Many thanks are given to the ARL-BE measurement team for their participation and continued support in obtaining the data and clarifying questions about the tower sites. Special thanks are given to Yansen Wang, Sam Chang, Giap Huynh, Chatt Williamson, and Dennis Garvey, my colleagues at ARL, for their helpful comments and discussions. Thanks are also given to the anonymous reviewers who aided in the improvement of this manuscript.
