Meteorological Institute Misreported Temperature for Years.

The Royal Dutch Meteorological Institute KNMI has during many years reported incorrect temperatures from its main weather station in De Bilt. The measurements were until recently half a degree to high. This became evident when, without publicizing it, the station was somewhat relocated and temperatures published became more in line with those of a private station. “Scientists have known for a long time that the KNMI’s location was not representative.” said Prof. Bert Holtslag who teaches meteorology at Wageningen University. The KNMI refuses to comment.
