2005 Met Report 2 Guswa and Rhodes, 2006 Executive Summary The meteorological station at the Monteverde Institute (MVI) in Monteverde, Costa Rica measures precipitation, temperature, wind speed, relative humidity, and solar radiation at 10minute intervals throughout the day. For the period from 1 January 2005 through 31 December 2005, annual rainfall totaled 3791 mm, making 2005 the wettest year on record (1973-present). Eighty-two percent of the annual precipitation fell during the rainy season (May through October) and three percent during the dry season (February through April). There were 286 days with rain, and the mean depth of daily rainfall for days with rain was 13.3 mm. The average temperature was 17.8C, the warmest day and the coolest day were 20.3C and 12.9C, respectively. From July through Dece mber, the average relative humidity was 89%. Average solar radiation was 161 W/m2, and average wind speed was 1.8 m/s. This report builds on and complements the 2004 report by Johnson et al. (2005). Monthly meteorological summaries are available at www.science.smith.edu/~aguswa/research.html and more information can be obtained from Prof. Andrew J. Guswa (aguswa@email.smith.edu).

2005 Met Report 3 Guswa and Rhodes, 2006 1 Introduction 1.1 Climate Monteverde, Costa Rica (8448’ W Long., 1018’ N Lat., see Figure 1) lies on the leeward side of the Continental Divide on the Cordillera de Tilarn. Its climate is characterized by three seasons: wet (May though October), transitional (November through January), and dry (February through April). Climate and weather are largely influenced by the migration of the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), as well as by polar cold fronts, Pacific low-pressure systems, nearby tropical depressions, and the trade winds (Clark et al., 2000). Figure 1. Monteverde, Costa Rica lies on the Cont inental Divide northwest of San Jose. From May through October (the wet season), the ITCZ migrates over Costa Rica bringing intense convective precipitation events. Rainfall is heaviest during June and SeptemberOctober and eases slightly during the veranillo or “little summer” in July and August. During the transitional and dry seasons, the ITCZ is located south of Costa Rica, and moisture is brought to the region via northeasterly trade winds from the Caribbean Sea (Clark et al., 2000). Orographic clouds spill over the continental divide, bringing fog and drizzle, and rainfall decreases rapidly going west into the rain shadow of the mountains.

2005 Met Report 4 Guswa and Rhodes, 2006 1.2 Additional Meteorological Data Sources The primary sources for historical meteorological information about Monteverde are daily rainfall records from J. Campbell and A. Pounds measured at the Campbell Farm (see Figure 2) since 1973 (published in Clark et al., 2000 and Pounds et al., 1999). Based on these rainfall data from 1973 to 2005 (Pounds, personal communication, 2006), mean annual precipitation is 2705 mm, with a minimum and maximum annual precipitation of 1973 mm (in 1994) and 3632 mm (in 2005), respectively. The Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) maintains meteorological stations within Palo Verde National Park (1021' N, 8521’ W) adjacent to the Tempisque River on the Pacific side of Costa Rica and at La Selva (1026' N, 8359' W) on the Atlantic Side (see Figure 1). Data from the OTS sites indicate that La Selva receives an average of 4240 mm of annual precipitation, while Palo Verde receives 1017 mm. The two regions differ not only in precipitation totals but also in seasonal precipitation. Sixty percent of La Selva’s annual precipitation and eighty-seven percent of Palo Verde’s annual precipitation falls during the wet season. The average temperature at La Selva is 26C while the average temperature at Palo Verde is 28C. The station at Palo Verde also measures other variables including wind speed, relative humidity, and solar radiation. Average values for these variables are 0.8 m/s, 80%, and 233 W/m2, respectively (Organization for Tropical Studies, 2005). The World Meteorological Organization (2006) provides rainfall data for the cities of Puntarenas and Guapiles, Costa Rica. In Puntarenas, south of Monteverde on the Pacific coast at the mouth of the Gulf of Nicoya, the mean annual rainfall is 1600 mm (determined from records from 1936-2000) with 87% falling during the wet season. In Guapiles, east of Monteverde on the Caribbean side, the mean annual rainfall is 4577 mm (determined from records from 19641998) with 59% falling during the wet season. 1.3 Site Description Since 11 June 2004, Prof. Andrew Guswa and Amy Rhodes from Smith College have operated a Campbell Scientific meteorological station on the roof of the Monteverde Institute (see Figures 2 and 3). This station records precipitation, temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and solar radiation at ten-minute intervals. From June 2003 through June 2004, the meteorological station was located in a forest clearing near the Monteverde Institute (Johnson et al., 2005).

