Data Version 1.32

Postby Andy.Clifton » Fri Dec 06, 2013 6:20 pm

I have updated the met tower data processing software to version 1.32.

What's new in version 1.32?
- Veer is redefined to be the mean direction gradient between two heights
- The covariance of u' & w', and w' & T' from the sonic anemometers is now recorded
- Richardson number is calculated using the true gradient of wind speed or temperature with height, rather than the mean of all of the local gradients

Data have changed. This update that will allow me to better test the quality of the sonic data.

You should start to see this in data with modification dates from about 19:00 Mountain time on December 6, 2013. I will be reprocessing old data over the next few days. If you see any issues, please report them here. Thanks!
