This dataset contains the daily averaged values of air temperature (Tair in deg C), air pressure (Pair in hPa), net radiation (Rn in W m-2), wind speed (WS in m s-1), vapour pressure deficit (VPD in hPa), transpiration (T in W m-2) and evaporation (E in W m-2), daily total rainfall (Pn in mm) at these two sites measured using micrometeorological tower-based sensors. It also contains the monthly averaged soil salinity (ST in ppt) measurement at the Pichavaram mangrove.
