Abstract

This data set contains air/sea eddy covariance fluxes and related data measured at the US Army Corps of Engineers Field Research Facility (USACE FRF) at Duck, North Carolina.  The goal of this study was to determine transfer velocities for momentum, water vapor, and sulfur dioxide in order to study the processes controlling air/sea deposition of highly soluble gases.  The measurements were made during March and April, 2015.

Methods

The instrumentation and techniques used in collection of this data and the methods used in data analysis are documented in Porter et al., 2018 and Porter et al. (2019).
