Princeton Energy and Climate Scholars (PECS): An introduction to the eddy-covariance method
Speaker: Dan Li
The eddy-covariance system operated by the Hydrometeorology group at Princeton is located at the Broadmead site (close to the football stadium). It has a CSAT 3D sonic anemometer and a LICOR-7500, which measure the wind speed, air temperature, water vapor and CO2 concentration at high frequencies(~10-20Hz). Other variables measured at the site include four-component surface radiation, soil moisture, rainfall and so on.
