ARCHIVED Nova Scotia Groundwater Observation Well Temperature Data

<b>ARCHIVED</b> Recommendation is to discontinue the “Nova Scotia Groundwater Observation Well Temperature Data”. This is for scientific / technical reasons. The data was never designed to be collected as a dataset on its own, but is used by sensors to create a correction facter for other data (groundwater levels). Developments in academic research show that the type of water wells we monitor for groundwater levels do not have the correct design for measuring temperature, with issues that include the potential within wells for thermal convection cells that cause groundwater temperature readings to fluctuate inconsistently.

Groundwater temperatures have been recorded from the NS Groundwater Observation Well monitoring network since 2003. This temperature data is presented as daily averages and may be influenced by a number of variable factors including air temperature, well construction, depth, geology and groundwater conditions.
