DescriptionThis paper reports air and soil temperature data from 10 sites in Mount Rainier National Park in Washington State for 2- to 5-year periods. Data provided are monthly summaries for day and night mean air temperatures, mean minimum and maximum air temperatures, absolute minimum and maximum air temperatures, range of air temperatures, mean soil temperature, and absolute minimum and maximum soil temperatures. A temperature growth index has also been calculated. Temperature lapse rates are given for one major drainage, Nisqually. The objective is to provide these data for the use of managers, field scientists, and modelers.
