2 Part II: Degree Days Using Monthly Average Temperatures The following activity requires the degree-day information for your site for at least one month. WeatherLink software used with systems such as Vantage Pro2 can create a Monthly Climatological Summary, which provides the degree-day information calculated each day and totaled for the month. WeatherLink software used with systems such as Vantage Pro2 can create a graph, with the high and low temperatures for each day, so that the student can make the calculations. Normal Degree Days Heating degree days are used to estimate fuel consumption needed for heat. Heating days are calculated using daily mean temperatures (maximum temperature + minimum temperature divided by 2, rounded to the nearest whole degree). One heating degree day is accumulated for each degree that the daily mean temperature falls below the base temperature of 65 F. The daily degree days are summed to determine the monthly values, which are then averaged over the 30-year period to establish the usual number of heating degree days. Therefore, locations that have large heating degree-day values use more fuel for heating than locations with small heating degree-day values. Cooling degree days are used to estimate the amount of fuel needed for air conditioning or refrigeration. One cooling degree day is given for each degree that the daily mean temperature exceeds the base of 65 F. The daily cooling degree days are summed to determine the monthly values, which are then averaged over the 30-year period to establish the usual number of cooling degree days. There, locations that have large cooling degree-day values use more fuel for air conditioning than locations with small degree-day values. Purpose The student will compare and contrast degree heating and cooling days from their site with those from selected U.S. cities, evaluate the data given and draw conclusions by relating the data to everyday life. Materials 1. Monthly Climatological Summary for as many months as possible (up to 1 year) for your station or Monthly graph showing average temperature for each day, from which the degree heating or cooling day values can be determined (see above) or Daily or weekly graphs from which student will calculate the monthly average high and low temperatures 2. A copy of Degree-Day Data For Selected U.S. Cities 3. Student Answer Sheet or teacher-prepared answer sheet Page 2 of 10

3 Procedure 1. Give students background information concerning degree-day values and how they are calculated. Have students calculate at least one day from a sample problem. 2. Discuss the Degree-Day Data sheet with students. Again, Heating refers to the number of degrees that the daily mean temperature was below 65 F and Cooling refers to the number of degrees that the daily mean temperature was above 65 F. The values for the five cities are given for each of the months in the year. 3. Make sure that students note which month or months are available from your site. Your students will make comparisons and contrasts using data for the same months from the five cities and your site. Page 3 of 10

5 7. Would you consider your site comfortable during any part of the year? Explain. How does your data support this conclusion? 8. Knowing the average high and low temperatures for each month could be important in many occupations. Give three occupations that would benefit from having this data and explain why it would be important to them. Page 5 of 10

8 6. For the month(s) given for your site, how does your site compare to the other cities? Is your site similar or significantly different in numbers of degree days for heating or cooling from the others? 7. If you were looking for a place to live where heating and air conditioning bills might be the lowest (based on degree days), which site would you choose? Use the data given to explain your answer. 8. By using the degree days for each month, choose the site that might have the longest growing season for crops. Explain why you picked this site over the other ones. 9. By using the degree days for each month, choose the site that might have the longest growing season for crops. Explain why you picked this site over the other ones. 10. Knowing degree-day totals for these sites might affect the kinds of items available in local stores. Pick at least two sites and describe at least two items that would be needed by customers in that location based on the type of climate they appear to have. Explain why they might need these items.
