Sierra Willow Beetle Project ftp site.
This site contains raw data files from 10 years of temperature data collected inside willow canopies in several eastern Sierra drainages at approximately 40 sites total. It also contains data from 11 weather stations located in three drainages and at multiple altitudes since 2010.
To access the data you will need:
ftp client software such as the free downloadable filezilla
http://filezilla-project.org/, then navigate to ftp://www.wmrs.edu/weatherbeetle** a password obtainable by contacting John Smiley (jsmiley[at]ucsd[dot]edu), and explaining to him how you plan to use the data
to open the data files you will need "HOBOware" software, obtainable from Onset Computer Corporation (
The files are named according to the site names, which are listed in the
beetle site info excel file and the beetle project sites.kmz (Google Earth) file
In most cases there are 2-3 files generated for each site, each year:
One includes the period between the fall download (September/October) and the spring download (June). These are usually in the "spring downloads" folder.
Sometimes there is an additional spring download file with data from mid-June to mid-July, also kept in the "spring downloads" folder.
The other includes the period between the last spring download and fall download. These are in the "fall downloads" folder
These are variously labelled over the years, but usually they can be easily identified.
In some cases the files include a full years' data.
**using filezilla as an example:
In filezilla, start a new ftp site.
In the box, type the name of the host: www.wmrs.edu
Then type the user: weatherbeetle
Type the password (see above) and push enter
That should get you in.
