dc.description.abstractSince 1984, researchers at the Station d’Études des Gorilles and Chimpanzées (SEGC) in Lopé National Park, Gabon have recorded weather data (temperature, rainfall and humidity) using various types of equipment at two locations: a savanna site (the research station; 11.605E, -0.201N) and a forest site (800m from the research station and approximately 10m from the savanna/forest edge; 11.605E, -0.206N). More recently solar radiation and wind speed (as well as temperature, rainfall and humidity) have been recorded using automatic weather stations (2012-2016). Analyses of these data can be found in the accompanying peer-reviewed paper:
