Data from: Development of an optical flow through detector for bubbles, crystals and particles within oils

    The characterization of bubbles or particles in an oil poses some unique challenges. In contrast to water solutions, the use of electrochemical detection approaches is more difficult in an oil. However, optical sensing systems have considerable potential in this area. Here we use a flow through channel approach and monitor the light propagation through this structure in an optical transmission sensor arrangement (OTS).

    Long-Term Agricultural Research (LTAR) network - Meteorological Collection

      The LTAR network maintains stations for standard meteorological measurements including, generally, air temperature and humidity, shortwave (solar) irradiance, longwave (thermal) radiation, wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, and precipitation. Many sites also have extensive comparable legacy datasets.
