New ECOR Systems (TWP, NSA) and Surface Energy Balance Systems

David Cook Argonne National Laboratory

Category: Instruments

ECOR (eddy correlation) systems are being added to the Tropical Western Pacific (TWP) and North Slope of Alaska (NSA) sites of the ARM Climate Research Facility in order to provide surface-to-air exchange measurements of heat, water vapor, and carbon dioxide. Furthermore, all ECOR systems, including those already installed at the ARM Southern Great Plains (SGP) site and in the ARM Mobile Facilities (AMF1, AMF2), will be supplemented with a new instrument system that will allow the surface energy balance to be estimated. This poster shows photos of some of the potential ECOR installation sites at TWP and NSA and provides information on the new surface energy balance system.

This poster will be displayed at ASR Science Team Meeting.
