 Poster no.         Explanation
 1.                 Tittle: Performance of Automatic Weather
                    Stations in Kenya
 2.                 Automatic Weather Stations: Locations
STATION NAM E    WMO No.   EUM ETSAT No.         location         Height
Mtwapa           63797     16F9D068        03˚56'S   39˚44'E      61m
Dagoretti        63741     1672A2E8        01˚18'S   36˚45'E      1795m
Kibos            63711     36D86128        00˚02'S   34˚49'E      1214m

 3.                  MTWAPA DIFERRENCES
                        MAX      MIN                 RAIN
                MEAN    -0.24    4.63                -0.62
                STD DEV 0.72     2.66                5.40

 4. & 5.            Graphical representations for the mean differences and
                    standard deviations of the parameters measured at
                    Dagoretti Corner. Note that wind direction gives a
                    high value because its units of measurements is in tens
                    (ie 10,20 30, etc.).
 6. & 7.             Graphical representations for the mean differences at
                    0600 and 1800 UTC of the parameters measured at
                    Dagoretti Corner so as to include minimum and
                    maximum temperatures respectively.
 8. & 9.            Graphical representations for the mean differences at
                    0000 and 1200 UTC of the parameters measured at
                    Dagoretti Corner so as to detect whether the
                    differences for wind speed are higher when the winds
                    are strong or weak.
 10.                 KIBOS DIFERRENCES
                               MIN                     RAIN
                MEAN          8.27                     -0.53
                STD DEV       2.50                     3.90
 11.                Conclusions; The high differences for the minimum
                    temperatures are due to the inability of the data logger
                    to determine the lowest temperature measured in 24
                    hours. Likewise it does not add up the rainfall
                    amounts in 24 hours. Rainfall is reported at the hour
                    when it occurs only.
 12.                Presently installed AWS in Kenya and their status.
