   This data set includes meteorological measurements from five climatological 
   stations in Quebec, Canada: Tantar (ecological reserve, forest), Clearwater 
   Lake (peaty islet), Boniface River (forest and tundra), and Bush Lake 
   (tundra). Parameters include ground temperature, air temperature, relative 
   humidity, wind speed and direction, and global and reflected radiation and/or 
   photosynthetically active radiation (PAR). Measurements were taken every 60 to 
   3600 seconds, with a storage interval of 60 to 1440 minutes.
