In this way, data distributions regarding temperature, RH and BGHT index in the morning and afternoon have not obeyed a normal distribution (Figure 2).
The semivariogram fit enabled to estimate values for non-sampled locations regarding temperature, RH and BGHT index by ordinary kriging, which estimates spatial distributed variables through moving average values.
2003) reported that evaporative cooling system improved thermal conditions inside the facilities for finishing swine, by reducing BGHT index, as well as providing better feed conversion and greater weight gain of animals.
BGHT index values characterized as thermoneutral environment by Orlando et al.
The spatialization of temperature, RH and BGHT index provided more detailed information on the operation of the evaporative cooler, although this equipment does not provide thermal comfort for swine.
