BAO: Boulder Atmospheric Observatory Tower Study


The Boulder Atmospheric Observatory Tower Study (BAO) evaluated the effects of horizontal inhomogeneities in the earth’s surface on the Boulder Atmospheric Observatory tower measurements. Spatially averaged airplane measurements were compared to time averaged tower measurements to determine the representativeness of the tower location. Both mean and turbulent quantities were compared.
