Deployment of the NCAR/EOL TRAnsect Measurement (TRAM) system between the CU Ameriflux tower and the USGS tower.  This track was about 340m long, with 25 turns supported by 15 towers, including the CU "undercanopy" tower.  Additional intensive data were collected by CU to document light (PAR) interception by the canopy, tree growth, and soil respiration in 3 subplots near the TRAM track.
