ARM/GCIP Near-Surface Observation Data Set - 1996
The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM)/Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX) Continental-scale International Project (GCIP) Near-Surface Observation Data Set - 1996 (NESOB-96) took place around the ARM - Cloud and Radiation Testbed (ARM/CART) site (34 to 39 Deg North Latitude and 94.5 to 100.5 Degrees West Longitude) during the period beginning 1 April and ending 30 September 1996. This data set includes data covering the vertical dimension from 3000 m above the surface to two meters below the surface. The data set will include surface meteorological data, precipitation, radiation, heat and momentum fluxes, soil temperature and moisture, and vertical profiles of temperature, moisture, and winds. The measurements will be from a wide variety of instrumentation and sources.
This special data set is being compiled to make a data set available that is needed for land surface and boundary layer studies and modeling. It is also used as a test of the methods of putting together such a data set for the later full implementation of NESOB.
