|Abstract:||During 1972, six test cells were constructed at CRREL for the purpose of studying application of wastewater on various soil types and vegetation. In conjunction with this program, a meteorological opserving station was established in order to obtain basic information on the climate proximate to the test cells. This report describes the equipment and its installation, and provides a daily tabulation.of the following observed parameters: maximum and minimum air temperatures, relative humidity, dew point, wind speed and direction, precipitation amounts, depth of snow on the ground, solar radiation and pan evaporation. The meteorological data collected during the period starting 1 October 1972 to 31 March 1974 were then summarized and the results are presented in a series of graphs and line diagrams. The meteorological parameters recorded at CRREL were then examined to determine how weather can constrain or help year-round operation of wastewater application to the land. The positive and negative effects of air temperature, precipitation, wind speed, evaporation and snow cover with respect to land treatment of wastewater were evaluated. Although no specific recommendations or conclusions arc given, the influences of these climatic elements as observed at the CRREL wastewater site are presented for consideration.|
