Data Version 1.30

I have updated the met tower data processing software to version 1.30.

What’s new in version 1.30?

  • Reinstated the friction velocity (ustar) to use [(mean(u’w’))^2 + (mean(v’w’))^2]^(1/4)

Data have changed. Values of ustar in version 1.29 were impacted. As these data are used extensively to help calculate other values that are relevant to turbulent fluxes, please be very cautious with using data with a version number less than 1.30

You should start to see this in data with modification dates from about 18:40 Mountain time on August 5, 2013. Over the next week I expect all of the old data will be reprocessed using this version.

If you see any issues, please report them here. Thanks!
