The data used in this analysis were provided under a memorandum of understanding between Earth Networks, Inc. (formerly AWS Convergence Technologies, Inc.), and the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The data were archived by the NOAA Atmospheric Turbulence and Diffusion Division (of the Air Resources Laboratory), located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Comments by anonymous reviewers contributed substantially to this presentation, and it is hoped that related discussion might continue. The work was supported by both Earth Networks, Inc., and the Air Resources Laboratory of NOAA. The principal author serves as a consultant to Earth Networks, Inc.
