An ISS (Integrated Sounding System) was deployed to northern Wisconsin for the CHEESEHEAD campaign for 5 months in 2019. The ISS was located at 45.9458°N, 90.2940°W on a field approx 1 mile west of the WLEF tall tower where a variety of instruments from other groups was deployed. 17 ISFS flux towers were deployed in the surrounding forest.
The ISS instruments include:
|Radar Wind Profiler||NCAR/EOL 449 MHz Modular Wind Profiler|
|Soundings||Vaisala MW41 / RS41 radiosondes (172)|
Gill Wind Observer (2D sonic) at 10m
|GPS Integrated Water Vapor||Trimble NetR8 with Vaisala WXT at 2m|
Moonglow Technologies All Sky Cam ASC-N1
The facility request for CHEESEHEAD was lead by Ankur Desai of the University of Wisconsin. The radiosondes were jointly supplied by the LAOF deployment pool and by a University of Wisconsin SPARC proposal lead by Erik Olson and Tim Wagner.
The ISS site also hosted a Montana State University surface energy balance station with 3 m flux tripod and a NOAA / ERSL SURFRAD solar radiation monitoring system.
