Description

The data was obtained, by ETA project, with a sampling frequency of 0.1 Hz and stored as 5-min averages. Missing value: -9999.0 The local time (LT) was used as the standard time (LT = UTC - 4). Radiation fluxes were considered positive when directed upward towards the atmosphere. Air temperature (Temp) and air relative humidity (RH) Height: 2.2 m. Equipment: CS215 Campbell Sci. Inc.
