Group: Summary

   This data set includes two sets of soil temperature profiles, two sets of soil 
   moisture profiles, two sets of soil heat flux profiles (in dense pine and open 
   pine areas), and one set of a snow temperature profile, air temperature, and 
   relative humidity measurements. Measurements were made at the Local Scale 
   Observation Site (LSOS) of the Cold Land Processes Field Experiment (CLPX) in 
   northern Colorado. The LSOS is a 100 m x 100 m study site located within the 
   Fraser Intensive Study Area (ISA). The study area has flat topography with a 
   uniform pine forest, a discontinuous pine forest, and a small clearing. Data 
   were collected between  6 November 2002 and 29 May 2003. These data were 
   primarily collected to support the University of Michigan microwave 
   radiometric observations acquired at the same site (to be published in early 
   2004).
