I'm looking at GHCN and getting back to the fractional Laplacian texture-shaded terrain elevation map (https://fasiha.github.io/post/texshade/) because my family needs a proper app for teaching and exploring and writing about geography!
My first project that I'm seriously thinking about monetization from the get-go. How scary!
There's a weather station at Yerbent, a village in the Karakum Desert out in Turkmenistan, and the number of daily highs and lows it records varies—I'd need to dig a bit to see if it's an automated system or manual, or if the drop-outs happen due to communication or power outages, or what.
But what's confuzzled me is, some days a temperature high is registered but not a low, and other days a low is registered but not a high.
Most months have several days where only one is reported. 🤷♂️?
