No, not CRS stuffing.
But, an odd weather station in Adana, Turkey.
This is the first one I’ve ever seen where the put wind instruments on the roof of the Stevenson Screen:
Needs a paint job, don’t you think? Nice siting too.
WUWT Reader Jeff writes in with:
I live in Ankara, but was in Adana Turkey this past week and came across a weather-beaten meteorological station at the local university. I took a photo If you like, I’ll send it to you for your collection.
There is a GHCN station listed in Adana, Turkey, though the lat/lon is coarse.
64917350000 ADANA/INCIRLI 37.00 35.42
That may very well be Adana Incirlik AFB.
GISTEMP has a station in Andara Incirlik, but says it stopped reporting in 1990. Of course that doesn’t mean anything, as we’ve seen, CLIMAT reporting is pretty weak in other countries, even though the live data is available on the net at Weather Underground
And there are three active stations listed in NCDC’s MMS metadatabase:
Though none of the lat/lons put it anywhere close to Çukurova University, where I think it might be located. See the sign hanging on the weather station, it says Ç. U. with what appears to be an admonishment of “faculty only”.
I could write to Jeff again and get specifics, but I thought this might be a fun Turkey Day snipe hunt for readers to see if they can find it. Maybe somebody who can translate the writing can divine some clues enough to locate it on Google Earth. Here’s a head start for you:
37.057857°, 35.360572° is about the center of Çukurova University area. And their website is: http://www.cu.edu.tr/Content/Asp/English/index.asp
Chasing weather stations beats arguing with the visiting relatives, right?
