Hi Dave,

Yesterday, I took another walk over to the west robot and confirmed
that the tower sections I found on my 7/29 visit were actually the
west robot tower sections...

I also dug into old emails and found that we moved the two old east
robot tower sections and added them to what was left of the NIWOT02
tower..we did this on July 11th, 2007....there are a few photos from
when we did this here:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/photos_070711.html

I think the idea was that Maggie (post-doc with Russ) wanted to access
higher up in the trees with her PAR wands...

To summarize here are the tower sections which are available:

West robot (2 tower sections)
http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160729/pic00027.jpg
http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160817/pic00019.jpg

"Leaning tower" (5 tower sections)
http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160729/pic00024.jpg

NIWOT02 tower (w/ East Robot) (4 sections)
http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160729/pic00029.jpg

The locations of the west robot and NIWOT02 tower are shown on this
map:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/sean/plots_cme/niwot_map_040818.png

where the NIWOT02 tower is labeled as "NCAR Tower (2002)".  The
"leaning tower" is shown as a small circle about 25 m due west of the
main AmeriFlux tower...

Hi Dave,

the leaning canopy access tower (ie, the one closest to the main
tower) has 5 sections...looks like:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160729/pic00024.jpg
http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160729/pic00025.jpg

it took some searching, but I found the old "NIWOT02" ncar
tower...don't know who these sections actually belong to...I
think Alex Guenther, but he left NCAR several years ago...there
are 4 sections there and the davit:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160729/pic00028.jpg
http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160729/pic00029.jpg
http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160729/pic00030.jpg

there are two trees leaning on the top of the tower, ie:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160729/pic00031.jpg

and some hardware still there:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160729/pic00032.jpg

two sections from the "west robot" are still there, ie:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160729/pic00027.jpg

i went to the east robot and there was nothing there...I searched
through some old emails and it seems like Maggie Prater (post-doc with
Russ) moved them in 2007...I'll have to look more at my emails next
week to see if I can figure out where they moved them to...she just
wrote that she wanted to move them "somewhere North"...it could also
be that what I thought was the west robot was actually the two
sections Maggie moved...I'll double check this next time I'm at the
site...

so, more next week, but that is a quick summary of what's
available...we also have a long ladder, ie:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160729/pic00023.jpg

but that is probably not very useful for winter sampling...

do you know where you plan to move the tower sections?

thanks!

                              SpB.

--------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, check on span, swap TGA cr5000.

Weather: Very warm and clear.  I could find one small patch of snow
about 100' from the road in the forest...other than that, no snow to
be seen.  And the flow down the trail was actually quite small...Como
was high, but not too high.  Summer has arrived!

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep (parked at MRS).   There was a tour and BBQ
so it was very busy at MRS...

* there was a "CFIS" overflight by Christian Frankenberg at caltech.
They were at approx 17k feet...I didn't see the plane...

* it was extremely hazy and smoggy looking down onto the
plains...also, there seemed to be some smoke in the mts too?

* hiked up the power line.

 ---------

* Span cylinder at 50 ---> 2000 psi. N2 1300 psi

* at approx 13:00 MST, removed cc355203 and started cc175573 at 2000 psi

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 0
       TP101 461 middle probe = 0
               farthest probe = 0


* at 13:05 MST, disconnected 5V power to Az sensors (MARK logger)


* from 13:07-13:10 MST, adjusted span/zero flow in LI-6262

* turned on fan for LI-6251 enclosure

* spent some time swapping the TGA CR5000...there was
still a problem...so this didn't fix the issue...

* note, removed the one working PCMCIA card (it's in the
reader)...left one there to test...need to test all these cards!

* downloaded logger data:

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016 Visit:
-------------------------------
At the site: SpB, HB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, check on span,
try to fix TGA cr5000.

Weather: warm, some breezes, and a few clouds.  Surprisingly, still
plenty in the forest....not as much melting near trees as I would
expect.  Supposed to warm up over the next week.  I expect the snow
will go quickly....

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep (parked at MRS).

* Road to C-1 is OPEN...there is a bit of a mess there...I guess the
trench NEON dug last fall turned in quicksand...a MRS SUV got stuck
there...futher up the road, the snowcat is sitting DOA.

* the water at Barker Res was going over the spillway (with a quite
good flow rate!).

* hiked up the power line.

 ---------

* Span cylinder at 200 psi. N2 1510 psi

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 34
       TP101 461 middle probe = 50
               farthest probe = 58

* recorded the SNs for the UC and MARK 23X loggers...

UC:  sn 2091
MARK:  sn 2768
UCB:  sn  6425

* hauled a deep-cycle battery and battery maintainer from the trailer
  to the shed (to use with the TGA CR5000).

   The logger has failed and it will not compile the program that it
   was running on Monday.

   We cannot collect any data until the logger is replaced.  As we
   discussed, the main reason to continue to collect data is to
   support your profile measurements - I'm ready to pull the plug now.

   Please close the tank valves on all the tanks (should be 8) and
   turn off the power to the pumps.  When you can get back to make the
   changes we'll fire it back up.

   Hills, we still need to keep it cold (LN2 fills) and keep
   collecting needles.  We need to keep the internet stuff going and
   power for the sapflux system.

  is that why it doesn't compile?  I don't have
  old programs so I can't test it...

  i won't be able to swap loggers today...

-----------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, swap N2.

Weather: warm, light breezes, and high clouds.  The snow in open
places is gone...still plenty in the forest, but not much post-holing
(except near trees).  Post=hole to just about the knee.  Supposed
to get cold and some snow early next week.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* hiked up the power line.

 ---------

* NOTE:  need to get ucb2_17.dat off the laptop!!

* Span cylinder at 300 psi. N2 250 --> 1800 psi

* from 11:00-12;00 MST, removed cc316615 (N2) at 250 psi and started gg22047 at 1800 psi

* was planning to use cc319297, but found that it's pressure was only
  at 800 psi!! (so I suspect it has a leak in the tank?)....check it
  next time and, if stable, could probably use it...

* moved cc153444 (span) from C-1 to the tower

   Hi all,

   A new update: I managed to outsmart myself. In addition to the
   regular data tables, I had the logger saving table files each
   night. Turns out that the table files were still available from
   March 17 through last night at midnight.

   I've downloaded all of them, and updated the datalogger
   programs. Now the loggers are saving 30sec data and 5min data,
   along with the 5min table files. That means the 5min table is good
   for more than 50 days of storage.

   That means, I think we are only missing 2 hrs of IRR data from this
   morning (6:30 - 8:30am MST) when I was messing around with
   everything on the computer and dataloggers. I'll verify all of this
   after I download and backup all the images and pair/plot data.

   ~Don

Hi Don,

Thanks for the update...I saw a message on the monitor that the last
successful bootup was on March 23rd..here is what the screen looked
like when I first plugged in the monitor:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160421/pic00014.jpg

I rebooted and a similar screen came up...it said "Attempting repairs"
and that little blue bar in the middle was going back and
forth...seemed to be hanging up there....and, if I recall correctly, I
hit "cancel" and then it bypassed this screen and finished booting
correctly.  After that, it booted up ok.

Other photos from yesteday are here:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/photos_160421.html

The computer in the shed is shown here:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/160421/pic00029.jpg

I left it with the monitor turned off (but the monitor, keyboard, and
mouse are all attached to the computer)...it's probably good to have
this as a backup in case the same thing happens with the old
computer..

it's a bummer that those images were lost at a time when the forest is
becoming active...I would be interested to see the canopy IR data
when/if you have a chance to share them...

thanks!

                                   SpB.

Good morning everyone,

The primary computer on the tower rebooted and reconnected to the
thermal camera just fine last night. Automated image logging is back
to normal.

I checked and I can properly connect to the camera using the backup
computer now located in the shed. That computer is just going to sit
idle and unused, unless we have another issue with the primary
computer.

We are missing images from 12:00AM on March 23 until 1:15PM on April
21.

Since the computer was hanging up on a system screen before the
 Windows OS started, the datalogger data were never downloaded until
 yesterday. Unfortunately, our data rate means that the datalogger
 table fill time is about 18 days for the 5-minute measurements
 because I am also keeping 1 day of raw data (5-second data). That
 means we are missing IRR canopy temperatures for March 23 until April
 4. Dave, can you check the bole temperatures re cord on the trees
 whose heat ratio sap flux sensors are still working and let me know
 if this IRR data goes back far enough to overlap with when the trunks
 were still frozen? Andrew, should I stop logging the raw data and
 simply record 5-minute records with the datalogger? I was saving the
 raw data so that if we changed image frequency, we always had data to
 compare to. Or I could change the raw data interval to 30sec.

Thank you again to Sean and Hills for all your help with this. Its a
frustrating problem to have a computer error wreak havoc, but at least
we dont have any completely dead equipment.

Cheers,
~Don

858: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Thu 01-Sep-2016 12:35:57 MDT, site visit on Friday, April 1st, 2016 (SpB)
Friday, April 1st, 2016 Visit:
-------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, check
on the flir camera

Weather: cool (near freezing), light breeze, and sunny.  lots
of new snow since my last visit!

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* hiked up the snow mobile track.

* couldn't make it all the way to MRS---parked along the road below
MRS.  While I was at the site almost all the snow on the road melted!

---------

* Span cylinder at 600 psi. N2 1000 0 psi

* checked the serial numbers on the CR23Xs..they are:

    RAD/rad:  sn 2089
    PRF/prf:  sn 1037
    MET/met:  sn 2931
  NCTC/nctc:  sn 2403
  SOIL/soil:  sn 2932
TC23X/tc23x:
    UCB/ucb:
    MRS/mrs:

* did several checks on the flir camera...not sure if it helped or
not..here is the final email:

Hi  Don,

thanks...back in trailer now...hopefully it comes back up after
midnight...your list of stuff looks correct.  I'll have
a few photos that I'll post later...

also, next week I can email the CU network folks and maybe
they can tell us the IP addresses of everything on our
subnet....from that we might be able to figure out what
that computer is using (or whether it actually has an IP)...


                            SpB.

At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, swap N2

Weather: very warm, light winds.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up PsT BMW.

* hiked up the power line (fairly warm/windy recently so parts of it
are snow-free).

           (black/blue/clear)

* for NCTC logger, T9 is not working (all -99999)

I don't think it's TC junction itself..looks like the wires have been
twisted at the base of the metal support...so swapped the TC at the
connector with one of the TCs connected to the "mark" cr23x...it's one
of the ones that is just below the platform.  after that, it worked
ok...the T9 temperature seemed reasonable (but there might be some
change at this level?)...

I left the TC junction from Mark cr23x open (nothing connected to
it)....

on 2/18, it looks like the GPS has gone RIP!!  (likely because of Mark R catching the cable?)

Friday, January 29th, 2016 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, swap N2?

Weather: windy, but not too cold.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up Avis Kia (brand new!).

* caught a ride from Duane in the snowcat to C1.  the "snow pit" crew
of about 5 people was out near the tower doing a snow pit (they were
heading down the trail as I was arriving).

* found some "eldo" sunscreen in the shed, also there
is a small mammal trap there..who to contact?

---------

* Span cylinder at 1100 psi. N2 at 430 psi (was planning to swap N2,
but pressure seems "ok", so left as-is).

* hauled cc448922 (n2) to the tower.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 49 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 60 cm
               farthest probe = 67 cm

* since the pcmcia cards for the MRS logger are a bit suspicious, I
brought the memory card reader (MCR1) with me and downloaded at the
site.  Need a csi card storage module (CSM1) to test the older cards.

* from 14:08-14:10 MST, adjusted span/N2 flow in the LI-6262 system.

* checked the soil logger voltage and the charger swap I made on 18
  January fixed the slowly dropping voltage!

* downloaded logger data:

At the site: SpB, DL

Purpose of visit: swap charger for soil logger battery

Weather: a few wind gusts; generally sunny and warm.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up DL subaru.

* MLK Jr Holiday

* a quick stop at the tower while going for a ski with Don L.

---------

* noticed that the voltage for the soil logger has been steadily
dropping since a lightning storm way back on day 275, Oct 2nd, 2015.
Replaced the charger with a spare 850mA charger that has been in the
trailer (it doesn't seem like any data have been lost!)...

* downloaded soil logger data:

----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, add battery charger for LI-7500A.

Weather: very windy, sunny, cold.  plenty of snow on the trail and in
the forest.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* Hills was doing TGA stuff.

* last visit of the year!
---------

* Span cylinder at 1400 psi. N2 at 1200 psi

* was going to add the snow-therm IR sensor, but decided to prepare it
  in town (bring next time!).  ch12 on met logger is open.

* the PCMCIA card from Jen labeled "soddie 3-23-12" had a problem (see
  screen shot).

-rwxr-xr-x  1 root     484040 Dec 18 15:47 screenshot_151218_pccard_issue.png

* at around 14:40 MST, swapped out the battery charger for LI-7500A
(21.5m)...this was the yuasa XXX...on Monday, 12/21, had lost contact
with the 21.5m LI-7500A again!  (ugh!)...

 lost a lot of data from this IRGA in the past month..here is a summary:

Friday, December 4th, 2015 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, add power supply for LI-7200.

Weather: Sunny, warm, calm.  Snow on the trail and in the forest.
All bare areas are snow-free.  Can still hear como creek gurgling.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* Hills was doing TGA stuff.

* Duane drove old snocat up to C1.  Caught a ride back to MRS
  with him.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1550 psi. N2 at 1500 psi

* snow depths (from top of tape!):

              closest to tree = 40 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 39 cm
               farthest probe = 29 cm

* at around 14:00 MST, rebooted charger for LI-7500A (21.5m) (worked
  only briefly, again!)...I should have known better!  I need to
  replace this charger...

* from 14-14:30 MST, added a new power supply for LI-7200/LI-7550

* we lost quite a bit of LI-7200 data (from 9/22-12/4)..here are the

Hi Jen,

I found the pcmcia cards...one of them appears to have a dead battery,
but the others all seemed fine...there was some data on some of them
(most of it quite old)..I downloaded the data just in case you have
any use for it...the data files I found were:

in case they are needed:

* the towerCAMtree had dead batteries....and the cloudCAMwest camera
was dead...so I moved the towerCAMtree up to the cloudCAMwest location
(it seemed to be working ok when I left).  For all cameras, I lowered
the photo sample timing from every 5-min to every 10-min.

850: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Thu 01-Sep-2016 11:38:36 MDT, site visit on Friday, November 13th, 2015 (SpB)
Friday, November 13th, 2015 Visit:
----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: swap N2 tank, download logger data, diagnose
problem with LI-6251.

Weather: Sunny and breezy.  Snow on the trail and in the forest.
Possible BIG storm early next week.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up Avis subcompact (CU motor pool no longer rents
  vehicles).

* forgot to bring AA batteries for my camera, so borrowed them
  from Jen at MRS.

* Duane drove old snocat up to C1.  Found a shovel in front of
  the trailer---moved it inside.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1700 psi. N2 at 200-->1870 psi

* snow depths (from top of tape!):

              closest to tree = 29 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 28 cm
               farthest probe = 20 cm

* at approx 14:00 MST swapped N2, removed cc153282 (N2) started
  cc453413 at 1870 psi

* dragged two empty cylinders back to C1:  cc254814 (span), cc153282 (N2)
  put them in front of the trailer.

* from 13:00-14:00 MST, turned off pumps (knf and big pump) to LI-6251
  (prof).  The prof system has not been working (it had some issues,
  but really stopped working in July, 2015).  The pumps both seemed to
  be ok, but it seems like the valves are not changing properly.  This
  will require more serious dismantling and probably can't be done
  until following snowmelt next spring....for now, I left the LI-6251
  itself running, but can probably turn it off on a future visit.

* the middle prof inlet (14m?) had come loose from the support...since
  no longer using prof system, just zip-tied it to the tower.

* at around 15:00 MST, rebooted charger for LI-7500A (21.5m)...it was
  working briefly, but within several hours appears to be off-line
  again.  this battery charger is not working!!

* at around 15:15 MST, repaired tc.csat4..this was a broken fine-wire
  TC...now it's a "thick" tc.

* removed power supply and SDM cable for old LI-7500 (sent to
  AmeriFlux)...was hoping to use this power supply for the 21.5m
  LI-7500A/LI-7550, but the power connector is not the same.  So,
  removed the box from the tower (it's in the TGA shed).

* tried to fix up east looking cam...downloaded data from it:

-rw-r--r-- 1 sburns aster 2655344640 Nov 23  2015 /data3/photos_webcam_mark/photos_cloudcam_east_151113.tar

* took a screenshot of TC logger desktop during download (this shows
  which channels have problems!):

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     473879 Nov 13 12:19 screenshot_151113a.png*

* added the PC card to the MRS logger (download is for only previous 3
  days)

* downloaded logger data:

849: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Thu 01-Sep-2016 11:32:34 MDT, site visit on Monday, November 2nd, 2015 (SpB)
Monday, November 2nd, 2015 Visit:
----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: swap span tank, download logger data, collect
data from LI-7500a (21.5m) with data system.

Weather: warm, sunny, calm.  Snow expected later in the week.  First
site visit this fall with snow on the ground.


--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.  had a mishap trying to get up the road---slid
down and off the road.  was able to get back on road with some small
damage...ugh!

* it looks like our cart has been destroyed, ie:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/151102/pic00004.jpg

....(see emails below, with Nick from NEON)...

