Group: Summary

   These data sets include Surface Meteorological Data (D100, D105, Tanggula 
   Pass, Wetland), Ground Temperature (D100, D105, Tanggula Pass, Wetland), Soil 
   Moisture Data, Evaporation, and soil physical properties. These data sets 
   include maximum, mean, minimum air temperature, wind speed, relative humidity, 
   global solar radiation, reflected solar radiation, atmospheric pressure, 
   ground surface and soil temperature, soil moisture content, and soil physical 
   properties. Numerous papers have been published by the investigators using 
   these data sets; references are not available as of March 1998. These data are 
   presented on the CAPS Version 1.0 CD-ROM, June 1998.
