Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 September 1997
Status: active
Page Count: 5
ICS Code (Temperature-measuring instruments): 17.200.20
scope:

This practice provides procedures to measure representative near-surface atmospheric (outdoor air) temperature for meteorological purposes using commonly available electrical thermometers housed in radiation shields mounted on stationary or portable masts or towers. 

This practice is applicable for measurements over the temperature range normally encountered in the ambient atmosphere, -50 to +50°C. 

Air temperature measurement systems include a radiation shield, resistance thermometer, signal cables, and associated electronics. 

Measurements can be made at a single level for various meteorological purposes, at two or more levels for vertical temperature differences, and using special equipment (at one or more levels) for fluctuations of temperature with time applied to flux or variance measurements. 

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
