Hildebrand's HAPEX King Air Flux and Soundings

| DOI: 10.5065/KRN3-VF22

The Hydrologic Atmospheric Pilot Experiment (HAPEX) was a project designed to measure the hydrological budget and evaporation flux at the scale of a general circulation model grid square (104 km^2 at the time). The HAPEX research area was in the southwest part of France, and the NCAR King Air participated by making routine daytime observations of heat, moisture, and momentum fluxes during a 67-day period May 9 and July 14, 1986. This dataset contains flight-level data from 20 King Air missions.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
