Tower Thermocouple Data [Sun]



This dataset contains 5 and 20 Hz data obtained from thermocouples mounted on an instrumented tower. During CASES-99 there were 34 levels of thermocouples, 32 on the NCAR ATD main tower and 2 near the ground but slightly offset from the main tower. The 34 levels of thermocouples cover the vertical range of 0.23m to 58.1m. The air temperature observed with the thermocouples were recorded at 5 samples per second (5-Hz).
