also need to take wind conditions into account. From the results of the field experiment, As a next step, we study the effects of nearby trees on the wind speed and temperature measurement by field experiment. Surrounding objects such as buildings or trees may reduce the wind speed and affect temperature measurement. How effect by the windward side? 0 40m (Image:Google Maps)
To support reliable high-quality climate monitoring, it is necessary to consider how environmental changes around the site influence observation data. The examination is performed to allow quantitative evaluation for the effects of trees located at one side of the field on temperature and wind measurement data.
