Surface In-Situ Networks
9 eddy covariance systems are located in central Oklahoma and Kansas, measuring fluxes of sensible heat, latent heat, and carbon dioxide over crops. 7 systems are planned for installation in the next year: 3 at the ARM NSA ACRF near Barrow, AK, 4 at the ARM TWP ACRF near Darwin, Australia. One system operates as part of a mobile unit that is located in a different country each year.

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.
