Meteorological data series from Swiss long-term forest ecosystem research plots since 1997

This paper describes meteorological measurements collected since 1997 at 16 ICP Forests Level II sites across the complex topography of Switzerland, both under the canopy and in the open-field nearby. The data offer detailed comparisons of deciduous, mixed, and coniferous forest microclimatic conditions with standard meteorological conditions in the open-field. Contrary to the open-field stations, those under the canopy do not fully correspond to the WMO criteria. Dataset access at Associated metadata are available at
