The early portion of this dataset was peer-reviewed and published

In: International Sustainable Ecological Engineering Design for Society (SEEDS) Conference 2018 Conference Proceedings. SEEDS 2018, 06-07 Sep 2018, Dublin, Ireland. LSI Publishing , pp. 110-121. ISBN 978-0-9955690-3-4.

Sensors provided by National Centre for Atmospheric Science, (Natural Environmental Research Council), at the University of Leeds.

15 minute screened (shade) temperature and humidity sensors mounted 2 meters up on signposts on the campus of the University of Leeds, and three meters up a tree at the Mill Hill Chapel where Joseph Priestley promoted Science and Unitarianism before his move to assist Thomas Jefferson and others in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in founding the United States.of America.

Subsequently during a particularly warm summer day in 2019 the coolest location of all sites was Priestley_Bldg on the University of Leeds Campus, being half of one degree cooler than Mill Hill.

Observations Sat 29 Jun 2019 03:30 PM GMT (29 Jun 2:30 PM BST) are compared below, where ΔT denates the microclimatic urban heat island intensity (µHII) relative the the Mill Hill Chapel (base) temperature

No guarantee can be given to accuracy of sensors.

Sensors measured temperature and RH - dewpoint was calculated by Onset software to export CSV files:

Temperature - degrees Celsius.

Relative humidity - % of moisture in the air.

Dewpoint temperature - degrees Celsius

Sensor make Onset HOBO Pro v2 ext temp/RH.

There have been some sense checks periodically when data has been required for specific purposes. There are periods where the screen and sensor was knocked loose of it's mounting at the Sustainability Garden (when no smoking sign was mounted by Estates) and water and damp leaves entered the shade screen, upsetting the observations.

It is intended to eventually return sensors in NCAS to compare and assess possible drift since calibration.
