Registered Location

Latitude: 3° 51' 0" N (deg min sec), 3.8500° (decimal), 0351.00N (LORAN)
Longitude: 155° 1' 0" E (deg min sec), 155.0167° (decimal), 15501.00E (LORAN)
Elevation: 4 metres (13 feet)
Location: Nukuoro Atoll, P, Micronesia

The elevation does not correspond with the estimated elevation (-9999 metres (-32805 feet) -- source Geonames) at that point. Either the location or the elevation (or both) are almost certain to be incorrect. Please use the 'send the updated information' link below to update the location or elevation.

The site coordinates appear to be of low precision, and the station may be anywhere within the marked area. Clicking within the map area (or you can drag the '91425' marker) will display the latitude/longitude of that point.

If the displayed location (or elevation) of the weather observing location is incorrect, please drag the marker to the right location (or click in the right location), and then send the updated information. Please note that we are trying to spot either the Stevenson Screen (or equivalent) or the location where the barometric readings are taken.

The best way to get elevation is to consult a topographic map. Make sure that you know whether the contours are marked in feet or metres. Note that handheld GPS receivers do not provide readings of elevation accurate to better than 10-20 metres (technical discussion). If you do not have access to a topographic map, then a GPS receiver is acceptable, but make sure that it is operating in 3D mode and let it average the position for at least five minutes.

For more information on reading maps, please see the Topo Map Reading Guide -- in particular it discusses how to read contours.

The location information for this site was gathered from 4 data sources. The possible locations for this site are up to 3.3 miles away. This makes it possible that the location chosen is incorrect. The source which most closely matches the consensus is chosen. Many of these sources only report the location to the nearest minute (or hundredth of degree). This can lead to the marker being placed noticeably incorrectly. Please see Discussion of Location Errors for more information. Show location history.

There are no photographs of the station. If you have pictures of this location, then please email them to

Over the last 182 days, no data was seen on the following dates: 2021-06-04 to 2021-06-05, 2021-06-07 to 2021-06-09, 2021-06-13 to 2021-06-16, 2021-06-18 to 2021-06-21, 2021-06-23, 2021-06-25 to 2021-06-26, 2021-06-28, 2021-06-30, 2021-07-02 to 2021-07-03, 2021-07-05, 2021-07-07, 2021-07-09 to 2021-07-26, 2021-07-28 to 2021-07-29, 2021-07-31 to 2021-08-05, 2021-08-07 to 2021-09-16, 2021-09-18 to 2021-10-05, 2021-10-08 to 2021-11-06, 2021-11-08 to 2021-11-09, 2021-11-11, 2021-11-13 to 2021-11-18, 2021-11-20 to 2021-11-24, 2021-11-26 to 2021-11-28, 2021-12-01.

All the means and standard deviations shown below are from the last 182 days. Change analysis period to Last 3 days  Last 7 days  Last 14 days  Last 4 weeks  Last 8 weeks  Last 13 weeks  Last 39 weeks  Last 52 weeks  

By default, the longer analysis periods display graphs that show the long term performance of this station. The graphs show the mean error over time, and include error bars which are one standard deviation long. This provides an easy way to see if there are any underlying trends in the data. Note that a 'step' in your data does not (necessarily) mean that something happened to your station. It could mean that another station came online in the local area, and they are changing the analysis.

The analysis is performed by MADIS. This web page just provides visualization of the data that MADIS produces. There are a number of very knowledgeable people who participate on the WXQC Mailing List who do understand exactly how MADIS works and can resolve issues when the analysis seems to be broken. However, in most cases, the station readings are at fault, or the software that is transmitting the data to CWOP. Please check those paths first.

You can also see how this station compares with other stations.

The inconsistency noted above in your location information means that the analyzed readings for your location may be incorrect. For example, if your location is incorrect, then the analysis values will be for a location other than your station. This will give different analysis results, probably leading to errors being shown below. If the elevation is incorrect, then the comparison of temperature readings will be in error.

A recently received weather report from this station was


Average barometer error: 0.0 milliBars
Error standard deviation: 0.0 milliBars

MADIS rating 100% QC OK

These values are within range, so your sensor is probably calibrated correctly.

Error standard deviation-

NOTE: If the error above is POSITIVE, then it means that the analysis temperature is HIGHER than the reported temperature. This means that your sensor is reading COLDER than expected.

Not enough data has been received to perform a day / night analysis to check for various types of shielding problems. Please wait a few days, and then try again.

NOTE: If the error above is POSITIVE, then it means that the analysis temperature is HIGHER than the reported temperature. This means that your sensor is reading COLDER than expected.

Wind Vector

The wind vector is the average wind over the relevant period. Note that if the wind blows North for half the time at 2 knots, and then blows South for the other half of the time at 2 knots, then the result is zero -- i.e. North wind and South wind will cancel out. Over time, the direction of the wind and of the analysis should match pretty well. If the lengths of the vector are different, then it could mean either that your anemometer reads high or low, or that you are in a more shielded or more open space.

Neighboring Stations

This is a list of stations that are close to this station. Note that this is not the list of stations that are used in the data analysis. That list of stations is known only to MADIS. You can see all the stations at MADIS Data Display. Your station should be in the middle of the display. If you think that the analysis is incorrect, then maybe one of the close stations has failed.

You can look at those for comparison purposes. The average difference between your station and each station below is listed as well. This may allow you to detect local stations which are erroneous. You can also use these numbers to adjust your instruments -- especially if a number of ASOS stations have similar differences to your station. Also, try increasing the analysis period to more than the default 28 days. The difference is only given if both stations report reasonably often during each day. Some stations only report every 6 hours, and this makes the average of less interest. In this case, the average is not displayed. The values reported are the differences between this station and the neighboring station. I.e. if the difference is positive, then this station is reading higher than the neighboring station. Since this station has not been reporting continuously during the analysis period (it missed 155 days out of 182), the offsets below may not be accurate.

The sites marked above thus did not report continuously during the analysis period, so the offsets may (probably will) not be accurate.

Quality Control Notes

This page reports on the quality control checks performed by MADIS. The green check mark and red cross are chosen based on the average performance during the analysis period (which is selectable above). The red cross can appear even if MADIS reports that all observations pass the MADIS QC checks.

The 'MADIS rating' reports on the percentage of observations that pass the MADIS checks. You should aim for two thumbs up!
