Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The increase in anthropogenic emissions into the atmosphere has the potential to significantly disturb the radiative energy balance of the earth due to its effect in land ocean and atmospheric interactions. Accurate measurements are necessary to be obtained in an extended period of time to fully understand these processes. The time scales for detecting changes in the global climate are at least on the order of months to years or even decades. To perform measurements over extended periods at a variety of sites, an automated system, capable of being shipped to remote locations is developed using a standards-based, modular VXI instruments.
