Short-term monthly mean temperature (Tm) and short-term daily mean temperature (Td) are preferred for some ecosystem studies. Here, the AA. report the progress of modeling Tm and Td (based on the previous work on long-term monthly mean temperature) supported by climatologically aided interpolation (CAI) over the mountainous Yellowstone National Park. Data from 12 months (Jan-Dec 2008) and 12 dates (25Jan-Dec 2008) were used to demonstrate the approach. The 4 factors of elevation, seasonal change of lapse rate, temperature difference caused by variation in solar radiation, and preexiting climatology surface for the CAI approach were considered.
