NOAA/ESRL/PSD NAME Supersite (Obispo) Radiative Flux, Ground Heat Flux, Soil Temperature and Wetness Data


This dataset contains radiative fluxes, ground heat fluxes, soil temperatures, and soil wetness fractions derived by the Physical Sciences Division of the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory. This dataset consists of a single file of comma delimited, ASCII data where each line contains 13 data fields posted every 1 minute. DISCLAIMER: Solar Irradiance measured using Eppley Precision Spectral Pyranomters contain thermal offset errors. This low bias can be as large as 14.0 W/m^s during daytime. Irradiance was calculated from the raw thermopile. NOAA/ESRL/PSD has NOT zeroed negative irradiance values returned by the PSP's at night. Users should zero all negative irradiance values before computing net irradiance.
