OTREC Surface GPS-Met Network

A network of 15 GPS receivers with surface meteorological stations were deployed across Costa Rica as part of the Organization of Tropical East Pacific Convection (OTREC) field campaign from 5 August to 9 October 2019. These data are provided at 5-min temporal resolution and include air temperature, surface pressure, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, rain rate, total column precipitable water vapor and zenith total delay. Several sites additionally provide downward solar radiation. Please see the readme file for more details.
