REMARKS
The ARM ECOR and EBBR systems will be re-located into a smaller area near the center of the ARM SGP ARCF during the next year, in an attempt to provide a more dense network of flux measurements within a satellite grad cell and to better represent fluxes over typical land-use types. EBBR stations will continue to make measurements in grasslands.