*

---------

* Span cylinder at < 100 psi. N2 at 400 psi

* swapped span (details)

* at 16:19 MST, started ops86: removed accel1 output from mark logger
(started mark_11.csi), added analog DAC ouput from LI-7550 connected
to 21.5m LI-7500a.

new logger programs:

-rwxr-xr-x   1 sean mmm      5010 Nov  2 09:27 mark_11.csi*
-rwxr-xr-x   1 sean mmm      9913 Nov  2 14:44 fast_24.csi*

* Also saved the configuration files for both LI-7500A's:

-rwxr-xr-x   1 sean mmm      4761 Nov  2 09:45 LI7500A_op1_2.5m_151102.l7x*
-rwxr-xr-x   1 sean mmm      4753 Nov  2 09:50 LI7500A_op2_21.5m_151102.l7x*

* added DAC ouput from 21.5m LI-7500A (this is the same setup as the
  2.5m LI-7500A):

  LI-7500A, DAC1 co2 umol/mol    0 V = 360 ppm     -->  5V = 450 ppm
            DAC2 h20 mmol/mol    0 V = 0 mmol/mol  -->  5V = 30 mmol/mol

* moved some of the TCs connected to the am25t mux (mx3) in the
clearing around...the channels I changed were (see photos):

note:  mx3 = MUXB = am25t sn 1396

moved sensor that was in mx3_04 to mx3_04, and completely
removed sensor from mx3_04 ie:

removed:  Tc_snow_clearing_100cm_mx3_04
moved:  Tc_bole_pine16_0m_3cm_mx3_03  to Tc_bole_pine16_0m_3cm_mx3_04
added:  Tc_bole_fir2_0_5m_3cm_mx3 to ch 03 --> Tc_bole_fir2_0_5m_3cm_mx3_03
broken TC:  Tc_bole_fir2_1_5m_3cm

- Also, added TCs to empty channels 17-21:

original:
---------
'38. Tc_bole_pine16_0m_3cm_mx3_03   ';  % added on sept 20th (day 263)
'39. Tc_snow_clearing_100cm_mx3_04  ';  % note, stopped working in mid-summer, 2007; used to be "Tc_bole_pine5_0m_3cm_mx3_04", added on day 281 (oct 8t\
h), used to be "Tc_soil_pine16_0m_5cm_mx3_04"
...
'52. Tc_empty_mx3_17                ';  % not connected!!
'53. Tc_empty_mx3_18                ';  % not connected!!
'54. Tc_empty_mx3_19                ';  % not connected!!
'55. Tc_empty_mx3_20                ';  % not connected!!
'56. Tc_empty_mx3_21                ';  % not connected!!

modified:
---------
'38. Tc_bole_fir2_0_5m_3cm_mx3_03   ';  % III.19, brown cable, T-type tc, campbell A3537
'39. Tc_bole_pine16_0m_3cm_mx3_04   ';  % brown cable, T-type tc, campbell A3537
...
'52. Tc_bole_spr2_0m_3cm_mx3_17     ';  % III.12, T-type tc, campbell A3537
'53. Tc_bole_spr2_1_5m_3cm_mx3_18   ';  % III.10, T-type tc, campbell A3537
'54. Tc_bole_spr2_0_5m_3cm_mx3_19   ';  % III.11, T-type tc, campbell A3537
'55. Tc_mx3_20                      ';  % blue tape with "3" on it, T-type tc, campbell A3537  (need to check it in spring)
'56. Tc_bole_fir4_0m_3cm_mx3_20     ';  % III.16, T-type tc, campbell A3537

The channels that were not working are:  mx3_07, mx3_13, mx3_16

Also, Tc_bole_fir2_1_5m_3cm apparently has a broken TC junction.

* took photos of all the trees where we are measuring the bole temperature.

Hi All,

Similar to last week, It looks like we lost contact with tower late on
Friday afternoon (around 5-6pm).

Other sites on Niwot ridge seem ok (such as C1), so this appears to be
a problem only with the network going from C1 to the tower---I'm
planning a trip up on Tuesday to investigate.  If anything was done
related to the network late in the afternoon last Friday (9 Oct),
please let me know.

thanks,

                                            SpB.

Hi Jen, that is extremely helpful---thank you!  If the network is not
fixed today, I'll call MRS for an update tomorrow.

Hope that Oren is feeling better soon...

cheers,

847: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Thu 01-Sep-2016 11:26:10 MDT, site visit on Wednesday, September 30th, 2015 (SpB, PB, GS, JK)
Wednesday, September 30th, 2015 Visit:
--------------------------------------
At the site: SpB, PB, GS, JK

Purpose of visit: finish removal of eol CSATs, DSM,
cables, etc.

Weather: cloudy with some very light rain.  very calm during
removal of equipment.


--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Suburban.  met Peter at foothills lab and Graham
  Sexstone (from USGS/CSU) at settlers park.

* it was a busy day at the site (NEON was hauling stuff up/down the
  road by C1).  John Knowles was helping with the snow fence and
  stopped by toward the end of the day.

* this is the LAST day that CU fleet-services will be renting
  vehicles.

---------

* Span cylinder at ?? psi. N2 at ? psi  (didn't check pressures)

* took down the LI-7500 control box and brought both the head and box
back to CU (to mail to Sebastian).  Note, many of the cables and the
power supply (unplugged) are still on the tower.

* in the morning shutdown the "forestcam/sonic" DSM and transferred
all the data to urquell.  I also saved all the config files as:

* here is a summary of changes to the thermocouples:

* Updated fine-wire thermocouple deployment info:

variable     diff channel   Nominal Ht / other info
-------     -------------   ---------------------------------------
Ttc.Ttype       6           co-located with "15m" CSAT3 (started on Sept 4th, 2015)
Ttc.csat1       7           4.8m, co-located with "20m" CSAT, at end of boom  (need to check this, see below)
Ttc.csat2       8           8m, co-located with TC from NCTC logger ("T3")
Ttc.csat3       9           8.55m, co-located with "10m" CSAT3, moved to end of boom on 7/21  (on 8/18 PM, looks like Ttc.csat3 is having dropouts!)
Ttc.csat4       10          12.25m, co-located with "15m" CSAT3, moved to end of boom and replaced with fine-wire on 8/6 (having dropout issues!!)
Ttc.csat5       11          co-located with 5m CSAT3, on 8/14/15:  changed from thick to to fine-wire (and moved closer to path)
Ttc.csat6       12          8.55m, co-located with "10m" CSAT3, fine-wire, deployed on 7/21

* fine-wire thermocouples:

  Ttc.csat6, started on 7/21, co-located with "10m" CSAT3
  Ttc.csat4, started on 8/6, co-located with "15m" CSAT3 (appears to have dropouts!)
  Ttc.csat5, started on 8/14, co-located with "5m" CSAT3

On Sept 4th, made the following changes:

* added a thick T-type thermocouple to 15m level (using diff ch6).

* from 14:30-14:40 MST, in mark logger: swapped diff chan 9
  (Ttc.csat3) with diff chan 8 (Ttc.csat2)

  - this was an attempt to see if the dropouts in the Ttc.csat3
    data are related to Diff ch9 or the wire which goes to the
    thermocouple?  (this change actually seemed to fix the dropouts?
    need to check more carefully).

On Sept 21st, changed the sample rate from 20-Hz to 10Hz.

On Sept 30th, made the following changes (and updated the table):  STILL NEED TO FINISH!!

Ttc.Ttype       6           co-located with "15m" CSAT3 (started on Sept 4th, 2015)
Ttc.csat1       7           4.8m, co-located with "20m" CSAT, at end of boom  (need to check this, see below)
Ttc.csat2       8           8m, co-located with TC from NCTC logger ("T3")
Ttc.csat3       9           8.55m, co-located with "10m" CSAT3, moved to end of boom on 7/21  (on 8/18 PM, looks like Ttc.csat3 is having dropouts!)
Ttc.csat4       10          ONLY one that was left as a fine-wire (broke on Oct XX 2015)
Ttc.csat5       11          co-located with 5m CSAT3, on 8/14/15:  changed from thick to to fine-wire (and moved closer to path)
Ttc.csat6       12          removed fine-wire on 9/30, added to IC




846: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Tue 10-May-2016 11:55:06 MDT, site visit on Monday, September 28th, 2015 (SpB, MR)
Monday, September 28th, 2015 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB, MR

Purpose of visit: start removal of eol CSATs, move
gas cylinders.

Weather: cloudy with some sun breaks.  a bit of wind, but
nothing too strong.  pleasant day.


--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Suburban.  Before leaving town, picked up 7 CSAT3 boxes
from NCAR, picked up 3 gas cylinder from shipping/distribution (Jim at
3300 Walnut), bought two 10' sections of 12 gauge unistrut from Home
Depot.

* ran into Mark Raleigh at MRS (he was going to Soddie + tower, so gave
him and cooley a lift to C1)

---------

* Span cylinder at 400 psi. N2 at 1500 psi

* brought up 2 new N2 cyls, one span (add numbers); moved ccXXXX (n2)
  to snowshed

* laptop updates:

 1. before coming to the site, swapped the monitor between plumwood
    (broken laptop, good monitor) and podocarp (good laptop, broken
    monitor).

 2. after arriving at the site, the "new" Dell laptop would not boot.
    moved the old hard drive back to podocarp.  this seems to be
    working ok, the hard drive is not the problem!

 3. brought the new laptop back to Boulder for more testing...the "A"
    light seems to flash on attempted bootup.

* confirmed that the prof pump is up and running (need to investigate
  what is going on with the prof system!?).

* removed power from LI-7200 (try running only the LI-7500A with the
  battery/charger on tower).  The charger was one again showing a
  fault error?  Here are when the breaks occurred in the power/data:

Monday, September 21st, 2015 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download data, swap AM25T at tc logger.

Weather: sunny, a bit of a breeze.  quite warm.


--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Prius.  A suburban is scheduled for next Tue/Wed.

* ran into two NEON people (Dylan Monahan and Hannah ?) working in the
stream at bridge over Como creek.  They were collecting sediment.

* came up with a possible solution to protect the fiber optic cable at
the bridge--use uni-strut!?!?  Perhaps by one long and bring up to the
site next week.

* "new" Dell laptop seems to be working ok.

---------

* Span cylinder at 400 psi. N2 at 1500 psi

call CU and check about new cylinders!!

* battery charger for LI-7200/LI-7550 was showing a fault, reset it (not
  sure this will fix it?), pump flow is off

* from 12:30-14:15 MST, at tc23x logger: swapped am25t sn1616 with
  sn4370.  Checked on a few trees and sensors (need to take photos of
  ALL trees with sensor location, etc).  Also, there are some sensors
  which are not hooked up in the far am25t box.

* at approx 14:30 MST, started mark_09.csi (changed sampling from 20-Hz
  to 10-Hz)

-rwxr-xr-x 1 sburns aster 4812 Sep 21 14:13 mark_09.csi*

* from 15:20-15:30 MST, moved boom for "30m" CSAT from straight to
  angled (so now aligned with subcanopy sensors)

* powered up the NOAH cr10x logger.

Friday, September 4th, 2015 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: logger download, work on thermocouples.

Weather: overcast.  could see rain in the distance.  it sprinkled rain
a bit throughout the day.  actually rained a bit in the late
afternoon, but never too hard.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* caught a ride up to C1 with Duane--he mentioned that NEON is putting
in some instruments and power to Como Creek.  There was spray paint
near the fiber cable (which appears to be compromised!)  at the bridge
over Como (this prompted an email exchange with Bill Bowman and
workers at NEON).

* started using a new dell latitude laptop from ebay...it seemed
to work great, but then when I was in the trailer it acted up.
The "A" light near the start button was flashing and it wouldn't
boot?

* from 14:30-14:40 MST, in mark logger: swapped diff chan 9
  (Ttc.csat3) with diff chan 8 (Ttc.csat2)

  - this was an attempt to see if the dropouts in the Ttc.csat3
    data are related to Diff ch9 or the wire which goes to the
    thermocouple?  (this change actually seemed to fix the dropouts?
    need to check more carefully).

* I made a distance measurement for Don Aubrecht (note, there is a
  long tape measure a the tower, but the 1st 1m has been cut off (it
  seems ok).  I first measured from the tower corner to the fence and
  then from the fence to the locations.  Here are emails about this:

  Hi Don,

  here is what I found:

  from tower corner to rock: 922 cm
  from tower corner to tree_P1:  1252 cm

  The rock measurement was to the pointy side
  of the rock which was the side farthest from
  the tower...

  Also, I moved the big blue box that was somewhat
  in the way...

  hope that helps!

   Hi Sean and Hills,

   I just realized that we forgot to get two distances measured last
   week when we were installing the new thermal camera on the tower.
   I need these measurements to help calibrate some of the corrections
   for the thermal images.  In the attached photo, I’ve marked two
   spots near the base of the tower, on the east side.  One is the
   base of Dave’s sap flux tree labelled “P1”, and the other is the
   pointy corner of a nearby rock.  Next time either of you are at the
   tower, could you take a long tape measure and measure the
   straight-line distance along the ground between the southeast tower
   leg and each of these points?

   Thank you very much,

   ~Don

   Hi Bill,

   We have been looking into various options for getting power across
   the road at Como Creek.  We are planning on trenching approximately
   85 feet across the road there, which is the most straight forward
   option for getting power across the road.  This was shown on the
   original drawing that I sent you (attached).

   We are still working on scheduling, just a heads up on the
   trenching activity, let me know if I can provide any additional
   info.

   Thank you,

  Subject: Power/Instruments at Como Creek near C1?


  Hi Bill/Matt,

  I noticed some spray paint on the ground at C1 and Duane mentioned
  that NEON is planning to add a transformer at C1 and run power to
  Como Creek...today I noticed conduit staged in the forest near our
  trailer, ie:

  http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/150904/pic00032.jpg

  Right now our fiber optic line at the bridge has been chewed on and
  looks compromised in a few places...I have been careful not to move
  it and need to put something more sturdy around it for more
  protection.  Can you put me in contact with the people doing this
  work (I think Duane mentioned Rainbow Electric?)...and also whoever
  is in charge of the entire setup (someone at NEON?)...please ask
  them NOT TO MOVE our fiber optic cable...this is our only link to
  the tower and if it breaks we lose contact with the tower.

  also, it would be very useful to know what/where things are things
  being installed...how much power do they need?  Do they know that
  there is already power not too far from the creek (Dave Bowling
  added this a few years ago)?

  thanks for your help and any additional information you have!


                                   SpB.

Hi Hills,

Yesterday, I marked the spot where the fiber optic cable seems damaged near
Como Creek...all I had time to do was pound in a few metal stakes, ie:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/150821/pic00028.jpg

I'll followup and make this more visible by adding flagging, etc.  I
will also put some kind of a wooden frame around the cable to try and
prevent further damage...I think it's damaged enough that I can see
the individual fibers as shown here:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/150814/pic00019.jpg

Our hope is that if we protect the cable well enough it will keep on
working and not get damaged further...I think there is still plenty of
room for the ATV and/or snowmobile to get by...but let me know if this
is an issue.  Note, this location is just past the bridge over como
creek on the way to the tower...

thanks!

Thursday, August 27th, 2015 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB, AR, DA

Purpose of visit: meet Andrew R. and Don for IR camera, swap
N2 cylinder.

Weather: overcast.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU prius.

* put some wood around/near the fiber optic cable near the creek (try
to protect it)---can I get some split tubing (either PVC or metal) to
protect the cable better?

---------

* Updated the firmware of LI-7500A OP2 (from embedded version 7.0.1 to 7.5.0)
  also updated bootloader (from ver 8 to 9) and checked FPGA (ver 6.0.3), update
  not needed.

* time re-check (seems ok):

LI-7200:  Fri Aug 28 22:24:35 UTC 2015
urquell:  Fri Aug 28 22:24:35 UTC 2015

* at 10:30 MST, reboot LI-7200 (seemed to fix the time issue?)

note:  the time on the LI-7200 appears to be slow by around 10 seconds?

LI-7200:  Wed Aug 26 18:52:50 UTC 2015
urquell:  Wed Aug 26 18:53:00 UTC 2015

LI-7500A, OP1:  Wed Aug 26 18:57:50 UTC 2015

      urquell:  Wed Aug 26 18:59:18 UTC 2015

(both LI-7500A's look good)

the time on isffa seems good:
  isffa: Wed Aug 26 18:54:37 GMT 2015
urquell: Wed Aug 26 18:54:37 UTC 2015

is ptpd working?  why is LI-7200 not using it?

it appears to be running, ie:

investigate why the prof logger went off-line on Friday.

* when moving stuff around last Friday in the power box near the
platform, the prof logger accidentally became unplugged.  Plugging it
back in fixed the problem I checked the logger time and made sure the
prf logger program was running properly.

Friday, August 21st, 2015 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB, DB

Purpose of visit: try new power supply for LI-7200,
swap N2 cylinder.

Weather: Warm with some wind in the afternoon.  Very hazy and smoke
from fires in CA, OR, WA is coming into our area.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up in MRS shuttle

*

---------

* Span cylinder at 650 psi. N2 at < 100 psi --> 300 psi.

* at approx 8:30 MST, removed cc142673 (100 psi) re-started cc316422
  (n2) at 300 psi (cc316422 is a cylinder used previously that is not
  quite empty).

* had a surprise: plumwood would not boot...pulled the hard drive out
of plumwood and put it in podocarp.  this booted ok.  Unclear why
plumwood is not booting.  So, I'm down to one field laptop (should get
a backup).  I put the hard drive from podocarp into plumwood (should
probably bring back to campus for further evaluation)

* updated LI-7500A (OP1) firmware from ver 7.0.1 to ver 7.5.0

  -- program to use:  update7x00.exe (in LI7200_embedded-7 folder)
  -- did this change the root password back to default?  (yes, it does!)
  -- I also updated the boot loader...it said that FPGA update was not
     needed (it's at 6.0.3)

see file:

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     127894 Aug 21 07:50 li7500A_op1_150821_firmware_update.png*

* added a new charger battery charger (CTEK MUS 4.3) which is supposed
to be able to deal with 4.3 Amps (and should run the LI-7200/pump
module and the LI-7500A).  It also has a "cold-weather"
setting/option.

* here are the LI-7200 data files:

* removed the old power supply that was from Hank Loescher (when I
picked it up water came out of it!!).  The old power supply was
from xp power and was model ecc100us12, ie:

http://www.xppower.com/EN/100529/ECC100-Series
http://www.plccenter.com/Buy/XP%20POWER/ECC100US12

* at 12:10 MST, adjusted the flow for the LI-6262.

* just before leaving the tower; swapped the 0.9 A charger connected
to the LI-7500A_OP1 with a 1.5A Yuasa "smart shot" charger (the one
that was being used with the LI-7200).  Hopefully this will be enough
to stop the LI-7500A_OP1 from dying every two weeks!

* tried to protect the fiber cable near the creek..details are here:

 Subject: Fiber Optic Cable near Como Creek (on way to AmeriFlux tower)

 Hi Hills,

 Yesterday, I marked the spot where the fiber optic cable seems damaged near
 Como Creek...all I had time to do was pound in a few metal stakes, ie:

 http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/150821/pic00028.jpg

 I'll followup and make this more visible by adding flagging, etc.  I
 will also put some kind of a wooden frame around the cable to try and
 prevent further damage...I think it's damaged enough that I can see
 the individual fibers as shown here:

 http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/150814/pic00019.jpg

 Our hope is that if we protect the cable well enough it will keep on
 working and not get damaged further...I think there is still plenty of
 room for the ATV and/or snowmobile to get by...but let me know if this
 is an issue.  Note, this location is just past the bridge over como
 creek on the way to the tower...

 thanks!


