R/V Ron Brown Near-Surface Mean Meteorology and Fluxes (30-min) - Leg 1 and Leg 2



This dataset contains computations of bulk meteorological variables and fluxes derived the ETL system based on preliminary analysis done during Leg 1 and Leg 2 of the EPIC2001 cruise and the PACS TAO maintenance cruise that followed. Most quantities given are subject to future modification based on accounting for other sources of data and revised calibrations. No direct turbulent flux calculations are included in this present data.
