sebs: Surface Energy Balance System

The Surface Energy Balance System (SEBS) consists of upwelling and downwelling solar and infrared radiometers within one net radiometer, a wetness sensor, and soil measurements of temperature, moisture, and soil heat flow.

The SEBS measurements allow the comparison of ECOR sensible and latent heat fluxes with the available energy (surface energy balance) as determined from the SEBS, and provide information on wetting of the sensors for data-quality purposes.
