Surface Meteorology at Kougarok Site Station, Seward Peninsula, Alaska, Ongoing from 2017Entry ID: NGEE_Surface_Meteorology_Kougarok_1
Abstract: Meteorological data are currently being collected at one location at the top of the Kougarok hill, Seward Peninsula. This December 18, 2017 release includes data for: Teller Creek Station near TL_BSV (TELLER BOTTOM METEOROLOGICAL STATION). Station is located in the lower watershed in a tussock / willow transition zone and co-located with continuous snow depth measurements and subsurface ... measurements.Teller Creek Station near TL_IS_5 (TELLER TOP METEOROLOGICAL STATION); Station is located in the upper watershed and co-located with continuous snow depth measurements and subsurface measurements. Two types of data products are provided for these stations: First, meteorological and site characterization data grouped by sensor/measurement type (e.g., radiation or soil pit temperature and moisture). These are *.csv files; Second, a Data Visualization tool is provided for quick visualization of measurements over time at a station. Download the *_Visualizer.zip file, extract, and click on the 'index.html' file; Data values are the same in both products.
Purpose: These data are being collected to better understand the energy dynamics above the active layer and permafrost. They complement in-situ snow and soil measurements at this location. The data could also be used as supporting measurements for other research and modeling activities.

Quality LOGICAL CONSISTENCY REPORT: Data are considered of good quality in the context of the information presented in the abstract. Users are advised to read the rest of the metadata record carefully for additional details.
COMPLETENESS REPORT: Data are considered complete in the context of the information presented in the abstract. Users are advised to read the rest of the metadata record ... carefully for additional details.
Any data listed in the metadata but not available in the data set is still under quality review (e.g. some subsurface measurements which need a longer initial period of review to establish quality)
PROCESS DESCRIPTION: Data is passed to data processing server
PROCESS DESCRIPTION: Automated QA/QC is applied to the new data (internal tool following industry guidelines).
PROCESS DESCRIPTION: Site intercomparison checks
PROCESS DESCRIPTION: Manual observation of data for anomalies that passed the automated qc system.
