Eddy covariance (EC) observations of surface-atmosphere exchanges of sensible heat and latent heat, momentum and net ecosystem carbon dioxide exchange were measured at thirty minute resolution at three Land Surface Stations in India.
The dataset includes ancillary weather and soil physics observations, as well as variables describing atmospheric turbulence and the quality of the turbulent flux observations. Meteorological observations include: the net radiation and its incoming and outgoing short- and long-wave components, air temperature, barometric pressure, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, and rainfall. Soil physics observations include: Soil heat fluxes, soil temperatures and soil volumetric water content.
Observations were collected under the Interaction of Convective Organization and Monsoon Precipitation, Atmosphere, Surface and Sea (INCOMPASS) Project between January 2016 and January 2018.

EC, weather and soil physics observations were collected using identical instrumentation at all three INCOMPASS Land Surface Stations. Quality Control of EC data involved removal of statistical outliers and tests that theoretical requirements for the successful application of the EC technique were not violated significantly. Quality control (QC) of meteorological variables included range checking and visual checks for spikes, dropouts and other clearly erroneous values.