                                      SpB.

* Updated fine-wire thermocouple deployment info:

variable     diff channel   Nominal Ht / other info
-------     -------------   ---------------------------------------
Ttc.csat1       7           4.8m, co-located with "20m" CSAT, at end of boom  (need to check this, see below)
Ttc.csat2       8           8m, co-located with TC from NCTC logger ("T3")
Ttc.csat3       9           8.55m, co-located with "10m" CSAT3, moved to end of boom on 7/21  (on 8/18 PM, looks like Ttc.csat3 is having dropouts!)
Ttc.csat4       10          12.25m, co-located with "15m" CSAT3, moved to end of boom and replaced with fine-wire on 8/6 (having dropout issues!!)
Ttc.csat5       11          co-located with 5m CSAT3, on 8/14/15:  changed from thick to to fine-wire (and moved closer to path)
Ttc.csat6       12          8.55m, co-located with "10m" CSAT3, fine-wire, deployed on 7/21

which one with is with 5m CSAT3??  Either csat1 or csat5....the other is with the "20m" CSAT3.

plot(s_jd_mst,[s_Ttc_csat1 s_tc_20m s_tc_5m])    % this confirms s_Ttc_csat1 is with "20m" CSAT3

plot(s_jd_mst,[s_Ttc_csat5 s_tc_20m s_tc_5m])    % this confirms s_Ttc_csat5 is with "5m" CSAT3
set(gca,'xlim', [226 227])

* fine-wire thermocouples:

  Ttc.csat6, started on 7/21, co-located with "10m" CSAT3
  Ttc.csat4, started on 8/6, co-located with "15m" CSAT3 (appears to have dropouts!)
  Ttc.csat5, started on 8/14, co-located with "5m" CSAT3

* more info about the fine-wires:

Thursday, August 6th, 2015 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, replace prof pump

Weather:

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up in MRS shuttle

*

---------

* Span cylinder at xxx psi. N2 at xxx psi.

* at 7:00 MST, was able to reboot the LI-7200 by sending the following
  command to the instrument:

   (LI7200(Program(Reset TRUE)))

* a new profiler micro pump:  KNF unmp830kni Dt: 07/2015, No. 1.8503659

* found the tap/die set in the trailer (mine?): tapped out holes to
mount inside the prof enclosure.  used tap: 6NC32 (it seemed to be the
only one that would work).  the bolts are not perfectly snug, but it
should work ok (note: turn tap clockwise, then counter-clockwise,
repeat).

* at around xx:xx MST, installed KZ PAR-LITE at top of tower.

  Notes:  uses DIFF ch.9, this is "PAR2.up" in data system.

 wiring:

       white wire = H
       green wire = L
           shield = GND.

838: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Wed 02-Mar-2016 11:25:44 MST, site visit on Thursday, July 21st 2015 (SpB, ES, RC, IB, BC)
Tuesday, July 21st, 2015 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB, ES, CSI+

Purpose of visit: CSI removing instruments, move LI-7500, setup TCs.

Weather: Thick clouds most of the day, rain storm in the afternoon,
then clear.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU prius

* the NSF flux class started (saw Dave Moore, Russ).

* CSI was removing all of their equipment from the tower.

---------

* Span cylinder at 860 psi. N2 at 810 psi.

* from 8-10:30 MST, CSI removed CPEC200 and three CSATs from the tower

* at 9:00 MST, completely shutdown/unplugged the picarro shed

* from approx 9-10 MST, moved LI-7500 from 21.5m to be co-located with "20m" CSAT at approx 14m

  - the LI-7500 should be moved a bit further out and re-positioned
    during a future site visit!

* at 13:45 MST, started ops79: from FAST logger, removed ec155 voltage
  added back analog h2o voltage from the LI-7200 h2o.li7200; from MARK
  logger, added one more Ttc.sonic6 (started mark_05.csi); removed CSI
  CSAT (27m) from sonic dsm.  The two new logger programs:

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster       9372 Jul 21 14:57 fast_23.csi*

the range of h2o.li7200 output on dac2 was:  h2o dry (mmol/mol) 0V = 0   5V= 30 mmol/mol
(this is what it was previously)

Thursday, July 16th, 2015 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: make CSAT measurements, download logger data.

Weather: Quite windy and cool.  It was clear, then cloudy with a brief
rain shower.  Then clear again.

--------- Misc Notes:

* rode up in MRS shuttle.

* researcher from near barcelona was collecting phytoplankton from GL4.

*

---------

* Span cylinder at 900 psi. N2 at 990 psi.

* setup the rope and pulley system for Ed and co-horts at CSI (they
are taking all the CSI stuff off the tower).

* at around 11:00 MST, started ops78: removed accels 3,4,5 increase
  sample rate to 20-hz (started mark_04.csi).  I first tried to do
  this with only removing two accelerometers, but then the sample rate
  was at 15 Hz...with only sampling ONE accel then it worked at
  20Hz.

locked up.  I did re-start with the LI-COR software and that seemed to
fix it (however, it seems like the time between these problems is
getting shorter and shorter)...took a few screen shots:

* made some more measurements of the CSATs and levels at the tower:

This is from the top of the mid-strut at each level (this strut is where
most of the sonics are attached):

  tower_levels=[[0:14]' [0; 301+22+183.5*[0:13]']];

then,

tower_levels(end:-1:1,:)

         14       2708.50
         13       2525.00
         12       2341.50
         11       2158.00
         10       1974.50
          9       1791.00
          8       1607.50
          7       1424.00
          6       1240.50
          5       1057.00
          4        873.50
          3        690.00
          2        506.50
          1        323.00
          0             0

To get the distance to the middle of the CSAT sampling path then the
distance from the top of the strut to the CSAT path needs to be taken
into account..this is:

distance from top of strut to top of boom = 4.5 cm (height of boom,
check measurement)

distance from top of boom to mid-CSAT sampling path = 5cm (this
assumes that the lower transducers are at the same level as the lower
part of the electronics box in head).

so, approx 9.5 cm should be added to the strut heights.

Hi Andrew/Steve,

Thanks for the followup....here is a photo of the enclosure:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/150716/pic00031.jpg

This photo also shows why it is difficult to capture the sky...the
camera is pointed in a direction with a mountain in the
background...so looking in that direction with a limited field of view
(the old camera had a much wider fov) it will be very difficult to get
the sky and look at any trees the old camera was looking at (which may
or may not be important?).  I think I'll leave it to Andrew to make
any camera-pointing adjustments when he is here next month...

Also, here is a photo of the inside of the old enclosure:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/150716/pic00013.jpg

this is why I didn't see any tracks in the bottom...this also shows
the "tilt" that was in the old camera...at some point last January it
became unattached from that little metal piece...it also shows how
dirty the window was!  I actually don't think I have opened this
enclosure since it was installed (about 6 years ago?)...and I probably
should have (my apologies for that)...

here is the new camera wedged with foam (I also cleaned the window):

Hi David,

ok.  Was this overheating problem occurring when the system shutdown
around July 6th?  ie, was that why it shutdown?  Or, is this a new
problem?  I plan to be at the site next Tue and can do something quick
(if needed)...

Hi Sean,

It looks like measurements are being made, but the instrument is not
in perfect condition. I see it reading the CPU temperature above 100C,
which may mean a CPU cooling fan failure. The optical cavity is
reporting a correct 80C, and the instrument itself is warm and about
the right temperature.

If you're still there, can you stick you hand near the instrument to
feel if there is air movement. This is likely to be an inconclusive
test, but useful to know if the the chassis fan is running (I assume
yes, and that is it just the fan on the CPU which is bad.

Cheers,

David

836: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Wed 02-Mar-2016 11:13:45 MST, site visit on Monday, July 13th, 2015 (SpB)
Monday, July 13th, 2015 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: check on network outage to tower.

Weather: overcast and rather cool.  Could see rain showers to
the north.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* met Henry Brandes (MRS tech) at MRS and we hiked up to C1 to
investigate.

* it looks like it's been very wet this summer (very green, lots of
flowers blooming, etc).

---------

* Span cylinder at 950 psi. N2 at 1210 psi.

Hi Jen/Hills,

It looks like we lost the network connection to the tower at around
17:40 MDT today (Thursday, 9 July)...and when I looked at the on-line
C1 data they appear to have stopped at around that same time....any
idea if this is a power issue or network issue?  It looks like I can
ping some of the IP addresses higher up on the ridge so it seems like
this only a C1 problem?

If you have any additional info, please let us know....I'm out of town
until next week, but heard it's been stormy in CO (I'm hoping this is
a network issue and not a power outage or lightning-damage
problem!)....

thanks!

                                       SpB.

Hi All,

Today Henry and I investigated the network outage at C1...it looks
like the fiber-to-copper converter box at C1 has failed.  It appears
to be damage due to lightning (no lights or power on the box).  Here
is what failed:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/150713/pic00002.jpg

Henry has been in contact with the CU IT/Network group and they have a
spare one that will replace this one.  Not sure when it will be
replaced, but Henry will keep us advised....sounds like it should
happen this week.  Henry, you might check with them if the one they
have available has at least 8 network ports (since all 8 were being
used in the old one).

There was power at the tower and as best as I can tell things are
working there.  Max/Dave N, I think the picarro has a different issue
(and one that started before this network outage).  The big pump was
running, but I could not get anything to come up on the PC monitor or
reboot it...so there appears to be some problem with the computer.

Apparently last week Mon-Thursday was quite wet/rainy/stormy....

Hi All,

network should be back up---thanks Henry for getting this done so

Dave N/Max, please let me know if the picarro is truly having
problems.  If so, I will unplug power to your shed later this week
(unless there is a reason to keep the big pump and everything else
plugged in?)....

834: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 29-Feb-2016 12:02:05 MST, site visit on Thuirsday, June 18th, 2015 (SpB)
Thursday, June 18th, 2015 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: move gas cylinders, add 2nd filter back to LI-6262.

Weather: sunny and warm.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU suburban (to move gas cylinders)

* Como creek is flowing quite strongly, but appears to have already reached
max flow rate.  The Aspens and willows are leafing out.

* found a set of slightly keys just outside the fence around the tower
(they belong to Ed Swiatek).  Tried to cleanup some of the detruis around
the tower (old zip ties, etc).

* Gave Jacques and ? (new student) a ride from MRS to C1.

* Duane was pumping air.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1110 psi. N2 at 1600 psi.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 0 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 0 cm
               farthest probe = 0 cm

* moved 4 new N2 cylinders from MRS to C1 (it seemed like maybe AIRGAS
delivered the cylinders directly to MRS?):

cc267992      N2    trlr/inside    moved to trailer on 6/18/15 (barcode, apv101)
cc453607      N2    trlr/inside    moved to trailer on 6/18/15 (barcode, apv742)

fb0034401     N2    trlr/inside    moved to trailer on 6/18/15 (barcode, dde711)

* moved 4 cylinders from C1 down to MRS:

cc197414      N2    trlr/front    moved back to trailer on 5/22/15, stopped on 5/22/15 at 20psi, started on 2/20/15 at 1850 psi,  moved to tower 7/9/14, moved to trailer on 6/24/14 (barcode, apv109)

* from 11:40-11:59 MST, added 2-micron filter back to the LI-6262 box

* from 12:20-12:30 MST, rebooted LI-7200 + swapped LI-7550 power supply w/ LI-7500A
  (this was an attempt to figure out why the LI-7200 keeps on losing contact with
  the network and stops saving data files on the usb drive).

* turned on the fan in the picarro shed (for Max B.)

* turned on the fan in the LI-6251 box

* from 12:55-13:05 MST, Changed profiler (li-6251) dessicant (now using the
  backup dessicant which is in the 6251 box).

* attempted to reboot  LI-7500A, OP1, but it was having some issues.  So left it with
  power disconnected (seems to be having some power-related problems?).

* downloaded photos from cloudCAMwest and snowCAM:

-rw-r--r--  1 sburns aster 2872893440 Jun 19 09:35 photos_cloudcam_west_150618.tar
-rw-r--r--  1 sburns aster 1178071040 Jun 19 09:36 photos_snowprobes_150618.tar

* moved snowCAM so it now looking at the bowling shed and (hopefully) fence around
  the tower (same location as last summer).

* downloaded logger data (unplugged and shutdown both MRS and NOAH loggers):

833: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 29-Feb-2016 12:00:11 MST, site visit on Monday, June 8th, 2015 (SpB)
Monday, June 8th, 2015 Visit:
----------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: check LI-6262, download logger data.

Weather: sunny and warm.  Some clouds.  There is still quite a bit of
snow in the forest (more than I expected).  The trail to the tower is
mostly snow-covered, but everything around C1 (and road to C1) is
snow-free.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU malibu (tried to get Jeep, but failed).

* Como creek is flowing quite strongly.  The Aspens and willows at C1
are just starting to leaf out.

* some strange scat in the snow on the way to mini-tower.  Also, it
appears that short-tailed weasles have taken over the TGA shed.  They
were running around excitedly and kept looking at me when I was
pulling stuff out of the shed.  Tried to get a photo, but they were
too quick.

* a family of weasels appears to have taken over the TGA shed (they
were quite curious about what I was doing).

---------

* Span cylinder at 1150 psi. N2 at 1750 psi.

* looked in snowshed on way up..three cylinders for pickup there:
cc328553 n2, cc198600 n2, cc436183 co2 (none of these appear to be
mine).  There is also a full shipment of cylinders from Dave B.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 20 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 40 cm
               farthest probe = 38 cm

* placed 4 cylinders for pickup in front of the trailer:

cc197414      N2    trlr/front    moved back to trailer on 5/22/15, stopped on 5/22/15 at 20psi, started on 2/20/15 at 1850 psi,  moved to tower 7/9/14, moved to trailer on 6/24/14 (barcode, apv109)
cc329280      N2    trlr/front    moved to trailer on 12/11/14, retired on 8/22/14 at 100 psi, started on 6/2/14 at 1900 psi, moved to tower on 5/16/14, moved to trailer 6/27/13
cc140756   zeroair  trlr/front    moved back to trailer on 12/4/14, retired on 12/4/14, started on 10/24/14 at 950 psi
cc153241   zeroair  trlr/front    moved back to trailer on 11/21/14, retired on 10/24/14 at 190psi, started on 8/22/14 at 1300 psi

* ptpd seems to be disabled on russter2 (still very slow to boot!).

* at 13:30 MST, fixed LI-6262 flow constriction problem:

  - it appears that the Nupro filter INSIDE the LI-6262 box was
    clogged and causing the flow issues with the LI-6262 air sample.
    Did not have a spare filter (they were in Cristol on
    campus!)....so replaced the filter with a union and am now running
    the LI-6262 with only one Nupro filter (the one at the inlet).
    I'll add the 2nd filter back in on my next site visit.

* at 12:15 MST, re-leveled subcanopy cnr2  (it was at a pretty sharp
angle!), didn't measure the angle, but tried to take a few photos.

* from 14:07-14:10, swiped krypton hygrometer

* turned on the fan in the LI-6262 box

* downloaded photos from cloudCAMeast:

-rw-r--r--  1 sburns aster 1927219200 Jun  9 16:29 photos_cloudcam_east_150608.tar

* the DSM box was in the sun and seemed quite warm...I added section
  of plywood to platform to try and shade the DSM box a bit (might not
  want to leave this over the winter?)...

* rebooted the LI-7200.  here is what the files look like:

-rwxrw-rw-    1 root     root      4825089 Jun  5 18:00 2015-06-05T170000_AIU-1250.ghg

* I'm not sure why this keeps on happening...I've swapped usb drives
so that does not seem to be the issue.  I would next suspect the power
supply.  And I could swap power supplies with the LI-7500A.

* downloaded logger data:

831: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 29-Feb-2016 11:53:23 MST, site visit on Friday, May 1st, 2015 (SpB)
Friday, May 1st, 2015 Visit:
----------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: check on NCTC logger, download logger data.

Weather: Sunny, clear in morning.  Clouds on the plains.  Then clouded
up and some thunder lightning.  Some snow/rain.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep

* still some snow from the big storm last week, but it's very
warm and melting fast.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1310 psi. N2 at 500 psi.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 69 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 86 cm
               farthest probe = 89 cm

* updated NCTC logger program (nctc_05.csi):

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster       2939 May  1 13:52 nctc_05.csi*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster       1477 May  1 13:52 nctc_05.dld*

* because of the small opening/hole in the NCTC logger box, it was
  necessary to have a serial connector between the NCTC logger and the
  DSM.  In the fall 2014 (when I set this up) I put the connector
  inside a plastic bag and underneath the enclosure with the big
  battery.  Somehow, this bag filled with water/snow and the connector
  was sitting in the water (this explains why there were dropouts for
  the NCTC data in the dsm!).  I removed the bag, let the db9
  components dry-out and then re-did the connection (now stuffing the
  connector underneath the enclosure, without the plastic bag).

* coiled up the last working Tir sensor and put it inside the NCTC
  enclosure (need to figure out a plan for these sensors).

* after making these changes, I returned to the trailer and didn't
  see any data from the NCTC logger!

* at first, it was not working...I hiked back to tower and tried
  several things (e.g., went back to old program, etc), but a storm was
  coming so needed to hurry....left it setup, but not working....checked
  it again in the evening of 5/1/15 and it was working!:

* updated OPS to ops76?  I was originally leaving the Tir data output
  as repeats...but in testing, decided to remove those variables.

here are the files:

* need to check tc temps and see if it has intermittent problems or
  not...perhaps there was still water in the cable/connector?

830: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 29-Feb-2016 11:51:03 MST, site visit on Wednesday, April 15th, 2015 (SpB)
Wednesday, April 15th, 2015 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, reset the LI-7200

Weather: Some sun, but mostly clouds.  There was a quick snow squall
while on the tower.  A storm is supposed to hit tonight and tomorrow.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep

* the snowpack is very low...road to C1 is snow-free (and dry)...como
creek has a "gurgle" to it...snow was extremely firm/hard and could
walk almost anywhere.

