Description

The LBA-Ecology CD-07 team collected and processed GOES-8 imager data over the LBA region to characterize the incoming radiation and precipitation rates at regional scales. This data set contains surface down-welling solar radiation, photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) and infrared radiation, as well as precipitation rates at 8x8-km and half-hourly resolutions. The data cover the time periods: 01Mar99-30Apr99 and 01Sep99-31Oct99. The data missing from the temporal series was filled using interpolation to create a continuous sequence of data for carbon modeling studies.
