Temperature and Dew Point
There are 3 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Ortaca.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Ortaca according to the International Standard Atmosphere , and by the relative change present in the MERRA-2 satellite-era reanalysis between the two locations.
The estimated value at Ortaca is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Ortaca and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Dalaman Airport (93%, 14 kilometers, south); Bodrum-Imsik Airport (4.9%, 103 kilometers, west); and Denizli Çardak Airport (2.6%, 134 kilometers, northeast).
