Subset of turbulent energy fluxes, meteorology and soil physics observations collected at eddy covariance sites in southeast England, June 2019

This dataset contains time series observations of surface-atmosphere exchanges of sensible heat (H) and latent heat (LE) and momentum (τ) measured at UKCEH eddy covariance flux observation sites during summer 2019. The dataset includes ancillary weather and soil physics observations made at each site.
Eddy covariance (EC) and micrometeorological observations were collected using open-path eddy covariance systems. Flux, meteorological and soil physics observations were collected and processed using harmonised protocols across all sites.

This work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council award number NE/R016429/1 as part of the UK-SCAPE programme delivering National Capability.

Provenance & quality

Turbulent flux densities were calculated from the raw EC data using the EddyPRO Flux Calculation Software Version 6.1. Quality Control of EC data involved removal of statistical outliers and statistical tests to remove data of poor technical quality. Data gaps in EC data (NEE, LE, H) were filled using the Marginal Distribution Sampling approach.