* met the new MRS manager:  Matt (Matthew.Malick@colorado.edu)

---------

* Span cylinder at 1400 psi. N2 at 800 psi.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 51 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 63 cm
               farthest probe = 69 cm

* reset the LI-7200 by pushing the "reset" button..it has been
running, but I have been unable to log into it...maybe the usb thumb
drive locked up??  It seemed to recover, but we lost a few weeks of
data, ie:

829: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 29-Feb-2016 11:47:35 MST, site visit on Saturday, March 28th, 2015 (SpB)
Saturday, March 28th, 2015 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data

Weather: Warm, Breezy

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep

* the snowpack has taken a real hit...not much snow and warm weather
recently...still some snow on the road below trailer, but water
starting to flow.  walking over snowpack was great--no need for
snowshoes and still fairly firm.

* Ed left some thermocouple holders in the shed (got them).

---------

* Span cylinder at 1600 psi. N2 at 1200 psi.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 66 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 80 cm
               farthest probe = 89 cm

* at around 12:40 MST, moved REBS #4 down to 2m.  NOTE:  aspiration
fans are still not connected!

* also, most moved REBs AM25T from the plastic box to a campbell
enclosure (needed to redo all the wiring, but worth it in the long
run).  Campbell enclosure was "borrowed" from lab (carried up to site
on last visit).

* from around 13:00-14:00 MST, re-did wiring...details:

* swapped SD cards from cloudCAM / snowtempCAM

Saturday, March 7th, 2015 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data

Weather: Warm, powerful sun, calm.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Prius

* could not quite make it up the final stretch of road to MRS..parked
at sourdough trailhead and walked from there...

* brought the campbell enclosure (from cristol) to use with REBS TRH
sensors (Peter said it was ok to take an older one)...note, this was
left in the laser shed...

* lots of new snow since last visit--some melting in upper layers, but
cold below.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1690 psi. N2 at 1510 psi.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 80 cm  (at top mark, but covered with snow so couldn't read it!)
       TP101 461 middle probe = 100 cm
               farthest probe = 109 cm

* from 14:24-14:47 MST, Changed profiler (li-6251) dessicant

* measured CSAT booms, here are details (all measurements are in cm):

Friday, February 20th, 2015 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: Swap gas cylinders, download logger data

Weather: Sunny and calm in early morning, then it started snowing
and snowed quite hard and steady.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep

* brought down a campbell battery and charger pack (might want to use
one of these for running the REBs T/RH sensors?).  Bring to campus
for testing...

---------

* Span cylinder at 20 --> 1800 psi. N2 at 250 --> 1850 psi.

* at approx 10:30 MST, removed cc316422 (n2) started cc197414 at 1850 psi

* at approx 10:30 MST, removed cc254814 (span) started cc185237 (dave
  bowling cylinder) at 1800 psi...

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 87 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 79 cm
               farthest probe = 64 cm

* russter2 booted, but the login window was slow to come up...

* at around 10:00 MST, disconnected power from LI-7500A OP1

* swapped SD card from tower-base cam, files:

-rw-r--r--  1 sburns aster 2356746240 Feb 20 16:41 photos_tower_base_150220a.tar
-rw-r--r--  1 sburns aster 1466429440 Feb 20 16:43 photos_tower_base_150220b.tar

* the SD card at the snowprobes was working, but I didn't swap it...

* downloaded logger data:

826: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 29-Feb-2016 11:38:10 MST, site visit on Saturday, February 7th, 2015 (SpB)
Saturday, February 7th, 2015 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: Swap gas cylinders, download logger data, finish
setup of REBS T/RH probes, resetup picarro.

Weather: Quite windy and very warm.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Prius

* took several videos of the wind and the trees.

* moved the old dell inspiron (quacker backup) laptop from the trailer
back to campus (do I know the password?).

---------

* Span cylinder at 250 psi. N2 at 600 psi.

* moved cc319297 to the tower and put along the fence

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 56 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 68 cm
               farthest probe = 70 cm

* re-setup the picarro back in the picarro shed (Dave Bowling had
disconnected it and moved it to his shed in January).  There were
instructions from Max and David Noone about how to do this.  It seems
like things have been re-configured (re-plumbed) since Max has been
there...it all seemed to come back up ok.

* russter2 was up and running (rebooted itself!)...I guess I need to
unplug it when I leave...

* killed ptp on russter2, ie:

* at 14:00 MST, re-started the LI-7500A OP1 IRGA...it seemed to be
running ok, but no data were being saved on the usb drive and the
network connection went down (again!).

* from 15:01-15:16, replaced the 2-micron filter in the LI-6251 box
(need to check if the profile system is working (or not)?!?...

* at approx 15:40 MST, swiped krypton

* downloaded logger data:

Hi Gordon,

looks like it worked!...the times on the instruments are now close to
NIST time (and before one was around 5 min off from NIST)...and in the
logs on the one instrument that I have root access to, i see the
following:

Jan 13 03:24:00 mDNSResponder: mDNSPlatformRawTime went backwards by 42492 ticks; setting correction fact
or to -857926051

I still don't see anything showing up in the logs on the titan...ie:

-r--r--r--    1 root     root            0 Jan 13 03:23 /var/log/isfs/ptpd_stats

but as long as it's working ok, then this is not critical....

I did see:

Jan 13 03:23:33 titan2 ptpd: Port state changed to init
Jan 13 03:23:33 titan2 ptpd: Port state changed to lstn
Jan 13 03:23:53 titan2 ptpd: Port state changed to mst

in /var/log/isfs/messages on the titan (as you also saw).

thanks for your help!

*after trying to use ptpd2, we found out this was not compatible with
 the LI-7550 (see email to LI-COR, Kevin and Mike)....so Gordon setup
 ptpV1...installed it on isffa and here is what logs show:

root@titan2 tmp# more /etc/default/ptpd
# Any extra command-line options
PTPD_OPTIONS="-t -s 1 -i NTP -b eth0 -p -n _DFLT -S -f /var/log/isfs/ptpd_stats -R /var/log/isfs/ptpd_record"

did:

root@titan2 tmp# /etc/init.d/ptpd2 stop
Stopping PTP server: ptpd2.

then,

root@titan2 tmp# /etc/init.d/ptpd start
Starting PTP V1 server: ptpd done.

checked times on LI-7550s and they seem, good, ie in the logs I see:

Jan 13 03:24:00 mDNSResponder: mDNSPlatformRawTime went backwards by 42492 ticks; setting correction factor to -857926051

[can't access log for LI-7200 since I don't have root access, but time is good!]

on LI-7200 time might have a jump in the file:

824: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 29-Feb-2016 11:28:13 MST, site visit on Friday, January 2nd, 2015 (SpB, DB)
Friday, January 2nd, 2015 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB, DB

Purpose of visit: download logger data.

Weather: Warm and clear.  Extremely cold earlier
in the week, but this is not bad.  Low winds.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Prius.

* Dave Bowling was working on the TGA.

---------

* Span cylinder at 500 psi. N2 at 1200 psi.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 44 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 55 cm
               farthest probe = 55 cm

* the LI-7500A OP1 power light was blinking on/off...it seems like the
  battery is losing power?  I noticed the power connection inside the
  LI-7550 box was loose...in the late afternoon, I disconnected it
  from power using the connector inside the LI-7550 box (hopefully,
  the battery can fully recover).

* from 14:55-15:00 MST, adjusted flow in LI-6262 span/n2 gases.

* moved the wingscape "eastcam" (which never seemed to work very
  well!) so that it is now downward-looking at the CSATs and trees.

* downloaded photos from wingscape cameras:

823: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 29-Feb-2016 11:23:35 MST, site visit on Thursday, December 11th, 2014 (SpB)
Thursday, December 11th, 2014 Visit:
------------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: setup the REBS T/RH sensors, download
logger data.

Weather: Quite warm and very sunny.  There has not been any
snow in the past week.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* Moose tracks on the trail.  Also looked like the moose were foraging
  in the creekbed (for willows?) by Como Creek.

* Ed Swiatek showed up with some long tubing (ran from top of tower to
  base).

* Dean Anderson passed by on his way to check USGS.

* should be my final visit of 2014!

---------

* Span cylinder at 690 psi. N2 at 1700 psi.

* moved cc329280 (N2) from tower to C1 (inside trailer)

* snow depths (didn't measure, but they were low):

              closest to tree = xx cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = xx cm
               farthest probe = xx cm


* adjusted regulator delivery pressure for N2 (lowered from around 22
  psi to 17 psi)

* at around 11:30 MST, re-set LI-7500A OP1 (seems to lose the network
  connection and usb archiving?)

* started running met_10.csi (needed to update connections to input
  channels, see channels list at start of met_10.csi):

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster      15601 Dec 11 15:29 met_10.csi*

REBS1 = sensor THP98002
REBS2 = sensor THP98004

* REBS T/RH wiring:

purple = ground
orange = +12V

diff   H = yellow     RH.mV.REBS
       L = green
diff   H = wht        T.air.REBS
       L = black
diff   H = gry        T.cavity.REBS
       L = blue

in AM416 these are connected as:

sensor THP98002
---------------
(block 1):
H1 = yellow  RH
L1 = green

H2 = white   T.air
L2 = black

(block 2):
H1 = unused
L1 = unused
H2 = grey    T.cav
L2 = blue

this is repeated in block 3/4 for sensor 2 (THP98004).
note: the T.air and T.cav sensors use the same voltage range so
they are compatible with eachother.

- for wiring from am416 to met logger used:

signals:

white = H1 diff (am416 com block) --> diff ch4 H
  red = L1 diff (am416 com block) --> diff ch4 L

green = H2 diff (am416 com block) --> diff ch5 H
black = L2 diff (am416 com block) --> diff ch5 L

power and controls: for power I cut the old 2m HMP sensor cable and
used that.  (I also noticed there is a spare power cable, with green
plug, going into the met logger box!)

red = +12V
black = ground
white = RES (am416) ---> C5 (on cr23x)
black = CLK (am416) ---> C6 (on cr23x)

[still need to get power for the aspiration fans!]

Subject: upping the samping of CSATs..

Hi Gordon,

Doing "ddn" and "dup" fixed the network issues due to changing the IP
of urquell yesterday.  thanks!

I was hoping to try and increase the sampling rate of the CSATs on the
tower...I think you mentioned that the main thing I need to modify is
the "rate" variable in:

/usr/local/isff/projects/NIWOT/ISFF/config/sonics.xml

on the viper/forestcam dsm...

ie:

        
            
            
            
            
            
            
                
                
                
                
                
                
                
                
            
            
        

So, I can just change from rate="20" to rate="30", then do "ddn/dup"?
Since the 30-Hz data are not oversampled (as far as I can tell from
the CSAT manual) do I also need to change,

            

to false?  Is there anything else that I need to change?

Also, tomorrow I plan to add the CSAT from Campbell to the viper
DSM...it will be running in a different mode than the other CSATs (ie,
controlled by the DSM)...so, should I just add another line to the xml
file like:

            
            

I also recall that you mentioned there was a way to make sure it
doesn't try to send any configs to the CSAT....can you remind me what
that option was again and where/how would I add that info to the xml
file?  I guess it will be fine if the tower CSATs are all outputting
data at 30-Hz and the Campbell one is outputting data at 20-Hz...

Here is the xml currently being used by the viper/forestcam:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/sean/sonics_141027.xml

Also, I just rebooted the dreamplug on campus...after the reboot, when
I tried to do dup I get the following error:

root@dreamplug-debian ~# dup
dsm: symbol lookup error: /usr/local/lib/libnidas_dynld.so.1: undefined symbol: SampleOutputStreamC1EPNS_4core9IOChannelEPNS2_25SampleConnectionRequesterE

root@dreamplug-debian ~# ck_xml /usr/local/isff/projects/NIWOT/ISFF/config/niwot.xml
ck_xml: symbol lookup error: /usr/local/lib/libnidas_dynld.so.1: undefined symbol: SampleOutputStreamC1EPNS_4core9IOChannelEPNS2_25SampleConnectionRequesterE

this is not that critical, but thought it might be meaningful to

822: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 29-Feb-2016 11:14:04 MST, site visit on Thursday, December 4th, 2014 (SpB, MG)
Thursday, December 4th, 2014 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB, MG

Purpose of visit: swap Zero Air Cylinder, check on power issues in
TGA shed, setup HMP sensors (never got to it).

Weather: Very calm with a threat of snow all day (that never happened).
Low clouds.  Quite warm for Dec!

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Prius.

* Duane took the snowcat to C1.

* met Maria Garcia from Utah (DB lab) who was updating a card in the TGA.
It seems that power in TGA shed might be ok?...

---------

* Span cylinder at 700 psi. ZeroAir at 120 psi.

* at around 14:00 MST, swapped ZeroAir cyliner with new N2 cylinder;
  old=cc140756 (Zero Air), new= cc316422 (N2)

* moved the zero air regulator back to trailer at C1 (it worked well).
* moved cc355203 (span) from C1 to tower (along fence)
* moved cc140756 (zero air) from tower to C1 (inside trailer)

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 18 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 27 cm
               farthest probe = 27 cm

* brought a heated inlet for the LI-7200 out to the tower, but never
  had time to swap it with current (unheated) inlet.  [left it in the
  TGA shed].

* tightened/checked some of the U-bolts for the CSATs.  The all seem to
  be holding up well (we have had some quite strong winds).

* checked voltage at lower outlets...it was at around 117 VAC.
  note:   4 circuits at tower,

   1. GFI outlet (picarro pump)
   2. lowest set of outlets
   3. outlets on 2nd level.
   4. all outlets above that....

* Maria accidentally disconnected the Picarro pump for a short time

* Maria updated the card in the TGA and this seemed like it might have
  fixed some issues they have been having with that system?...

* at 11:52 MST, re-set LI-7500A OP1 (seems to lose the network
  connection and usb archiving?)...I am suspicious about the charger
  connected to this battery.  When I disconnected it, the battery
  voltage went to near zero!  Attached a new charger and it seemed to
  come back to 12V (and OP1 was working ok)....not sure if battery is
  damaged or not (it's a new battery).

* swapped usb thumb drive on isffa (bigger drive)

* between 12-13 MST, swapped gelman filters on upper two prof
  inlets...the CO2 profile from the summer was very strange looking
  and possibly filters have been dirty??

* at around 15:00 MST, replaced battery charger for LI-7500A OP1 (as
  described above), also added new battery + charger (these are the
  ones that John Knowles brought out to the TGA shed) for UC logger.
  I want to make sure UC logger works all winter (if UC logger stops
  working not so critical)....

note, it is still resetting from time-to-time!?!

* as I was leaving, tried to get on network in TGA shed...it wasn't working
  and I noticed that the network cable labeled "From Tower" was diconnected.
  After plugging this back in, it all worked.

* batteries in wingscapes camera at snow probes were dead (didn't have time
  to replace them)...

* downloaded some wingscape photos (both cameras stopped working in
  late Nov!..maybe because it became very cold??)):

emails with  Michael Velgersdy from LI-COR about ptp/ntp:

Subject: Re: Questions about LI-7550...


Mike,

thanks very much for clarifications...i can try to install ptpd on
another system at the site and see if it can act as a ptp server to
replace the one which is going away...this week, I'll look into
this...if you have more thoughts (or find out more) about using ntp on
the LI-7550 please let me know...

on Friday, I had CU networking increase the firewall protection to the
LI-7550 instruments (this cuts down on the break-in attempts and you
might recall that I believe someone hacked into our LI-7550 last Feb
and crashed the system)...these "break-in" attempts fill the logs and
look like:

Oct 31 15:27:37 sshd[5173]: Failed password for root from 220.177.198.38 port 1284 ssh2

Oct 31 15:27:49 sshd[5175]: Failed password for root from 220.177.198.38 port 4989 ssh2

after increasing the firewall security, all of those sshd messages
went away, but a new message started showing up which is:

Oct 31 22:54:02 -- MARK --

I also see some messages like:

Nov  3 12:28:50 mDNSResponder: Correcting TTL from  120 to 4500 for    9 HP LaserJet 400 M401dne (B5134C)._ipp._tcp.local. (47) RDLen 9: �

I tried to google info about the "mDNSPlatformSendUDP got error
101"....but couldn't find anything that useful...it seems like
mDNSResponder is related to something by apple/itunes that runs in
windows/bonjour??  ie:

http://www.groovypost.com/howto/groovytip/what-is-mdnsresponder-exe-and-why-is-it-running/

any ideas why these messages are showing up?  The time on the LI-7550
seems to be fine when checked versus the NIST clock (so I think the
ptpd is still keeping the time accurate)...

thanks!

                                                 SpB.

Sean,

The processor in the 7550 is an OMAP with an ARM core.  It is not an x86
processor like you have in your computer.  When you cross-compile, you
compile code on one architecture like the x86 and target another
architecture.  The tool chain is everything you need to compile everything.

I would be hesitant to run NTP since we are already running PTP.  We have
the control loop with gas sampling and the clock working and tested.  I
can do a little research to see it does not cause any problems.

Mike




821: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 08-Feb-2016 14:59:30 MST, site visit on Friday, November 21st, 2014 (SpB)
Friday, November 21st, 2014 Visit:
----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, connect CSI csat 0328 to
viper DSM.

Weather: Winter finally arrived.  Ground is snow covered (maybe 4-5"?), but
it was relatively warm (near freezing) and only gusty at times (calm in
the afternoon).

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep

* Duane (and Bear) gave me a ride from MRS to the 2nd gate. (walked
  from there).

---------

* Span cylinder at 750 psi. ZeroAir at 460 psi.

* moved cc153282 (N2) from C1 to tower (along fence)
* moved cc153241 (zero air) from tower to C1 (inside trailer)

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 14 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 18 cm
               farthest probe = 19 cm

* brought down a 16Gb thumb drive for partitioning (to use with
  isffa/titan).

* the two fire extinguishers at the site are:

  - in trailer at C1:  Kiddie dry chemical extinguisher (date was from 1998)
  - at tower in TGA shed:  "First Alert", model FE3A40GR

* grounded the CR23x logger that is collecting tree accel data.

* started ops73, added campbell sci CSAT3 sn0328 to the viper/forestcam
  DSM (/dev/ttyS11).  Ed, setup the RS232 output from the CSAT3.

* the new data system has been running well...

