Biometerology and Micrometerology

http://www.biometeorology.umn.edu/Biomet_welcome.php
Heat and mass transfer between the biosphere and atmosphere can have important consequences for the climate system. We use biometeorological techniques to better understand the processes and feedback mechanisms that control heat and mass transfer near the Earth's surface from ecosystem to regional scales. Measurement technologies have been developed that allow rapid and continuous measurement of atmospheric properties, such as turbulence and trace gases, providing an opportunity to answer important questions related to the cycles of energy, water, carbon, and many other scalars.

There is access to real-time data, plus archived data (in cooperation with USDA-Agricultural Research Service).
