Turbulence from maize field (Mahomet, IL, July 2011)

This is a 7.5-hour statistically stationary raw turbulence data obtained within and above a maize field (total of 5 measurement heights). The field experiment is described in detail by Gleicher et al. (2014)). The dataset is described in Chamecki (2013). The same dataset has been used in a number of papers, including Pan et al. (2014), Pan et al. (2014), and Pan and Chamecki (2016).
