Meteorological data were collected in an open and forested site for one month. Air temperature, relative humidity, windspeed and the solar radiation were recorded over 30 minute, 30 minute, 10 minute and 10 minute intervals, respectively. Daily averages were calculated by averaging the data recorded over these shorter time intervals. Regression analyses indicated that the relationships between the open and forested sites for these variables were independent of the averaging intervals used here. The implications of this result are discussed.
