Navopatía Weather Station, Meteorological and Hydrological Data


Objective:The objective of this database is to measure and identify the seasonal variation of meteorological and hydrological conditions on the southern coastal line of the Northwestern Mexican State of Sonora. This dataset is part of a larger project entitled "Environmental Controls on the temporal evolution of Energy and CO2 fluxes on an Arid Mangrove of Northwestern Mexico". Both the project and the meteorological station are managed and operated by the Instituto Tecnológico de Sonora (ITSON) and funded by the National Laboratory of Coastal Resilience (LANRESC) and the National Council of Science and Technology (CONACYT).----Study siteThe study site is found at the coastal intertidal zone of the northern edge of Mazocarit Island, approximately 400 meters east of the Navopatia Field Station, both located in northwestern state of Sonora, México. The site is characterized by the presence of two dominant species of mangroves (Avicennia germinans and Rhizophora mangle) rooted on salt-silt-clayey sediments. The Mazocarit Island is found within the coastal lagoon system known as the Agiabampo-Bacorehuis-Rio Fuerte system encompassing an area of 90,804 ha in the boundaries of the Mexican States of Sonora and Sinaloa. The navopatia meteorological station is in the northern tip of the Mazocarit Island characterized by the presence of red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle) with the following location:UTM Coordinate systemEasting: 675582.80 Northing: 2921170.99, UTM zone: 12 N, Datum: WGS84Geographic location:Latitude: 26.3999, Longitude: -109.2397, Datum: WGS84.----The meteorological sensors are installed in an 8-meter high tower above the mangrove canopy (mean canopy height = 5 meters), and the hydrological sensors are installed 100 meters north of the tower.
