data window

The finite time or space interval during which measurements are obtained.

Meteorological data can be viewed as occurring along an infinite time line from the distant past into the distant future, but measurements for a limited time, for example, during a field experiment or period of routine weather observations, provide only a window on a portion of the time line.
