GCIP/NESOB-97 Surface: Sensible, Latent and Ground Heat Flux Composite

Summary

NOAA/ATDD Little Washita flux data, ARM SGP EBBR data, and ARM SGP ECOR data have been composited together into one dataset. This dataset is composed of half hourly observations of latent heat flux, sensible heat flux, and the corrected soil heat flux from 5 separate sensors. These data were not quality controlled by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research/Joint Office for Science Support (UCAR/JOSS). However, included for checking the validity of the data are the Bowen ratio, the home_15 (Exchange Mechanism Position Indicator 1 to 15 mins) and the home_30 (Exchange Mechanism Position Indicator 15 to 30 mins). If values for home_15 or home_30 are corrupted, the latent and sensible flux fields should be considered suspect.
