VAP : Best-Estimate Fluxes From EBBR Measurements and Bulk Aerodynamics Calculations (BAEBBR)

Instrument Categories
Derived Quantities and Models

The BAEBBR VAP calculates the bulk aerodynamic latent and sensible heat fluxes from Energy Balance Bowen Ratio (EBBR) Station meteorological measurements and uses these in place of the EBBR flux measurements when the Bowen ratio is between -1.6 and -0.45. The resultant dataset is considered to provide the "best estimate" of the diurnal cycle of fluxes.
