Station was constructed at Lake Hoare and partially dismantled and flown to Beacon Valley. The station was reconstructed and made operational. Array ID for Beacon is 11, same as Vida. Change in program in Nov 2001 Date of Establishment: November 27, 2000 by Susan Kaspari, Thomas Nylen and Adrian GreenSampling Frequency: wind every 4 secs.; others: every 30 secs.Averaging and Output Interval: every 30 min1. array I.D. o1 2. day ok 3. time ok 4. mean air temp. @ 3 meters (C) rclow 5. mean R.H. @ 3 meters (%) ok 6. mean solar flux coming down (W/m2) ok 7. mean solar flux going up (W/m2) ok 8. mean horizontal wind speed (m/s) ok 9. resultant mean wind speed (m/s) o1 10. resultant mean wind direction (degrees from north) ok 11. standard deviation of wind direction (degrees) ok 12. maximum wind speed (m/s) ok 13. minimum wind speed (m/s) ok 14. mean P.A.R.

All input values look good. Power off at 10:50. = Station removed from service. Beacon met station, including tower and all sensors, were relocated to Lake Hoare as “New Hoare” met station.
