Interpreting the Results

The monthly Report Table (shown below) shows the daily average for each of the selected measurements, for the month of March (2015). The Summary Table at the bottom reports the mean, maximum, and minimum values for the respective column. For example, we see that the lowest recorded temperature occurred on the 4th day of March. Further, the 25th day of March had the highest daily average wind speed.

Creating a Yearly Summary Report

Yearly reports show the daily average for a measurement, for each day of the month of the selected year. The summarizing section at the bottom displays the mean, maximum value, minimum value, and the peak 5-minute (or, peak instantaneous) value for the respective month.

You can use one measurement for every yearly report.

  7. Click .

    A separate tab will open in your web browser, from which your report table will appear.

    Note: If the report table does not appear, you may have pop-ups blocked. Please check your web-browser settings and ensure pop-ups from FlowWorks are enabled.

Interpreting the Results

The monthly peak 5-minute value is indicated in the table using a 'PK' abbreviation, next to the corresponding daily average value. The 'PK' indicates that the peak instantaneous value occurred on this day. In the example below, we see that January 28th had a daily average temperature of 9.8°C; the ‘PK” next to it implies that the peak instantaneous value for January occurred on this day. The Peak 5-minute value for the month can be found at the very bottom of the summarizing section of the table.

A '+' sign next to the peak 5-minute value tells us that the temperature reached the peak 5-minute value more than once that particular day. In the example below, we see that in May the peak 5-minute value of 29.65 occurred more than once on May 2nd.
