Group: Summary

   This data set presents micrometeorological data from the Flux over Snow 
   Surfaces (FLOSS) project carried out during the Cold Land Processes Field 
   Experiment (CLPX) at North Park, Colorado, USA. The project measured air 
   temperature, air pressure, relative humidity, wind speed, water vapor flux, 
   carbon dioxide, longwave and shortwave radiation, soil temperature, soil 
   moisture, soil heat flux, precipitation, snow depth, and eddy correlation. 
   Measurements were collected between 1 Dec 2001 and 27 March 2002, and between 
   20 November 2002 and 24 March 2003. Sensors were installed on 2-meter and 
   4-meter platforms.
