Entry ID

GGD227

Summary

This data set consists of radiobrightness data at 20-minute intervals over grassland prairie in South Dakota, USA, during the fall and winter of 1992-93. Supporting measurements include air temperature, soil temperature and moisture content, snow depth, heat flow, and infrared brightness. This data set is part of the Radiobrightness Energy Balance Experiment (REBEX-1).