* re-measured the distances between CSAT levels...it's:  183.5 cm
  (need to get lowest CSAT to ground, then everything else should
   come from that)...

* rebooted LI-7500a OP1 (at mini-tower)...this fixed the network issue
  and it then started re-archiving the data on the usb drive.
  [followup: as of Monday morning 11/24, the connection was down
  again??  Perhaps this is a power issue?  Should replace the battery
  charger].

* the camera pointed to the east still did not seem to be
working!...downloaded other photos and these are in
/data3/photos_webcam_mark/ as:

* moved the camera from como creek over to the snowtemp probes...the
  straps holding it there probably need to be cleaned up.

* the battery in the MRS logger pcmcia card for the MCR1 card reader
  was dead!  (should replace both batteries in both cards).  Note,
  battery in the card with "*works 12/2012" written on it was replaced
  on 12/1/2014 on campus and worked with PC there).

* downloaded logger data (note:  now putting logger data in
  /data3/backup_russter2/data_logger/):

820: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 08-Feb-2016 14:54:42 MST, site visit on Thursday, November 6th, 2014 (SpB. ES, MR, JK, +)
Thursday, November 6th, 2014 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB, ES, MR, JK, +

Purpose of visit: change met logger output

Weather: There was a little bit of snow on the ground.  It was
warm and sunny with some wind gusts.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep

* Dean was finishing up the Methane system, John K was moving some
liquid N2, Mark was adding new accelerometers, Ed S. was working on
the CSATs (busy day up there).

---------

* Span cylinder at 900 psi. ZeroAir at 700 psi.

* tried to mount the WD usb disk (for russter2 backup) and it failed
to mount..after a reboot, it could mount.  (copying files is SLOW!)

* fixed up the tape and straightened the snow temp probes.

* downloaded logger data:

* started ops72 which takes into account several changes:

  - changed the output of the tree accels (dropped sensor2 which is
    broken and also no longer outputting the battery voltage).

-rwxr-xr-x 1 sburns aster  3002 Nov  6 12:13 mark_02.csi*

  - removed RH1.3m from the MET logger (it's been broken for a long
    time)...added output from the REBS T/RH sensors, but didn't have
    time to hook them up (note, I needed to modify which control ports
    the program uses..initially it was interferring with the cal of
    the EC system!):

-rwxr-xr-x 1 sburns aster 14917 Nov  6 12:52 met_09.csi*

  - added the battery voltage to the NCTC logger (so I have
    some way of keeping track of it)

* tested the snowtherm sensors on the NCTC logger and they did not
  seem to work...then, I had some trouble when I moved the sensor that
  DID work (Tir.1)...so, I've now switched the power for NCTC logger
  from the small power supply to the big battery in the campbell box
  on the platform (I'm also monitoring the battery voltage,
  "Vbatt_isffa".

* updated the root password for LI-7500A OP1/OP2 to the old quacker
  root password...need to check the firewall for these IPs...

818: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 08-Feb-2016 14:45:16 MST, site visit on Friday, October 24th, 2014 (SpB)
Friday, October 24th, 2014 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: finish setup up new data system..

Weather: warm and sunny, calm.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep

*

*

---------

* Span cylinder at 1000 psi. ZeroAir at 190 --> 950 psi.

* at 12:40 MST, swapped ZeroAir cylinder; old= cc153241 (zero air),
  new= cc140756 (zero air)

* swapped the network switches in the quacker box (so now the CU
network has the netgear 5-port switch, and the local network is the
older switch (with a broken port) has the other switch.

* added 5-port netgear switch to power box mid-tower (this is where
Ed can connect his new stuff).

* at approx 1500 MST, started data collection with 2nd LI-7500A (OP2)
  at 21.5m (on EOL CSAT3 boom)

  - swapped out the Campbell box from Stefan (currently in the TGA
    shed) and added a bigger box that could house a deep-cycle
    battery.  This battery is powering the LI-7500A, op2.

  - setup the LI-7550 box on the level below the 21.5m level.

  - attached the LI07500A with a nu-rail fitting (1" and 3/4") to a
    pipe that is right along the EOL CSAT boom (might want to arrange
    this better at some point).

* to connect the UC logger, I used the original cable from the UC
logger back to the quacker box...then using the old NCTC cable going
up to the platform/titan...the old NCTC cable is stuck INSIDE the NCTC
logger box (the cable won't fit through the hole!)...so I have this
connection made at the hole in the nctc logger box (one screw is
securing it).

* to connect the UCB logger: used the original cable from the UCB
logger to the quacker box, spliced a new section of cable to go from
the quacker box to the platform/dsm.  The light was flashing on the
short-haul modem so this seemed to work...but then I had the following
problems in niwot.xml:

* when I was setting up the UCB logger, this did NOT work:

816: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 08-Feb-2016 14:28:41 MST, site visit on Thursday, October 16th, 2014 (SpB)
Thursday, October 16th, 2014 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: followup on the IP address change on the cr5000 and
tga, start moving to new data system/titan.

Weather: warm and sunny in morning, breezy in afternoon.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up spb jeep.

* Duane found a lexar usb drive on the ground near the trailer...this
turned out to be from USGS/Dean.  left the thumb drive on the cr23x in
the trailer.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1100 psi. ZeroAir at 400 psi.

* in AM, replaced LI-7500A OP1 sensor cable from field update kit

* moved the GPS from serial port 7 to serial port 3.  Here is
the advice from Gordon:

Subject: Re: setup on isffa...

You change /etc/gps.conf, then stop/start ntpd, but you don't change the
XML.  The dsm process reads from the pseudo-terminal provided by tee_tty
which is started by /etc/init.d/ntpd.

minicom isn't usually needed, and you won't have much luck using minicom on
the port that tee_tty is also using.

I typically put a timeout on the CSAT3 sonics. Then if you swap sonics, the
dsm process will get a timeout on that port, and re-query the parameters
such as serial number from a sonic when it is pugged in.

* started moving serial cables from the quacker (at the base of the
tower) to the titan/isffa (on the tower platform).  After moving the
files, and updating the niwot.xml file on isffa the data_stats looks

815: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 08-Feb-2016 14:22:39 MST, site visit on Wednesday, October 15th, 2014 (SpB, JK, PB, DA, +)
Wednesday, October 15th, 2014 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB, JK, PB, DA, +

Purpose of visit: met john k. to change the IP addresses
on the cr5000 and tga, start moving to new data system/titan.

Weather: warm and sunny in morning, breezy in afternoon.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up spb jeep.

* Peter B was busy helping Dean (and other USGS volunteer) setup a
methane sensor.  They pulled out all the old glass volumes (these are
now in the trailer at C1).

* met John at the trailer in morning.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1100 psi. ZeroAir at 400 psi.

* cal cylinder on loan from D. Bowling (cc185237); put at tower base

* brought up two spanking new deep-cycle batteries (hopefully to fix
the power issues with the LI-7500A (OP1)).  John hauled these to the
tower in ATV (atv had a near-flat at end of day!)...

* in AM, installed new battery to power the LI-7500A (OP1).  When I
put in the new battery, I also swapped the charger (to the other new
one from Yusua).

* hauled most of the batteries in the trailer back to Boulder for load
testing at battery shop....about 5 failed and I brought two back that
were deemed to be "ok".  Need to keep batteries on a battery
"maintainer" or else they will not last long!!

* downloaded some wingscape photos:
-rw-r--r--  1 sburns aster 2286796800 Oct 16 09:25 photos_cloudcam_west_141015a.tar
-rw-r--r--  1 sburns aster 1052108800 Oct 16 09:27 photos_cloudcam_west_141015b.tar
-rw-r--r--  1 sburns aster  335912960 Oct 16 09:32 photos_tower_base_141015.tar

* we moved the cable going to the 8-port switch in the TGA shed from
the local (ie, 10.0.0.x) network to the CU network...then we moved the
network cable that was going to picarro to this same switch.  Now the
entire shed is on the CU network (and there are two extra network
cables going to the shed that are not connected...but could be used if
needed).

* John and I were able to change the IP info for the cr5000...the info
was actually in the NL100....connect to this with the CSI device
configuration utility (follow instructions there).  This worked.
Note, the dev config utility can be found via loggernet (I have an older
version, that worked)....

* we ran into trouble when trying to change the TGA IP address..in the
process it lost the mac address of the TGA.  Therefore, it didn't work
on the network (I could ping it from russter2, but not
campus/urquell).  There were many email exchanges with Maria in Utah
and we could not figure it out....we also used the toughbook laptop
from MRS (with a newer version).  To make a long story short, the TGA
manual had an error (see note from 10/16).  When we left, we added a
serial cable to the far end of the TGA so we could access it without
taking off the cover.



814: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 08-Feb-2016 14:13:58 MST, site visit on Saturday, October 11th, 2014 (SpB)
Saturday, October 11th, 2014 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: move titan to the tower, setup REBS T/RH
sensors, check on OP-1.

Weather: sunny, breezy, some remants of snow from 2 days ago.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up spb jeep.

* Theo and Keith (Noah grad students) were working on the snow depth
sensors...

* Ed and Erin (and a pack of dogs) showed up to replace the EC155
body...it was apparently giving back a flag that the thermoelectric
cooler?  was bad...but didn't seem to be bad?

---------

* Span cylinder at 1100 psi. ZeroAir at 400 psi.

* need to test the old batteries in the trailer!

* the battery for the LI-7500A/OP1 seemed to be bad...when I checked
it, the battery charger had both lights flashing on/off (indicates a
problematic battery).  Replaced it with a different old battery (not
sure if this one is any better?!)...but files are being saved, ie:

* replaced the 5-port netgear switch (model fs 109) at the 10-m power
box with a 8-port netgear "prosafe" switch (model GS108E) that was in
the trailer (John Knowles borrowed and/or replaced this at some
point?)...one question: the 5-port switch has a grounding connector in
the back, but the 8-port switch does not...does this matter?

* downloaded logger data:

the only thing coming into it is the GPS??

813: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 08-Feb-2016 14:10:31 MST, site visit on Tuesday, October 7th, 2014 (SpB)
Tuesday, October 7th, 2014 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: swap the LI-7200, setup LI-7500A (OP2)
and REBS T/RH sensors.

Weather: Warm, calm and sunny.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU jeep...before going up, went to campus and got CSI
enclosure, REBs T/RH, dessicant, things bought at McGuckins; then went
to NCAR and picked up other supplies (split loom, cameras, network
cables, thermocouple wire).

* John Knowles was there (brought down ln2 dewar to snowshed for him).

---------

* Span cylinder at 1200 psi. ZeroAir at 500 psi.

* moved two older cylinders from the trailer down to the snowshed:

cc264923      N2    trlr/inside    (used for cals on 100924).  moved to trlr, 7/1/10, retired on 6/15/10 (250 psi), started on 3/30/10 at 2100 psi.  brought from campus on 9/16/09, moved to tower on 3/30/10.
cc21257      span   trlr/inside    1040 ppm  (airgas, from HYDRA experiments), pressure = 1000 psi?

* replaced the LI-COR-borrowed LI-7200/LI-7550 (AIU-1110, sn 72H-0479)
  with those from AmeriFlux (AIU-1250, sn 72H-0539)

* hauled two of the REBS T/RH sensors and AM416 to the tower (currently in shed)

* downloaded data from the cameras:

-rw-r--r--  1 sburns aster 2376693760 Oct  8 00:04 photos_cloudcam_northeast_141007.tar
-rw-r--r--  1 sburns aster  962990080 Oct  7 23:54 photos_cloudcam_west_141007.tar
-rw-r--r--  1 sburns aster  844001280 Oct  7 23:43 photos_tower_base_141007.tar

* note:  the quality of the photos wit the new cameras doesn't seem
quite as good as with old cameras?  check that focus is correct?

* adjusted the position of cloudcamWEST (pointed up more)

* tried to leave all the settings EXACTLY as they were on the old
setup (for now, still saving the CSAT data).

transition from old LI-7200 to new LI-7200:

* note: the LI-7550 senses which sensor (either LI-7200 or LI-7500) is
attached and then adjusts software accordingly.

* there was a lot of moisture/condensation in the LI-COR flow module
box...I'm guessing this is because the box is airtight and I last
opened it when the humidity was higher...now, the temp drop and all
that moisture condensed.  ADD dessicant bag to the flow module box!!

* note: there appear to be spikes in the LI-7200 analog co2
signal...make sure the spikes are not in the usb 20-Hz data
[followup: usb data seem ok, no spikes]...

* downloaded logger data (still need files):

;
; met_09.csi (from met_07.csi), added REB T/RH sensors with AM416 mux.
; connected to diff ch4.

812: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 08-Feb-2016 14:03:41 MST, site visit on Friday, September 26th, 2014 (SpB)
Friday, September 26th, 2014 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: finished LI-7500A (OP1) installation,
put up wingscapes cameras.

Weather: Warm, calm and sunny.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU prius

* added more split-loom to the section of fiber cable near como creek
  (there is a bit more to finish).

---------

* Span cylinder at 1290 psi. ZeroAir at 700 psi.

* using a new battery which is in an action-packer between the UC/UCB
loggers and the other "battery" action-packer.  I have a 900 mA
charger connected to this battery...a slightly more powerful charger
would be better!

* some things to-order/buy:


  On-line:
  --------
  - greater than 1.5 A charger  x, purchased via amazon on 9/30/14
  - 3/4"x3/4" nu-rail crosses...plus something to go from horiz boom to vertical boom
  - 1" split loom

  Purchases via amazon on 9/30/14 (total of $305):
  -----
  2 Yuasa YUA1201501 Smart Shot Battery Charger (1.5 Amps)
  Wire Loom Tool for 3/4" - 1"
  American Terminal SL1000-100 1-Inch Split Loom Tubing
  2 JEFA Tech Outdoor Shielded Cat5e Assembly - 25 Feet - TOUGHCable Connectors
  2 50ft Cat5e Outdoor Waterproof Ethernet Cable Direct Burial w/Shielded Connectors 50 ft (PURE COPPER)

  Purchases via nu-rail:
  ----------
  3 of the 3/4"x3/4" nu-rail offset crosses (I borrowed one from the lab and it's at the site).


  JB Saunders:
  ------------
  - some AC-DC adapters for the REBs T/RH fans:  12VDC, 0.3 A (1.6 W)

  McGucks:
  ------------
  - one more action-packer (+ several bungee straps)
  - short(er) extension cords
  - aluminum  foil?
  - some kind of cube/ball for plugging stuff in at upper electrical box
  - adj wrench (at least 1") for LAB!

* setup the wingscape cloudcams NORTHEAST and WEST...

* was able to connect to LI-7500A via the serial cable (this only
worked once, for a short period?)...at that time, I changed the
settings so the IP is the one used by russter2pfp....I should check
why I couldn't connect again via serial cable?  (perhaps the serial
port on the latitude podocarp laptop?)

* it should be using ptp for the time-keeping...how to check this??

  -- also, want to set the root password on OP1...

* started ops70 and now running uc_06.csi on UC logger (to ingest the
  LI-7500A data).

* sample rate at 20-hz, filter at 10-Hz.  An analog co2 and h2o signal
is being ingested by the UC logger into the quacker data system.

* settings for DAC:

* at 14:30 MST, changed range of LI-7200 co2 (DAC) from

  LI-7500A, DAC1 co2 umol/mol    0 V = 360 ppm  -->  5V = 450 ppm
            DAC2 h20 mmol/mol    0 V = 0 mmol/mol  -->  5V = 30 mmol/mol

* also, I noticed the "delay time" settings for the LI-7200 and LI-7500A
were different..

LI-7200, delay time interval = 12, DAC delay= 252 ms
LI-7500A, delay time interval = 0, DAC delay= 172 ms

* here is what else I found:

811: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 08-Feb-2016 13:57:21 MST, site visit on Friday, September 19th, 2014 (SpB)
Friday, September 19th, 2014 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: fixed LI-7200 inlet filter,
swapped REBs Q*7.1 dome,

Weather: Warm and sunny.  Some clouds and some
breezes.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep

* Duane was working at C1.  The fall aspens were in prime
  color!

* added more split-loom to the section of fiber cable near como creek
  (there is a bit more to finish).

---------

* Span cylinder at 1300 psi. ZeroAir at 830 psi.

* from 11-11:45 MST, replaced domes on REBS Q*-7.1 Rnet sensor

* cut the LI-7200 inlet tubing from 100cm down to 80cm.  As part of
  testing found:

  - with no inlet connected, flow drive = 15%
  - with tubing, but not filter, flow drive= 39%
  - with tubing + filter, flow drive= 63%
  - then I reconnected the water trap and the flow drive dropped to 53%
    (not sure why it went down with the trap attached??)

  - left it with the filter and water trap both connected.


* downloaded logger data:

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster  1125090 Sep 19 13:23 soil9_19.dat*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     1053 Sep 19 13:28 soil9_19b.dat*

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster   183527 Sep 19 14:47 ucb9_19.dat*


* setup LI-7500A (OP1) at the mini-tower...everything is there and now
  I just need a battery and charger!  Tried to add the new battery and
  it did not boot up cleanly...I could not connect via the serial
  cable, but I could connect via the internet (not using a fixed IP
  address)...and had the following problem:

  [see ~/tower_log.txt for details!]
 

* looked at the am416 mux connected to the soil logger..notes:

  cr23x   wire    am416
  C2     green    RES
  C3    sky blue  CLK
  G      black     GND  <----to terminal strip to power sensors
  12V     red     12V  <--

snippet of code from soil_03.csi:

  ; turn on the mux this is RES on mux

  37:  Do (P86)
   1: 42       Set Port 2 High

  ; multiplexer loop

  38:  Beginning of Loop (P87)
   1: 0        Delay
   2: 3        Loop Count

  ; loop index multiplied by 3 so that 3 readings
  ; measured by instruction are advanced 3 locations
  ; each pass thru measurement loop

  39:  Step Loop Index (P90)
   1: 3        Step

  ; C3 is the CLK

  40:  Do (P86)
   1: 73       Pulse Port 3

  41:  CS616 Water Content Reflectometer (P138)
   1: 3        Reps
   2: 8        SE Channel
   3: 17       All reps use C7
   4: 83    -- Loc [ p616_1    ]
   5: 1.0      Mult
   6: 0.0      Offset

  ; Loop end
  42:  End (P95)

  ; turn off mux and dis-enable probes
  43:  Do (P86)
   1: 52       Set Port 2 Low

-------------------------------------

* to buy at JB saunders??  (can't recall what I need?)

