JSU Mobile Surface Meteorology: Kayak


This dataset contains the Jackson State University (JSU) Mobile Surface Meteorology Kayak data collected during the Chequamegon Heterogeneous Ecosystem Energy-balance Study Enabled by a High-density Extensive Array of Detectors (CHEESEHEAD) field project. Surface meteorology parameters were measured by sensors mounted to a sea kayak which was paddled on waters within CHEESEHEAD core domain during Intensive Observing Periods (IOPs). All data are logged at 2-s intervals. Data are primarily collected while mobile, but stationary data may also be collected for short periods. Times in descriptive data log file are rounded to nearest minute. Min/max of temperature, relative humidity, and dewpoint are summarized for each leg.