2005 Met Report 6 Guswa and Rhodes, 2006 2 Meteorological Data: 2005 2.1 Precipitation Precipitation at the Monteverde Institute is measured using a Campbell Scientific 8” siphoning tipping-bucket rain gauge. The bucket tips when 0.01 in (0.254 mm) of rainfall accumulates, and a data logger records the observed rainfall depths over 10-minute intervals. The rain gauge has a precision of +/2% for rainfall intensities up to 19.7 in/hr (500 mm/hr). The rain gauge is not designed to measure cloud-water interception, and the recorded amounts may underestimate the total hydrologic input. The data from this recording rain gauge are compared with results from a manual gauge, with accumulations measured at approximately 8 am on regular work days by Marlene Leiton Campbell of the Monteverde Institute (see Appendix B for the complete record of manual measurements). Rainfall measured at the met station in 2005 totaled 3791 mm, the highest total on record (1973-present). From the period 3 January 2005 through 23 December 2005, the rainfall accumulation in the non-recording gauge totaled 3563 mm. This differs by 192 mm or 5% from the 3755 mm measured by the recording gauge over the same period. In 2005, there were 286 days with rain, with a mean daily precipitation of 13.3 mm on those days. Rainfall during the rainy season was 3103 mm or 82% of the annual precipitation, while the dry season experienced 109 mm of precipitation. For comparison, the rainy and dry seasons in 2004 saw 1715 mm and 212 mm of rain, respectively (Johnson, et al., 2005). Table 1 presents seasonal rainfall statistics; Table 2 presents monthly rainfall depths and number of days with rain (at least one tip). Figures 4 and 5 present the daily and monthly precipitation in Monteverde. These figures show clearly the seasonal variation in rainfall. Figure 4 also shows the close match between the recording and non-recording gauges at the Monteverde Institute. Figure 5 includes mont hly rainfall as measured at the Campbell Farm (Pounds, personal communication, 2006). The diffe rences between rainfall at the Monteverde Institute and the Campbell Farm are generally small but show an interesting seasonal pattern. The top graph in Figure 5 shows that the Campbell Farm, which lies closer to the Brillante Gap (see Figure 2), receives slightly more rainfall during the dry season and slightly less during the wet season than what arrives at the Monteverde Institute. Figure 6 below displays a histogram showing the frequency of tipping-bucket tips within each hour of the day for the wet and dry seasons. The dry season is characterized by rain events that occur throughout the day with a slightly greater fraction of the precipitation arriving at night (74% of dry-season rain came between 5 pm and 5 am). The wet season, in contrast, shows strong evidence of afternoon convection, with 64% of the wet-season rainfall arriving between the hours of 1 pm and 7 pm. Table 1.

2005 Met Report 11 Guswa and Rhodes, 2006 2.3 Wind Speed The Met-One anemometer atop the Monteverde Institute has an initiation threshold of 0.447 m/s and a precision of 0.11 m/s. For wind speeds at or below this threshold, a value of 0.447 m/s is recorded. Therefore, we present average wind speeds for periods when the wind speed is greater than 0.447 m/s along with the fraction of time that the wind speed is at or below 0.447 m/s. Figure 8 presents daily average wind speed along with the fraction of each day without wind. Table 3 presents monthly values of these quantities. Daily data can be found in Appendix A.
