BOREAS TF-02 SSA-OA TETHERSONDE METEOROLOGICAL AND OZONE DATA
Get Data

Summary:

Members of the BOREAS TF-02 team collected meteorological and ozone measurements from instruments mounted below a tethered balloon. These data were collected at the SSA-OA site to extend meteorological and ozone measurements made from the flux tower to heights of 300 m. The tethersonde operated during the fall of 1993 and the spring, summer, and fall of 1994.
