Ag Data Commons migration begins October 18, 2023

The Ag Data Commons is migrating to a new platform – an institutional portal on Figshare. Starting October 18 the current system will be available for search and download only. Submissions will resume after the launch of our portal on Figshare in November. Stay tuned for details!

SGP97 Upper Air: DOE ARM 50 MHz Profiler Winds

    This data set covers the period from 1 June through 31 July 1997. The SGP97 domain is approximately 97W to 99W longitude and 34.5N to 37N latitude. These data are in their original NetCDF format. The 50-MHz Radar Wind Profiler/RASS (RWP50) measures wind profiles from (nominally) 2 to 12 km and virtual temperature profiles from 2 to 4 km.

    SGP97 Upper Air: DOE ARM 915 MHz Profiler RASS

      This data set contains hourly average profiles of wind speed and direction, u and v wind components (from the Radar Wind Profiler), and virtual temperature (from the RASS [Radio Acoustic Sounding System]).

      SGP97 Upper Air: DOE ARM 50 MHz Profiler RASS

        This data set covers the period from 1 June through 31 July 1997. The SGP97 domain is approximately 97W to 99W longitude and 34.5N to 37N latitude. These data are in their original NetCDF format. The 50-MHz Radar Wind Profiler/RASS (RWP50) measures wind profiles from (nominally) 2 to 12 km and virtual temperature profiles from 2 to 4 km. It operates by transmitting electromagnetic energy into the atmosphere and measuring the strength and frequency of backscattered energy.

        SGP97 Surface: NOAA/ATDD Little Washita, Oklahoma Long Term Flux Site

        NAL Geospatial Catalog
          The temporal coverage for this dataset is as follows: Begin datetime: 1997-05-31 00:00:00, End datetime: 1997-08-09 23:59:59. NOAA/ATDD (Tilden Meyers) started operation of a long term flux monitoring site near the Little Washita watershed in Oklahoma in 1996. Half-hourly observations of wind speed and direction, air temperature, relative humidity, pressure, incoming global radiation, incoming and outgoing visible radiation, net radiation, ground heat flux, precipitation, wetness, skin temperature, soil temperature (at 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64 cm), average wind vector speed, kinematic shear stress, streamwise velocity variance, crosswind velocity variance, vertical velocity variance, sensible heat flux, latent energy flux, CO2 flux and soil moisture at 20 cm (started 5 June 1997).

          SGP97 Sub-Surface: PSU Soil Properties Data (Hydraulic)

          NAL Geospatial Catalog
            The temporal coverage for this dataset is as follows: Begin datetime: 1997-06-01 00:00:00, End datetime: 1997-07-31 23:59:59. This data set was developed by the EOS IDS Team at Penn State for the Southern Great Plains 1997 (SGP-97) project. The following data coverages are available: DEM, Landcover and Landuse, Gauge Stations, Available Water Capacity, Bulk Density, Depth to Bedrock, Hydrologic Soils Group, Mapunits, Percent Water, Porosity, Rock Fragment Class, Rock Volume, Soil Fractions, and Surface Soil Texture.

              SGP97 Sub-Surface: PSU Soil Properties Data (Bulk Density)

              NAL Geospatial Catalog
                The temporal coverage for this dataset is as follows: Begin datetime: 1997-06-01 00:00:00, End datetime: 1997-07-31 23:59:59. Using the volume extracted and the dry weight of the soil extracted, the bulk density was computed; the results obtained from sampling the soil surface layer (0-5 cm) bulk density are provided, and files are all ASCII text.
