Group: Summary

   This data set includes meteorological measurements from three climatological 
   stations at Robert-Bourassa (LG-2) Reservoir and Laforge-1 Reservoir in 
   Quebec, Canada. Parameters include ground temperature, air temperature, 
   pressure, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, and global and 
   reflected radiation. Measurements were taken every minute, with a storage 
   interval of 60 minutes for air data and 1440 minutes for ground data.