  - wires that are long and thick enough...
  - need a new action packer?

* email exchange with Dave Bowling to change network setup:

this is the current setup:

Hi Sean,

(copying Maria Garcia here)

Thanks - hopefully this will improve things.

Currently I only have the TDL and CR5000 at these addresses:

[deleted!, see ~/tower_log.txt]

The others are unused (at least by me).

Please coordinate with Maria when you're ready to make the
changes (and cc me)

Hi Dave,

I wanted to let you know that we are going to make some changes to the
network at NIWOT sometime in the next few months.  Right now your
instruments are on the tower network (10.0.0.x), but it might make
more sense to put everything in the TGA shed directly on the CU
network (198.11.18.x).  Which is what the Picarro is using.  Also,
when people are at the site it will be easy to connect to the outside
world.

For your instruments, we would like to give them each a fixed IP
address that is accessible from outside of CU.  You are currently able
to do this, but I believe this uses some form of IP tunneling to reach
your instruments (and I know your instruments are physically on the
10.0.0.x network).

Right now, I see your instruments are connected as:

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 Visit:
--------------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: new program in isffa, adjust CSAT
positions.

Weather: Warm and sunny.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep

* met Oren!

* added more split-loom to the section of fiber cable near como creek
  (need to finish this).

---------

* setup LI-7500A (OP1) at the mini-tower...everything is there and now
  I just need a battery and charger!

* did some fine-tuning to the CSAT orientations:

level 14 ------ TOP  (upward-looking PAR sensor)

level 13 ------ 25.5m, Radiation Sensors            port 10, sn 0855

level 12 ------ 23.35m, CSI boxes (for CPEC200)     [NA]

level 11 ------ 21.5m CSAT3 (main flux level)       [NA]

level 10 ------ 19.65m, LI7550 boxes (on SE side)   port 9, sn 0673

level  9 ------ 17.8m, cr23x (FAST)                 [NA]

level  8 ------ 15.95m, webcams                     port 8, sn 0540  <--- not in logs?

Level  7 ------ 14.1m, prop-vane                    port 7, sn 1121

level  6 ------ 12.25m, ATI boom                    port 6, sn 0673

level  5 ------ 10.40m, cr23x (MET) + rain gauge    [NA]

level  4 ------ 8.55m, power box + platform         port 5, sn 1119

level  3 ------ 6.70m, LI-6262 box                  [NA]

level  2 ------ 4.85m, LI-6251 box                  port 2, sn 1117  <--- not in logs?

level  1 ------ 3.00m, power                        [NA]

level  0 ------  Ground, slighly elevated due to concrete pad.

* from mid-strut to mid-strut the short side of the tower is 127.5 cm.

* uploaded Nr1_fast_0_0_03.cr3 to CR3000 (now isffa is ingesting
  CR3000 data correctly).  Email about this:

 Hi Ed,

 the DSM is correctly reading in the data from the CR3000 with the
 lower baud rate...I'm now seeing:

* rebooted isffa...it took a while to come back up, but I could
eventually log in again....noticed that the xml had something using
/dev/ttyS7 (which is what the GPS is using).  Commented that entry out
and rebooted...it came up with the GPS working...now data_stats from

809: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 21-Dec-2015 11:10:31 MST, site visit on Saturday, September 13th, 2014 (SpB, PT, JB)
Saturday, September 13th, 2014 Visit:
-------------------------------------
At the site: SpB, PT, JB

Purpose of visit: get the wingscape cameras working, swap
serial cable ouput of isffa...

Weather: Warm and sunny.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Jeep Cherokee.

* a short late afternoon visit.  Jia visits the tower!

* lots of hunters going up the road (it's hunting season).

---------

* the blower for the LI-7200 was still at 100% (with zero flow).
Tried to bypass the water trap...didn't help.  Decided to turn off the
pump (not risk damaging it---need to ask LI-COR if running the blower
at 100% is harmful?).  Here is the reply from Jiahong about this:

> Hi Sean:

>  Thank you for the data. When the flow drive reaches 100%, it is

> long the motor could last under 100% motor drive before being burned
> out.
>


* swapped batteries on the cloud cam--now running every 5 minutes.

* downloaded photos from the tower base cam:

-rw-r--r-- 1 sean mmm  421478400 Sep 15 09:11 photos_tower_base_140913.tar

* swapped /dev/ttyS8 (cr3000) with
          /dev/ttyS5 (cr23x, pb)

the old xml is:

-rw-rw-rw-    1 10968    122         18979 Sep 12 18:19 /usr/local/isff/projects/NIWOT/ISFF/config/niwot_old.xml

the new xml is:

-rw-rw-rw-    1 10968    122         18979 Sep 12 18:19 /usr/local/isff/projects/NIWOT/ISFF/config/niwot.xml

  Kurt, tomorrow I'll bring by the 5 empty CSAT suitcases, pulley,
  webbing, and set screws.  I still have several CSAT bolts (for the
  head) which I will return later.

  thanks for all your help in making this happen!

807: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 21-Dec-2015 11:07:16 MST, site visit on Wednesday, September 10th, 2014 (SpB, JK)
Wednesday, September 10th, 2014 Visit:
--------------------------------------
At the site: SpB, JK

Purpose of visit: swap inlet filter, finish installing booms and CSATs

Weather: Calm and warm with big clouds.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Jeep Cherokee.

* met John Knowles at MRS at 9am.

---------

* Span cylinder at ? psi. ZeroAir at ? psi.

* stopped at snowmobile shed and moved two co2/air cylinders to
  the trailer:

cc153444      span  trlr/inside    moved to trailer on 9/10/14 (barcode, app149) airgas= 400.9 ppm
cc355203      span  trlr/inside    moved to trailer on 9/10/14 (barcode, bcz154) airgas= 404.9 ppm

* John helped with hauling the last 5 booms up the tower

* Before we did anything, swapped the boom at the very top
  level...this boom now has the cradle just before the extention so we
  could shorten the boom and put the CSAT on this other cradle.  The
  booms with the "mid-way" cradle are around 4.5m long.

* Was able to get 3 more CSATs installed and connected to the
  viper DSM.

* from around 16:00-15:00 MST, swapped out the nupro filter for the
  LI-6262 inlet.

* downloaded logger data:

Hi All,

I plan to take the remaining CSATs up to the site tomorrow
(Monday)...I'll be by EOL sometime between 9-9:30am to get
them...Kurt, I'll see if I can find you at around that time...

I won't put them on the tower until Wed so if they don't all fit in
the vehicle, I'll take the rest with me on Wed....

 - connected the ouput to /dev/ttyS8
 - while checking the xml, noticed that /dev/ttyS8 is being used, ieL

root@titan2 root# fgrep tty  /usr/local/isff/projects/NIWOT/ISFF/config/niwot.xml
                id="20" height="1m" devicename="/dev/ttyS3">

                id="60" height="" devicename="/dev/ttyS8">

 - so modified the xml to be (which is consistent with xml on urquell?),

  root@titan2 root# fgrep tty  /usr/local/isff/projects/NIWOT/ISFF/config/niwot.xml
                id="20" height="1m" devicename="/dev/ttyS3">

Sunday, August 31st, 2014 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: Finish the install CSATs/DSM.

Weather: Cloudy from the get-go.  Some breaks as the various
storm systems passed by.  Very mixed conditions.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up the Bonnie (found a nice dry parking spot, right next
to the new MRS building).

* a huge scat on the road just below C1 (looked to be mt lion and
was still quite smelly)....

---------

* Span cylinder at ? psi. N2/ZeroAir at ? psi  (both seem to be ok)

* finished setting up the DSM (mounted to the tower with uni-strut)

* downloaded the camera images looking at the tower (need to check
  time/date stamp??):

* where is the 2nd CSAT (sn 0677)?  (maybe this doesn't show up in the
  logs because it was not connected when I first powered on the
  DSM?)...

* GPS is "floating" above the DSM box

* the upper CSAT is sn 0855 on /dev/ttyS10 at 25.5m

* added the 2nd CSAT is sn 0677 on /dev/ttyS9 at the level below the
  21.5m level.

* everything appears to be working (however, I forgot to connect the
  voltage monitor to the DSM), ie:

804: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Wed 26-Aug-2015 10:54:04 MDT, site visit on Friday, August 29th, 2014 (SpB, PB, P)
Friday, August 29th, 2014 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB, PB, P

Purpose of visit: Install CSATs on loan from NCAR.

Weather: Sunny in the morning.  Rain/T-storm in the late afternoon.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU suburban.  Met Peter at NCAR and we loaded the booms,
  DSM, and CSATs.

* Peter (from ft collins) was collecting and he helped carry a load
  of stuff to the tower.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1400? psi. N2/ZeroAir at 1200? psi

* NCAR had two CSATs (sn?) that had gone through the calibration
  chamber and we took with us.

* assembled the booms at C1 then hand-carried them to tower (3 or 4 at a
  time).  They are approx 4m in length and come in two sections.

* hand-carried the DSM to the tower (now "forestcam").

* setup a pulley and rope system to haul the booms up the tower (we
  used a 100' section of rope spliced with a 50'? section (this is the
  green rope that lynette, et al used for the PAR project).

* hauling booms with rope/pulley worked well--peter was on the ground
  and I was up on the tower.

* had lunch back at C1.

* Forgot the bolts for mounting the DSM to the uni-strut at C1 so Peter
  went back to get these---in the meantime, the weather changed dramtically
  and as we were trying to setup the DSM, a t-storm moved in.  We brought
  everything back to the C1 and stopped for the day.  We only had two booms
  installed on the tower.

* stuff borrowed from NCAR (in addtion to booms, CSATs, and DSM):

  - CMI pulley (as of 9/2, still at site)
  - battery box, with charging stuff  (deployed at the tower)

  --> stuff returned to Kurt/Gordon on week of 9/2:
  - rope (Kurt, never used, the two sections we had at the tower worked)
  - connector for the battery pack (Kurt)
  - network cable (Gordon, approx 50')
  - small plastic bag of set screws (Kurt, extras for booms)
  - Keyspan usb-to-serial adapter + usb/serial cable (Gordon)
  - short Aluminum adaptor section, removed from one boom (Kurt)
  - two empty CSAT suitcases (sn 0677 and sn 0855)

* need to get:

  - correctly sized plates for the square u-bolts
  - slightly longer u-bolts (to mount booms to the tower)
  - a deep socket set (3/8", 7/16", 5/8")

* also, need to order cameras from wingscapes!

* CSAT3 suitcases are currently in my office at NCAR.  (store in
  the dave bowling shed?)

Friday, August 22nd, 2014 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, swap N2 cylinder,
change LI-6262 Nupro inlet filter (never did this).

Weather: overcast and cool in the morning.  Heavy rain/hail
storm starting at around 2pm.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU prius.

* Duane was working.  Three trucks from NEON came down from the ridge
in the middle of the rain storm.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1490 psi. N2/ZeroAir at 100 psi---> 1300 psi

* at 13:00 MST, swapped N2 cylinder with ZeroAir cylinder;
  old=cc329280, new= cc153241 (zero air)

* LI-7200 Heater at 0.20 A at 17.9 V, changed to 0.18 A at 15.6 V

* measurements of the tower levels:

-- it is approx 185 cm between levels..however it seems like it should
be 2m between levels?  (need to double-check this!?)

If 1.85m spacing, then very top of tower is 14*1.85m = 25.90 m
If 2m spacing, then very top of tower is 14*2m = 28m.

- the good horiz strut (long side, facing toward the SW) to use is
approx 94cm above the level platform at each level (heights shown are
from these struts).

level 14 ------ TOP  (upward-looking PAR sensor)

level 13 ------ 25.5m, Radiation Sensors            [ok, straight]

level 12 ------ 23.35m, CSI boxes (for CPEC200)     [maybe, angle]

level 11 ------ 21.5m CSAT3 (main flux level)       [no]

level 10 ------ 19.65m, LI7550 boxes (on SE side)   [ok, either orientation]

level  9 ------ 17.8m, cr23x (FAST)                 [ok, angle]

level  8 ------ 15.95m, webcams                     [maybe, straight only]

level  7 ------ 14.1m, prop-vane                    [ok, either orientation]

level  6 ------ 12.25m, ATI boom                    [ok, need to move boom]

level  5 ------ 10.40m, cr23x (MET) + rain gauge    [messy]

level  4 ------ 8.55m, power box + platform         [ok, angle]

level  3 ------ 6.70m, LI-6262 box                  [ok, angle]

level  2 ------ 4.85m, LI-6251 box                  [ok, angle]

level  1 ------ 3.00m, power                        [ok, angle]

level  0 ------  Ground, slighly elevated due to concrete pad.


* to mount the CSAT boom at an angle (connected to 2 points on
  the tower) will require about 1.7m of boom.

* these are from the NCAR tower (niwot02)..which I think is the same
  as the AmeriFlux tower:
                                  measurement

   ----------------------     ------      -----------
   Struts--Outer Diameter       2.125         5.39

   Vertical Spacing Between    33.27         84.5
   Struts (long side)

   Vertical Spacing Between    37.40         95.0
   Struts (short side)

   Horiz Distance between      67.52        171.5
   struts (long side)

   Horiz Distance between      48.82        124.0
   struts (short side)


* in fastpb18.csi, changed the time in sec to 1.5555 x 10^-4
(never saved program to urquell). it's only on the "other" dell laptop...

* downloaded the cloud cam (battery at 71%)...after two weeks, it fills
up half of a 16Gb SD card, ie:

Hi Max,

Did you visit the tower when you were in Colorado?  Yesterday I
noticed that the pump was off...I found that the extension cord that
goes to the picarro shed was disconnected...apparently this extension
cord is undersized for the amount of power it is using because where
they connect it's warm.  Though I had wrapped the connection in
electrical tape the warmth from the cord caused the tape to become
loose and the connection became compromised.

anyway, I reconnected it and put the cord in a position where it won't
have any stress on it (so even if the tape comes loose it won't slip
off).  Hopefully, it is working now...Is anyone from your group going
up to the site re-do the power connection from the bowling shed to the
picarro shed (ie, before winter sets in)?  I would recommend that the
power and network cable both get wrapped in some kind of protection so
that nothing can chew through them over the winter...

Can we transfer data files sometime next week?  Can you put the data
files collected since July 17, 2013 on an ftp site or should I setup a
site here in Colorado?

thanks!

* changed the jumper as per Gordon's suggestion (see below, note did
  this without powering down the titan).

Date:    Tue, 12 Aug 2014 10:08:55 MDT
To:      Sean Burns 
From:    Gordon Maclean 
Subject: Re: seems to be working now...

   The titan has a battery backed clock, using that nickel-sized watch
   battery in the middle of the card.  If you connect the JP1-BAT
   jumper (next to the battery) over the two pins, then the hardware
   clock runs.

   The hardware clock is only used at bootup time to set the system
   clock. Otherwise when the titan boots up, it thinks it is year
   2000, and must have the GPS or an ntp step-ticker server to set its
   clock. With the hardware clock, the system clock is pretty close
   (< 1 sec offset) on bootup and ntp can quickly fix it.

   I don't think it is connected on your titan, since it is showing year 2000:

   hwclock --show
   Fri Feb 18 22:16:45 2000Â  -1.005286 seconds
   I just set the hw clock from the system clock:
   hwclock --systohc
   And now it is close:
   hwclock --show
   Tue Aug 12 16:03:14 2014Â  -0.620256 seconds

   If you connect the battery, and check that the hwclock is close,
   then after the next powerfail, the system will come up with a good
   clock.  That battery will probably last 5 years, and if it dies, it
   doesn't cause any issue other than the system won't have a good
   clock at bootup again. Setting the jumper makes things a bit more
   robust, I think, in case the GPS dies too.

   I notice russter2's clock still isn't great. The offset doesn't
   seem to get below 5 ms, which I imagine isn't a big issue for you.

802: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Wed 26-Aug-2015 10:46:58 MDT, site visit on Wednesday, August 6th, 2014 (SpB)
Wednesday, August 6th, 2014 Visit:
----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, check on
network, move GPS serial channel.

Weather: A bit breezy and cloudy.  I didn't
arrive until late afternoon.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* stayed and listened to a lecture in the "megaron" at MRS.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1590 psi, N2 at 510 psi

* at approx 7:30 MST, network to C1 down (Kelly working with network
  folks, left it disconnected)..this was fixed on the morning of
  August 7th...apparently a speck of dust was on the end of the fiber
  optic line!

* LI-7200 heater at 0.18 A at 16.2 V (seems stable)

* downloaded logger data (note, no network connection, so brought down
  on usb thumbdrive):

* moved GPS signal input on titan2/isffa from /dev/ttyS4 to /dev/ttyS7.

  notes:  -- on Aug 7/8 setup ntp to use the GPS on the titan/isffa

          -- on Aug 11 setup russter2 to use the isffa for ntp (this caused
             some trouble in re-starting it, but it eventually seems to have
             worked).

* confirmed that the GPS was working (change_gps_serial_port.txt):

I have sensors hooked up to serial ports 3 and 5, ie:

 IOException: inet:127.0.0.1:49600: recv: Interrupted system call

and in the xml it has something configured for S1, S3, S5, and S7:

root@titan2 root# fgrep tty /usr/local/isff/projects/NIWOT/ISFF/config/niwot.xml
                id="10" height="" devicename="/dev/ttyS1">

                id="40" height="" devicename="/dev/ttyS6">

so, trying /dev/ttyS7,

801: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Tue 04-Nov-2014 13:01:23 MST, site visit on Saturday, August 2nd, 2014 (SpB)
Saturday, August 2nd, 2014 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: replace LI-7200 flow module, swap dessicant,
setup GPS in titan2/isffa.

Weather: Clear and sunny (all day).  A few clouds
down on the plains.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU prius.

*

---------

* Span cylinder at ?? psi, N2 at ?? psi


* a useful page about GPS/linux:

http://www.lammertbies.nl/comm/info/GPS-time.html

* cut a serial cable to read the GPS data into the titan2.

