Barrow Area Remote Sensing- MET Data


This dataset includes meteorology data from 3 towers:
BE North (BEN)
BE Central (BEC)
BE South (BES)

Met data are contained in several files, one file per location per year. Files are named:
where "X" is N, C, or S; and "YYYY" is the data year.

Column names are included as first line in each file. For each tower, column names are explained in detail, including measurement units, in a file named:
where "X" is N, C, or S.
