RICO 5 minute ISFS data, tilt corrected

Summary

This dataset contains 5 minute ISFS data, collected during the Rain in Cumulus over the Ocean (RICO) field project between 3 December 2004 and 25 January 2005. These data are in NetCDF format, and have been tilt corrected. The data have been quality control processed using the procedures described in the attached document and related webpage "RICO ISFF Data Report."

The Integrated Surface Flux System (ISFS) is designed to study exchange processes between the atmosphere and Earth's surface. This includes the direct measurement of fluxes of momentum, sensible and latent heat, trace gases, and radiation as well as standard atmospheric and surface variables. With multiple sensors and data systems, measurements of horizontal and vertical gradients also can be made.
