Annual Means of Stratus Reference Data Set

Annual mean averages are computed for years when a full calendar year of data is available, and are averages over the respective calendar year. Figure 1 provides a visual summary, showing air temperature and humidity at 2m and wind speed at 10m, extrapoated using the COARE bulk formulae.

For information on data sources and variable descriptions, please see AnnualMeans.html, or mouse-over fields in tables, below.

Surface Flux Means

Surface fluxes are calculated with the COARE 3.5 Bulk Flux algorithm (Fairall et al., 1996, 2003, Edson et al., 2012)

Wind, air temperature and specific hmidity are adjusted to standard heights
