Temperature and Dew Point
There are 3 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Kovdor.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Kovdor 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 Kovdor is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, in addition to a contribution from the MERRA-2 reconstruction, corrected for the difference between the reference elevation of the MERRA-2 grid cell and the elevation of Kovdor.
The station weights are proportional to the inverse of the distance between Kovdor and a given station.
The weight assigned to the MERRA-2 value depends on the distance from Kovdor to the nearest station, increasing from 0% at 150 kilometers to 100% at 200 kilometers. In this case, the MERRA-2 weight is 23%.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Murmansk Airport (26%, 165 kilometers, northeast); Sodankylä Airfield (26%, 166 kilometers, west); and Ivalo Airport (25%, 172 kilometers, northwest).
