Description:Central facility tower crop field (winter wheat, corn, soy, alfalfa). The site also has continuous measurements of precise mixing ratios of CO2, CH4, CO, N2O, and isotopic ratio of 13CO2. In addition to 4 m system, there are sonic anemometers at 25 m and 60 m.
Acknowledgments:This research was supported by the Office of Biological and Environmental Research of the US Department of Energy under contract No. DE-AC02-05CH11231 as part of the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Program (ARM)
