Summary
Abstract: The Aeronomy Lab of NOAA/ERL maintains the Flatland Atmospheric
Observatory (FAO) at the Bondville Field station of the University of
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The region is one of the flattest in
the continental United States, and is far removed from mountains,
particularly in the direction of the prevailing wind. In the
mountains, orographic effects dominate other dynamical effects. The
