This paper describes meteorological measurements collected since 1997 at 16 ICP Forests Level II sites across the complex topography of Switzerland, both under the canopy and in the open-field nearby. The data offer detailed comparisons of deciduous, mixed, and coniferous forest microclimatic conditions with standard meteorological conditions in the open-field. Contrary to the open-field stations, those under the canopy do not fully correspond to the WMO criteria. Dataset access at https://doi.pangaea.de/10.1594/PANGAEA.868390.
