Data were provided by the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest research program, funded by the National Science Foundation's Long-Term Ecological Research Program (DEB 2025755), US Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station, and Oregon State University.
While substantial efforts are made to ensure the accuracy of data and documentation, complete accuracy of data sets cannot be guaranteed. All data are made available "as is". The Andrews LTER shall not be liable for damages resulting from any use or misinterpretation of data sets.
The data in this set is streaming data from meteorological instruments placed on a 41 meter tower at the base of watershed 1 in the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest. Sensors are placed at several heights ranging from 4.2 to 38 meters and have been collecting streaming data at several intervals ranging from 10 Hz for sonic anemometer data to once every ten minutes for soil efflux chambers. Data has been collected since 2005, however, gaps in certain sensor data are present depending on whether or not certain sensors were deployed. Parameters measured include air temperature (degrees C), relative humidity (% change in humidity since previous remeasurement), atmospheric carbon dioxide (per mil), wind speed and direction (k/h and degrees azimuth), net radiation (mJ/square meter) and photosynthetically active radiation(micromoles per square meter). Data collection is continuous, and is also sourced in the FEEL Database. The primary species on WS1 are PSME and TSHE. Collection instruments include sonic anemometers, wind flags, open-path infrared gas analyzers, Picarro isotopic measurements (water, carbon dioxide, methane), pyranometers, barometers, thermistors, soil moisture reflectometers, long-term soil efflux chambers, radiometers, and rain gauges.
