Group: 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).
