15.12 Problem Set

  1. You have also been supplied with the same set of microclimate data for North America. Take a look at it by simply altering the variable ‘path’, which we defined right at the beginning, to wherever you decompressed the North American data set archive ‘microclim_NAm.zip’. Note you’ll have to choose a new location to extract hourly data from, i.e. change the variable ‘lon.lat’.

What are some of the major differences you see between the microclimatic environments of Australia and the USA? For example, did you need to change the limits on the axes of some of the graphs?
