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 data set is considered to provide the “best estimate” of the diurnal cycle of fluxes.
