NOAA Site 10 Tower Surface, Radiation, Flux and Soils Data

Project:

Summary

Fast response water vapor measurements are made with an open-path, fast response infrared gas analyzer developed at ATDD. This sensor was used extensively for flux measurements during recent ARM and BOREAS experiments.

Standard meteorological data collected at this NOAA Site #10 includes wind speed and direction, air temperature and relative humidity, precipitation, net radiation, incoming global radiation, incoming and outgoing visible radiation, ground heat flux, and soil temperatures (at 6 depths: 2 cm, 4 cm, 8 cm, 16 cm, 32 cm, and 64 cm). The surface or "skin" temperature is also measured with an infrared temperature sensor.  See the readme documentation for details on measurements collected at this site for the CASES-97 project.  The data are provided in a single Excel file.
