Study Information

Micrometeorological and soil data were used to estimate daily, monthly, and annual ET rates at two instrumented sites on Rainier Mesa, January 1, 2002 – August 23, 2005. One site is in an area of brush-dominated vegetation and a second site is in an area dominated by pinyon pines and juniper trees. Micrometeorological, soil, and ET data are presented in this report in Microsoft Excel workbooks. These data include air temperature, vapor pressure, and dew point temperature at two heights; average relative humidity; net radiation; wind speed and direction; soil temperature; 20-minute temperature change in soil; soil heat flux; and ET rates. Data for both sites are presented as 20-minute averages. Volumetric soil-water content and matric water potential are presented as 1-hour intervals and daily averages.