  Wiring:

cr3000     GPS16X-HVS                           Serial Cable
------     -----------------------              --------------
C7         pulse per second (gray)              DB9, pin 1 (red wire)
C8         RS-232 TxD (white)                   DB9, pin 2 (orange wire)
G          power control (yellow)               DB9, pin 3 (yellow wire, not connected)
5V         power (red)
GRND       ground/RS-232 signal reference,      DB9, pin 5 (blue wire)
           (black/blue/clear)

* tried to check the gps data with minicom, ie:

ls -lag /etc/minirc.*

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          212 Jun 26  2013 /etc/minirc.USB0
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          212 Jun 26  2013 /etc/minirc.USB1

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          212 Jun 26  2013 /etc/minirc.USB3
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          205 Aug  3 00:32 /etc/minirc._dev_ttyS4
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          212 Jun 26  2013 /etc/minirc.dfl
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          208 Jun 26  2013 /etc/minirc.gps0

* I must have done something wrong when saving the minicom
settings...here is what these look like:

root@titan2 root# more /etc/minirc.ttyS4
# Machine-generated file - use "minicom -s" to change parameters.
pr port             /dev/ttyS4
pu baudrate         9600
pu minit
pu mreset
pu mhangup
pu rtscts           No

root@titan2 root# more  /etc/minirc._dev_ttyS4
# Machine-generated file - use "minicom -s" to change parameters.
pr port             /dev/ttyS4
pu minit
pu mreset
pu mdialpre
pu mhangup
pu rtscts           Yes

for some reason the baud rate and other things are not saved
properly?  Also, I noticed there is something called:

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          208 Jun 26  2013 /etc/minirc.gps0

However, when I connected to the GPS with hyperterm it showed the data
coming out properly (see photo)...



800: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Tue 04-Nov-2014 12:57:18 MST, site visit on Sunday, July 27th, 2014 (SpB, KK)
Sunday, July 27th, 2014 Visit:
------------------------------
At the site: SpB, KK

Purpose of visit: download logger data, setup
PAR sensor, transport N2, setup LI-7200.

Weather: Clear in the morning, then threatened rain.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Jeep.  Met Katy at the tower.

* Katy Knoebl (Sac State) met me at the tower to help out.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1790 psi, N2 at 1200 psi

* added 25' of "split loom" to the fiber cable near the creek.  This
won't fix the problem, but maybe it will help.  The foam seems to be
working...

* added driver for usb-to-serial device to plumwood (dell laptop):

-rw-rw-r-- 1 sburns aster 4557103 Jul 27 10:09 Keyspan_Driver_for_USA-19HS_v3.7S_xp.zip

* at 12:30 MST, removed the two IR sensors that were not working
from the NCTC logger.

* from 12:10-12:20 MST, swapped LI-6262 nupro filter (the one in the
  box)

* at around 11:30 MST, installed KZ PAR-LITE at top of tower.

  Notes:  uses DIFF ch.9, this is "PAR2.up" in data system.

 wiring:

       white wire = H
       green wire = L
           shield = GND.

-------------------------------------------------
Info about KZ Par Lite sensor (from OSU/Berkley):

 % Sensor Temp during Cal:  23.45 +/- 0.10 degC

* ran a network cable out to the UC tower.

* tried to connect the LI-7550 box at the UC tower, but it was using
too much power and stressing out the UCB logger.  Need to have
independent battery/power to run this system.  Might need to start
replacing some batteries?...

* another attempt to make the CR3000 control the cr23x clock:

* adjusted the tower base cam so a photo is taken every 5min.

* adjusted the cloud cam so a photo is taken every 1min and changed
the resolution from "high" (2592x1944, resol 96x96) to "medium"
(1600x1200, resol 96x96).  In contrast, the camera I use at the site
has a image size of 1280x1024, resol 144x144.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1790 psi, N2 at 1200 psi

* the N2 cylinder appears to be holding pressure.  Need
  to find a fitting that is SS, not brass.

* moved cc197414 (n2) to tower

* at 11:30 MST, lowered LI-7200 inlet assembly heater power to 0.13 A
  at 10.4V (it was at 0.24 A, 21.4V??)

Purpose of visit:  move gas cylinders, move titan
to trailer, replace pump, clean LI-7200 cell...

Weather: Variable.  Threatened rain at times.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Jeep Cherokee.

* snow is completely GONE...the ground was dry and crispy.  Flow in
  creek is still strong, but no overflow on 2nd board crossing (probably
  need to do bridge repairs).

* attempted to do some cleanup of the trailer (brought the LAI-2000
  back to campus (cristol)

---------

* Span cylinder at 1850 psi. N2 at 1500 psi.

* picked up the following N2 cylinders from snow shed:

New N2 cylinders moved from MRS to C1 on 6/24/2013: cc316422 (apd783),
cc197414 (apv109), cc153282 (bpr896), cc41189 (apv113)

* brought down the following cylinders:

Cylinders moved to snowshed on 6/24/13:
--------------------------------------
cc175574      span                 airgas= 676.6 ppm; probably at 800 psi?
sg9162521     span                 airgas= 748.9 ppm; probably at 800 psi?
cc153468      span                 airgas= 5125 ppm
cc321228      span                 moved to trailer on 4/24/14, retired on 4/8/14 at approx 20 psi, started on 8/2/13 at 1900 psi, moved to tower on 8/2/13, moved from campus on 10/14/10, airgas=397.7 ppm
cc282352      span                 still at 200 psi?  retired on 5/17/10 (100 psi).  started on 12/19/09, 1590 psi; airgas= 397.7 ppm, cal (080604), 2150 psi, (398.76+397.42+397.36+397.54)./4= 397.77 ppm
cc176525      N2                   retired on 8/19/13 at 200 psi, started on 6/4/13 at 2100 psi, moved to tower (not sure when), moved to trailer 10/16/12
csg897717hpc  pure co2             SMALLER size (80A?)  pure co2  (full)

* from 11:30-12:30 MST, replaced the gast pump...ran it for about 20
  min disconnected from LI6262 (to flush out any junk in
  lines)....need to replace nupro filters soon...old pump is in the
  trailer and I haven't checked it yet to see what happened...

* at 14:30 MST, changed range of LI-7200 co2 (DAC) from
    0 V = 380 ppm  -->  0V = 360 ppm
    5 V = 430 ppm  -->  5V = 410 ppm

* screen shot of LI-7200 settings:

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster   208885 Jun 24 14:32 li7200_check_140624.png*

* at around 14:30 MST, adjusted power to LI-7200 inlet assembly
heater..it was actually very high when I opened the box (0.3 A, 27
V)...I lowered it to 0.23 A at 20.4V....but it didn't seem very
stable?...also, there was some water in the box...I couldn't see an
obvious way water got in there (condensation?)...

* For tree sway system:

  at 12:00:00 MST, removed SD card
  at 12:00:10 MST, inserted new SD card

* Moved the titan DSM from campus/cristol (where it was "titan2") up
to the trailer; dreamplug is now running in Cristol as "titan2".  In
trailer the titan is "isffa".  Ran a single wire from C3 on cr3000 to
C3 on cr23x.  fastpb15 is running on cr23xPB in the trailer, and made
sure the time is ok...this is the program that SHOULD do time updates
(meant to run it in free-form)....I meant to run fastpb17 which does
not do any time resets!  Didn't have time to check if the programs are
both running correctly....

------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, install T.ir
sensors

Weather: Sunny and warm.  There is lots of snow still at the
site, but it is melting fast.  Como creek is running high (no
ice dam under the bridge this year).  Melt is happening and
Aspens along the creek are just starting to break bud.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* followed moose tracks along the trail (they seem to be using our
trail).  Also, several large'ish scats along the trail---not sure
what, but might be a territory thing?

* met new guy (name?) that is assisting Kelly at MRS.

---------

* Span cylinder at 600 psi. N2 at 40 psi--> 1900 psi.

* at 13:00 MST, swapped N2 cylinder; old=cc176151, new= cc329280

* snow depths (taken from top of tape!)

              closest to tree =  35 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe =  57 cm
               farthest probe =  57 cm

* no power in the picarro shed (power cord severed, breakers
popped). Ran a new extention cord from bowling shed into picarro shed
to get power there (picarro now seems ok)

* swapped SD card in "clearing" webcam

* at 13:40 MST, tried to fix T.ir sensor #3 (seems to have a problem?)

* at 13:50? MST, adjusted flow rate in span/N2 of LI-6262 system

* turned on fans in both licor boxes and the quacker box

* was planning to swap dessicant bottles in LI-7200, but there were
no bottles in the trailer!  email discussion:

793: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 22-Sep-2014 09:47:40 MDT, site visit on Friday, May 16th, 2014 (SpB, PB)
Friday, May 16th, 2014 Visit:
------------------------------
At the site: SpB, PB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, install T.ir
sensors

Weather: Clear, sunny warm (and windy) in the morning, then the
clouds/fog moved in and it became calm in the afternoon.  It was a
light rain/snow mix when I departed.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Prius.

* stopped by campus to get T.ir sensors and McGuckins for some
supplies.

* signif snowstorm last weekend...covered the old snow
with a layer of mushy snow...

* met Peter Brown at C1, who is doing some micro-coring
of trees near the tower.

---------

* Span cylinder at 600 psi. N2 at 500 psi

* moved N2 cc329280 to tower, moved N2 cc264936 back to trailer

* snow depths (taken from top of tape!)

              closest to tree =  covered
       TP101 461 middle probe =  over highest mark!
               farthest probe =  over highest mark!

* at 11:27:00 MST, removed SD card from tree-sway system
  at 11:27:15 MST, inserted new SD card into tree-sway system

* re-measured distance from 21.5m CSAT3 to upper picarro inlet

* checked picarro system (seems ok)

* re-measured distance from 21.5m CSAT3 to upper picarro inlet
  - found the picarro inlet was 85cm below REBS sensor
  - found the picarro inlet was 280cm above the 21.5m CSAT3

  --> 2150cm + 280cm = 2430cm  (24.3 m)
  --> REBS sensor 2150+280+85= 2515cm (25.15 m)

* at 13:00 MST, moved 21.5m LI-7500 further out on boom

* at 13:11 MST, adjusted flow rate in span/N2 of LI-6262 system

* at 13:26 MST, slight adjustment to orientation of T.ir sensors

Thursday, April 24th, 2014 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, install T.ir
sensors

Weather:  There was a slight lull around mid-day, but it
was generally quite windy and sunny.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Prius.

* stopped by campus to get T.ir sensors and McGuckins for some
supplies.

* the snow is really starting to melt!  I could go up the powerline
hiking mostly on dirt.  Water is flowing down the road below C1, there
is open water at the bridge.  The snow on the trail to the tower is
still quite firm and fine for walking (or hauling cylinders).

* I was supposed to meet Peter Brown at C1, but he had to cancel at
the last minute.  Mark Raleigh and Ethan Gutmann (NCAR) both talked
about coming up, but neither made the trip...

---------

* Span cylinder at 980 psi. N2 at 900 psi

* moved span cc254814 to tower, moved span cc321228 back to trailer

* snow depths (taken from top of tape!)

              closest to tree =  covered
       TP101 461 middle probe =  over highest mark!
               farthest probe =  over highest mark!

* confirmed that the LI-7200 is still working well:

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster   545722 Apr 24 10:13 li7200_check_140424.png*

* for Ethan: swapped SD card (tree-sway system):

   at 12:27:00 MST, removed SD card
   at 12:27:30 MST, inserted new SD card

* to help Max: dug out picarro shed door, turned on fan and rebooted
  picarro system (there were some complaints during install of XP
  updates).

* at 16:30 MST, started ops69 (installed AM25T + T.ir sensors), new
  NCTC logger program (nctc_03.csi).

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     4705 Apr 24 18:10 nctc_03.csi*

* now the thermocouples T1-T4 are attached to the AM25T and the others
(T5-T12) were left as-is connected to the cr23x (need to check and see
if using the AM25T changes anything!)

* wiring up the AM25T was a bit slow and tedious...and when I first
set things up the T.ir snowtherm sensors were not working...perhaps
because there were multiple measurements taking place with those
sensors?  not sure why...also added the calibration information (Mult
and Offset) to the Diff measurement...ie, from nctc_03.csi:

; nctc_03.csi
; added an am25t mux + 3 snowtherm IR sensors
; sn 7791, diff ch2  (toward southwest, away from tower), shady side
; sn 7792, diff ch3  (toward northeast, toward/past tower), sunny side
; sn 7794, diff ch4  (down-looking)
; 4/24/14, spb.

;  snowtherm sensors

Hi Mark,

I was able to service the two cameras near the N Canopy tower, but not
the one on the main tower.  I fixed the date problem on NIWOT-02 and
you will see the date/time jump on the last photo, ie:

-rwxr-xr-x  1598386 Mar 11 13:30 MDGC3669.JPG*
-rwxr-xr-x  1582778 Apr  8 13:38 MDGC3670.JPG*

the batteries for NIWOT-02 was at around 15% so I swapped them...the
NIWOT-03 batteries were still at 99% (hopefully I was looking at the
correct value)...so I left them as-is.  I changed the program on
NIWOT-03 to start at 7 MST and end at 7 MST.  Probably should have set
it to start at 6 MST...

I have your SD cards (2 from the cameras, one that I never used) and
batteries in my office.  The four used AA batteries are outside of the
plastic bag...

can't recall if you are here today, but feel free to stop by and
get them anytime...

Hi Mark,

I have your SD cards and batteries in my office...I downloaded the
images from the SD cards to my computer which seems like the best way
that I can get them (i.e., rather than giving you a usb disk, etc).  A
few notes,

* for Niwot-01 (top of AmeriFlux tower) I didn't have much time to
spend...I couldn't read the screen, but I switched the SD card and
batteries (in the blind).

* For Niwot-02 (camera at the top of the N. Canopy tower), it looks
like the month was set to Feb rather than March.  Unfortunately, I
only looked at the day and time and didn't notice the month was off
when I was there...also, after putting in the new batteries, the power
level seemed low (I think around 60%)?

* For Niwot-03, everything seemed fine and the power level was still
over 90%.

I was actually rather out of it on Friday and probably should have
stayed in town...hopefully I didn't screw anything up too badly!


                                          SpB.

-----------------------------

* tried to power cycle to 2-d ati sensor, but didn't change things too
much, ie u is off-scale...need to check the data.

* at around 16:30 MST, dug out snow over the lowest inlet for co2
profile system.

* downloaded logger data (note, I forgot to reconnect the
serial cable for the NCARTC logger, doh!):

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB, MR

Purpose of visit: install a camera.

Weather:  Quite Windy with lots of blowing snow.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* still lots and LOTS of snow at the site.  had to dig out the
trailer, and am just stepping over the fence to reach the tower.

* Mark and Ethan were planning to meet me at the tower.  Ethan
cancelled and Mark was about an hour late.

---------

* Span cylinder at 300 psi.  N2 at 510 psi.

* snow depths (taken from top of tape!)

              closest to tree =  covered
       TP101 461 middle probe =  over highest mark!
               farthest probe =  over highest mark!

* Mark installed the camera looking at the clearing near the
N. canopy tower.

* there was snow on both the sub-canopy radiation sensors (I cleared
it off at around 11 MST).

* downloaded logger data:

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster   496767 Mar  5 11:19 tc3_5.dat*

this confirmed that the MRS PC card was working ok (or else the card
currently with the logger has a problem).

Friday, February 28th, 2014 Visit:
----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: check on LI-7200, download
logger data.

Weather:  Windy.  the snow is super deep!

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* lots and LOTS of snow at the site.  had to dig out the trailer, and
also lots of snow in the lower part of the tower.   brought snowshoes
which were useful.

* went to Dean's shed to look for a palm pilot (didn't find it).

---------

* Span cylinder at ? psi.  N2 at 600 psi.

* snow depths (taken from top of tape!)

              closest to tree =  covered
       TP101 461 middle probe =  over highest mark!
               farthest probe =  over highest mark!

* at approx 13:00 MST, reset the LI-7550 (this fixed the system, usb
  data being saved again).  The network connection at the tower seemed
  fine (ie, green light blinking, etc).  This was surprising.  I hit
  the "reset" button on the LI-7550 and it came back up.  After
  looking more at the system logs on the LI-7550, I suspect someone
  might have hacked into the system....they tried to do something
  which caused the system to lock up.  I asked the CU networking group
  to increase the firewall protection and now the logs are "quiet".
  No one outside CU can get past the firewall (or at least it is much
  more difficult).

* from 13:18-13:20 MST, adjusted LI-6262 cal gas flow rate

* downloaded logger data:

which were useful.

---------

* Span cylinder at 490 psi.  N2 at 900 psi.

* snow depths (taken from top of tape!)

              closest to tree =  covered
       TP101 461 middle probe =  over highest mark!
               farthest probe =  over highest mark!

* at approx 13:15 MST, decreased inlet heater power from 4.7 W (0.23A
at 20.3V) to 3.8 W (0.21A at 18.1 V).

* at approx 14:00 MST, replaced usb thumb drive in the LI-7550.  The
old thumb drive had shown some signs of problems (though it has worked
fine since Feb 5th)

* dug out and dragged back to pure N2 cylinder (small, steel) which
had been sitting along the trail for many years.  I'm not sure the
cylinder number but it looked like, csg897717hpc

----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: swap the 2.5m LI-7500s, download
logger data.

Weather: A bit windy and cool (but not too cold).  Dry.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU prius.

* drove up lefthand canyon for the first time since the
flood.  impressive damage!

* on the way back down there was a huge bull moose standing
by the side of the road.

* forgot to bring the usb-to-serial converter!

* had a delicious turkey burrito for lunch!

* still to do:

  - replace the vanes in the GAST pump

---------

* Span cylinder at 1000 psi.  N2 at 1300 psi.

* snow depths (taken from top of tape!)

              closest to tree =  19 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe =  25 cm
               farthest probe =  25 cm

* replaced 2.5m LI-7500 (sn 75H-0082) with PB spare (sn 75H-0062)

* rearranged the connections to the terminal strip in the fast logger (also
removed the electrical box that adds a bias/offset to the co2/h2o).  Note
h2o.ec was still using this, but co2.ec was no loger using it.  Moved:

ch1 co2.ec ------> ch2   % range of 5000 mV
ch2 t.ec --------> ch3
ch10 co2.ec155 --> ch4

ch3 p.ec --------> ch8    % range of 1000 mV
ch4 h2o.ec ------> ch9

So, the new channels are:

; CR23X Channel Number       Sensor
;         1
;         2                   a2 co2.ec     (5000 mV range)  red (H)/black

781: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 24-Feb-2014 12:40:41 MST, site visit on Tuesday, November 12th, 2013 (SpB, JH, SM)
Tuesday, November 12th, 2013 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB, JH, SM

Purpose of visit: add the analog cable to collect
analog CSAT3 data with the LI-7550.

