JSU Mobile Surface Meteorology Data



This dataset contains the Jackson State University (JSU) mobile data as collected for the CHEESEHEAD (Chequamegon Heterogeneous Ecosystem Energy-balance Study Enabled by a High-density Extensive Array of Detectors) project. Surface meteorology parameters were measured by sensors mounted to an automobile which was driven on roads and trails within CHEESEHEAD core domain and surrounding region during Intensive Observing Periods (IOPs). Data are primarily collected while mobile, but stationary data may also be collected for short periods (either between mobile legs or at stops in transit). Times in descriptive data log file are rounded to nearest minute. Stops longer than 1-2 minutes are noted in Description column, along with waypoints and landmarks. Min/max of temperature, relative humidity, and dewpoint are summarized for each leg, only considering times when moving. (Maximum solar radiation includes all times.)
