Summary
Abstract: This data set contains meteorological observations at 36 sites throughout the Small Regional Study Area (SRSA) of the NASA Cold Land Processes Field Experiment (CLPX) in Colorado, USA. Identical meteorological towers were located close to the four corners of nine 1 km x 1 km Intensive Study Areas (ISAs). At each site, measurements of air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and wind ... View entire text

Quality The available data product has been processed to a Level 1 standard. This means that raw data (Level 0 data), which were downloaded on approximately a 6-month basis, have been concatenated into one continuous file per meteorological tower. Data have then been filtered twice for faulty values. The first filtering process was done manually to recognize instrument, wiring, or programming problems. The second filtering process was done computationally to remove blank values or any faulty values that fall outside of acceptable boundaries for each instrument (see table below for instrument list). Faulty data and missing data were replaced with a default value of 8999.