Weather: perfect!

--------- Misc Notes:

* Jason Hupp from LI-COR was visiting; he drove up his rental and
Stefan drove up his van.

* we met at NEON prior to going to the site.

* still to do:

  - replace the vanes in the GAST pump

---------

* Span cylinder at 1150 psi.  N2 at 1700 psi.

* added analog out from CSAT3 into LI-7550, moved LI-7200 inlet closer
  to CSAT sampling volume (calculate new separation), returned LI-7200
  cables to Stefan

* Jason confirmed the 2.5m LI-7500 problem (appears to be related to
  the connector)

* here is the new configuration file of the LI-7550/7200:

Thursday, November 7th, 2013 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB, EG, M

Purpose of visit: ?

Weather: sunny and warm.  wave clouds.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* Ethan and Mark were at the tower to setup a camera.

* still to do:

  - replace the vanes in the GAST pump

---------

* Span cylinder at 1190 psi.  N2 at 1800 psi.

* started ops68 (renamed UC CSATs to correct hts, added 2D ATI), new
  UC logger program (uc_05.csi).

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     4657 Nov  7 10:24 uc_05.csi*

* FINALLY, renamed the undercanopy CSAT data to the correct variable
names (no longer need to remember that "4m" is actually 2.5m and "2m"
is actually 5.7m....this will affect several programs in the data
processing (and I might regret making this change!)...

I forgot to make a note of which is which in uc_05.csi!!  But u.1-u.5
is the 5.7m CSAT and u.6-u.10 is the 2.5m CSAT!

* removed KZ PAR-Lite sensor from the tower.

* added back in the 2d ati sensor (u.ati2 v.ati2 tc.ati2)...it was last used
in ops44/45....note, I'm sampling these data at 10-hz...I was doing this before
and then I changed it to 1-Hz (not sure if there was a reason I did this?), ie:

at 10-Hz:

* swapped LI-7200 heated inlet, reduced power from 4.6W to 4W

* Using the usb-to-serial adaptor I was able to connect to the 2.5m
LI-7500..it had an AGC value of 100% (see photos)...after cleaning
this dropped to around 65% and it seemed to be working ok, but then
about 2 hours after it was working it stopped working again....

* from approx 16:06-16:15 MST, Changed profiler (li-6251) dessicant

* downloaded logger data:

779: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 24-Feb-2014 12:33:10 MST, site visit on Saturday, November 2nd, 2013 (SpB)
Saturday, November 2nd, 2013 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: swap LI-7200s.  Check 2.5m LI-7500.

Weather: Clear and breezy.  At times the wind died down.  Warm for Nov.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Jeep (2WD, but still able to get up road).

* some snow on the ground (sticks to the cart wheels).  It took 2
  attempts, but I was able to get up the road to C1.

* Stefan and a german CGD vistor stopped by the tower.

* Max B. was removing some test lines with the Picarro.

* still to do:

  - remove one of the LI-7200 sections of black tubing (to the blower).
  - replace the vanes in the GAST pump

---------

* Span cylinder at 1210 psi.  N2 at 1950 psi.

* the CSAT box from Peter didn't have a serial cable, but it did have
an analog output cable...so I'll return the one he gave me back to
Cristol...

* found a serial cable in the trailer, but not sure if it's for the
CSAT (it doesn't have CSAT written on it)...it has a circular
connector with 10-pins that looks correct (see photo of CSAT3
connector box)...never had a chance to try and plug it in (or test the
software)...the cable is labeled as "RS232 ouput cable, Job #53926".

* summary of swapping the LI-7200s:

  - sn 72H-0479 (from LI-COR) replaced sn 72H-0192 (from NEON)

  - list of stuff mailed by LI-COR is at the end of this list (note,
    left one box with the LI-COR stuff in the trailer + one empty box
    on campus in Cristol).

  - documents with the LI-7550:   serial number: AIU-1110

      pressure sensor, A0= 58.673, A1=15.549, sn= PX-3528

      LI-7200 CO2/H2O Analyzer
      Calibration Certificate    Serial number 72H-0479
      CO2 Calibration Values       Signal Strength*
      A=                            B=0.053
                                    C=0.042

      [add/check these numbers later]

  - need to return at least two cables to NEON:

     * the cable that connects the flow module (LI-7200-101)
       to the LI-7550 to NEON..it's cable #?

     * the analog input/output cable that connects to the
       quacker data system (licor part #392-10109)

     * also didn't change the power supply, the power cables, or the
       ethernet cable on the tower.

  - slight problem #1: For the LI-7200 "out" port (which connects the
    tygon tubing to the flow module), there was a swagelok fitting on
    the LI-COR LI-7200 rather than the barbed fitting which was on the
    NEON LI-7200...to fix this, I put the NEON barbed fitting on the
    LI-COR li7200..here is a photo AFTER swapping the fittings:

    http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/131102/pic00016.jpg

  - slight problem #2: The LI-COR intake tube assembly appeared to
    have NPT threads rather than the swagelok (male) fitting needed to
    connect to the "in" port on the LI-7200.  There might have been a
    way around this, but I did the simpler thing and just kept on
    using the NEON LI-7200 heated intake tube assembly.  This also
    minimizes the number of changes when swapping LI-7200s...

  - reduced LI-7200 inlet heater from 5W to 4.6W,

  - need to double-check the flow rate (the flow rate is set to 13
    SLPM rather than 11 SLPM which is what NEON uses)

  - re-routed the tygon tubing so everything is shorter and more
    direct (previously we had two sections of tygon coupled together).

  - put foam around the LI-7200 body (so it wont' bang against the
    bracket).  see:

     http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/131102/pic00019.jpg

  - didn't install the water trap (looks awkard to install, and don't
    think we need it in the winter at Niwot site).

  - had some trouble with making the network connection; eventually
    connected with the serial cable and was able to get the IP address
    set, etc.  In the end it worked fine and might have been a typo
    by me?!?....NOTE:  I left the serial cable in the LI-7550 box.

  - saved the following configuration files:

  with NEON li-7200:
   -rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     4581 Nov  2 11:25 config_131102_neon_all.l7x*
   -rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     3602 Nov  2 11:26 config_131102_neon_part.l7x*

  with LI-COR li7200:
   -rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     4527 Nov  2 16:56 config_131102_licor_ver2.l7x*
   -rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     4545 Nov  2 17:08 config_131102_licor_ver3.l7x*

   (note, I didn't use any of the configuration files, just made the
    changes by hand...and have not updated all site info, etc).  But
    the variables saved are exactly as before....at 20-hz with 10-hz
    filter.

   - the co2 and sig strengths now look good, ie:

  - the packing list and notes provided by Jiahong:

  1. LI-7210, s/n 72H-0479, quantity 1
  2. LI-7550, s/n AIU-1110, 1
  3. LI-7200-101 s/n FM1-0147, 1
  4. 7200 Cable Assembly, p/n 9972-012
  5. 7200 Spares/Cleaning Kit, p/n 7200-028, 1
  6. 7550 Spares Kit, p/n 9975-023, 1
  7. Heated intake tube with Swagelok filter and rain cup, 2
  8. Water trap, 1
  9. Canister wrench for the water trap, 1
     (Note: Used to unscrew or screw the canister. Turn clockwise to unscrew).
 10. Long Tygon tubing, 1
 11. Short Tygon tubing, 1
 12. Air filter, p/n 301-10381, 2 (1spare)
 13. Horse clamp, 6 (2 spares)

 Note: A. 1. A heating element is installed per NEON’s recommendation
 (Thermal Devices TD010300C1).  This is a Watlow 100 Ohm (010300C1)
 heater rated at 120 VAC and 150 Watts.  For any given Voltage, you
 can compute the power from P = V^2/R.  At 30 Volts, it produces (30
 Volts)^2/ (100 Ohms) = 9 watts.  Here is a link to the Watlow catalog
 http://www.watlow.com/downloads/en/catalogs/heaters.pdf

 B. The opposing flats on two nuts near the raincup are masked off.
 These flats will allow two wrenches to be used to loosen and rotate
 the raincup to horizontal after it is installed.  The orientation of
 the raincup will depend on how the tube threads into the 7200 head,
 so they can only be adjusted after final installation.

 Note: The water trap should be installed close to the flow module
 using the short tubing (flow module to OUT of water trap). The long
 tubing is used for connecting IN of water trap to the LI-7200
 head. Horse clamps should used for tighten all the connections).

* LI-7200 data files during the LI-7200 swap (note, some of these
should NOT be used because variables are not consistent in them):

778: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 24-Feb-2014 12:30:24 MST, site visit on Thursday, October 24th, 2013 (SpB)
Thursday, October 24th, 2013 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: swap N2 cylinder.  Move t.med, upgrade fast logger
program.

Weather: Sunny, warm, calm.  Perfect day to work on the tower!

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep  (Duane gave me a lift from MRS)

* At the end of last week snowed about 8".  There is still some snow
on the ground in the forest.  The steep part of the road still has
snow and is getting iced up (I saw tracks indicating someone had
gotten stuck there).

* saw Dean moving gas cylinders to USGS tower (didn't get to
talk to him).

* John Knowles was servicing the TDL.

* brought up the new NEON inlet (to leave at the tower), but Stefan
sent an email that they needed it so I carried it back down with me
(returned to NEON on the morning of 10/25).

* still to do:

  - put foam around the LI-7200 body
  - remove one of the LI-7200 sections of black tubing (to the blower).
  - replace the vanes in the GAST pump

---------

* Span cylinder at 1300 psi.  N2 at 0 ---> 2150 psi.

* at 11:30 MST, swapped N2 cylinder; old=cc63143 new=cc329215

* The GPS apparently is not working well on the cpec200, so I moved
the power cable from 12V to SWSW12V-1 and uploaded a new program to
the cr3000:

rw-r--r--  1 sburns aster    160310 Oct 23 22:44 Cpec200_v1_4_01_3.cr3

the new program is supposed to apply power to the GPS after power
outages, etc.  (It didn't seem to be working when I uploaded it).

* These are the versions of the program I have:

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster   160578 Sep 15 14:37 Cpec200_v1_4_01.cr3*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster   159554 Oct 24 12:16 Cpec200_v1_4_01_2.cr3*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster   160310 Oct 23 22:44 Cpec200_v1_4_01_3.cr3*

* took a few screenshots of the cr3000 connection which are:

initial attempt:

  -rwxr-xr-x 1 sburns aster 857375 Oct 24 12:36 ec155_recheck6.png*

went back to original program:

  -rwxr-xr-x 1 sburns aster 867418 Oct 24 12:48 ec155_recheck_back8.png*

went back to the new program:
  -rwxr-xr-x 1 sburns aster 867793 Oct 24 16:35 ec155_recheck_final9.png*

* uploaded a few fast logger program (making co2.ec155 high-res, plus
  changing around the order of variables output), ie:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 sburns aster  7539 Oct 24 12:02 fast_19.csi*

* moved tc.med down to the 2.5m CSAT.  tc.met is now being sampled by
  the UC logger so updated the program (which had a lot of unecessary
  junk in it, could/should clean it up even more):

-rwxr-xr-x 1 sburns aster  5621 Oct 24 16:15 uc_04.csi*

* took both of these new logger programs into account with a new ops
  file (ops67.tar).  wiring note:  purple= HIGH, red=L

* at 13:20 MST, reduced the LI-7200 heated inlet power from 6 W
  (0.25A, 22.3 V) to 5 W (0.24 A, 21.0 V)

* powered on the cr10 MRS logger...


  - put foam around the LI-7200 body
  - remove one of the LI-7200 sections of black tubing (to the blower).
  - replace the vanes in the GAST pump

Subject: IRGA Comparison: quick update...

Hi All,

A short update about what's happening with the IRGA comparison (please
let me know if I write anything wrong):

* Tower visit from yesterday (10/24).

  - uploaded a new program to the cr3000 that runs the cpec200.

  - updated the tower data system to collect analog co2 from ec.155 in
    hi-resolution.  The tower data system is now ingesting analog co2
    from both the LI-7200 and the EC-155.

  - lowered the power for the LI-7200 heated inlet from 6W to 5W
    (following the recommndation from Stefan).

  - there was snow on the road to the trailer and could see someone
    has already gotten a bit stuck in the steep section.  If we get
    the storm that's supposed to hit early next week, it will likely
    close the road...



777: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 24-Feb-2014 12:27:34 MST, site visit on Tuesday, October 8th, 2013 (SpB, ES, JT)
Tuesday, October 8th, 2013 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB, ES, JT

Purpose of visit: move the cpec200 system, download logger data.

Weather: Breezy in the morning, then quite nice (warm and calm).

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Jeep

* met Ed and Jim at MRS at 8am.  Jim T. was doing the tower
inspection for Martin & Martin.

* came up boulder canyon which just re-opened on Sunday, Oct 6th.

* there was a small snowstorm since the last visit.

* mushrooms are all dead!

---------

* Span cylinder at 1400 psi. N2 at 510 psi

* Ed brought a freshly calibrated EC-155 head to replace the one
  currently on the tower.

* from 9:00-10:30 MST, Ed Swiatek and I moved the CPEC200 system from
  approx 23m down to the level of the other CSATs/IRGAs (21.5m).

  - the CSAT3A from the CPEC200 is between the EOL CSAT and CU CSAT.

  - The CSAT3A is 40cm away from the EOL CSAT3 and 100cm from the CU
    CSAT.

  - moved the LI-7500 from being adjecent to the EOL CSAT to now be
    between the EOL and CPEC200 booms and about 80cm behind the two
    CSATs.  (the LI-7500 could be moved further out on the boom at
    some later date).

  - photo of setup:

    http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/131008/pic00028.jpg

  - the inlet for the LI-7200 could be moved closer to the CSAT
    sampling volume.

  - add foam around the LI-7200 body to avoid bumping against the
    bolts of the mounting bracket in strong winds (see photo).

  - add extra hose clamps (bring from trailer!) to further secure the
    CPEC200 boom and LI-7500 mount.

  - current CPEC sampling rate is 10 samples/sec (LI-7200 is
    20 samples/sec on the usb thumb drive).

  - the tower data system is now ingesting an analog co2 voltage from
    both the LI-7200 (co2.li7200) and EC-155 (co2.ec155).  These can
    be used to check time stamps in post-processing as well as quick
    confirmation that the instruments are working (via cockpit).
    NOTE: need to ingest co2.ec155 as a High Resolution value!!  (need
    to modify logger program)

  - Ed will setup an ftp site to share the CPEC200 raw data.

* wiring for EC-155,

  co2, green = +, white = neg.
  h2o, blue = +, yellow = negative
  red/black, not used.

* conversion of EC-155 voltage to co2:

  A=211.27;    B=-56.34;
  co2_ec155_umolmol=A.*co2_ec155_mV./1000 +B;   % convert mV to volts

and h2o is:

  gain=11.31 units?   offset= -3.04

* tried to fix the T/RH4 RH readings by checking the wiring (this
  didn't help).  (it's on the met logger, in SE chan 21/22)

* at 13:00 MST, started ops68 (removed t.med, added co2.ec155), new
  FAST logger program (fast_18.csi).

* turned off EC/Prof fans

* powered up noah cr10x logger

* moved 4 cylinders from MRS to C1/trailer:

cc264936      N2    trlr           moved to trailer on 10/8/13 (barcode, APL994)

Tuesday, Sept 17th, 2013 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: fix chan201 (fast logger)

Weather: Breezy and a bit cool (feels like the end of summer).

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Jeep

* this is the first trip to the site after the massive
flood in boulder county between Sept 11-15.

* came up sunshine canyon which is the only local route.

* there were two juvenile moose around C1 that were splashing
in the pool near the trailer and going crazy!

* tons of mushrooms everywhere!

---------

* Span cylinder at 1600 psi. N2 at 1150 psi

* at about 12:00 MST, fixed network connection to LI-7200 (time seemed
fine, but it might have corrected itself, but the time I checked it??)

* power went out and data system went down on Thursday night:

* yesterday Andy Watt was kind enough to reboot the quacker
and fill the laser with LN2 (for John Knowles).  It was great
to see the quacker reboot cleanly, but chan 201 (fast logger)
didn't come back up.  Andy resent the program, but this didn't
fix the problem.

* logger seemed fine, so my conclusion was that the transmission to
the quacker was the problem.  First, tried swapping individual
components with the prf logger to get it working again...first swapped
the sc932 which didn't fix it...then installed a new ME271A short-haul
modem (logger end).  This didn't fix it.  Tried to swap channels at the
edgeport box...ie, used:

drwxrwsr-x   2 sburns  aster   4096 Sep 17 13:49 ops1_old_ops65_testing/
drwxrwsr-x   2 sburns  aster   4096 Sep 17 10:01 ops65_testing/

There was a diagnostic module in the trailer and tried to use that in
the quacker box...this seemed to indicate the data were coming into
the quacker.

* in the end, I swapped all the components (including cables) from the
prf logger with the fast logger...I also replaced the cable at the
quacker end...this made it start working (note, the setup in the prf
logger worked too!)...it seemed like the problem might have been the
cable going from the short-haul to the edgeport (after it was working,
I put in the old cable and it failed!)....after everything was working
I went back to the original ops file (ops64), ie:

drwxrwsr-x   2 sburns  aster   4096 Jul 15 16:40 ops1/
drwxrwsr-x   2 sburns  aster   4096 May  7 10:52 ops64/

* note that in July, I updated cover.config, ie:

  diff ops64/covar.config ops1/covar.config
  60,61c60,61
  < ## EOL CSAT and LI-7200 flux data
  < 11 F u.csi.eol v.csi.eol w.csi.eol tc.csi.eol co2.li7200;
  ---
  > ## EOL CSAT and LI-7200 flux data   updated on 7/15/13 to include co2.mmol h2o.mmol, because LI-7500 is now paired with "EOL" csat3...
  > 11 F u.csi.eol v.csi.eol w.csi.eol tc.csi.eol co2.li7200 co2.mmol h2o.mmol;

* I now have a box of "backup" components in the trailer that I can
use to test/replace certain parts that fail in the data system.

notes:

  -- short-haul modem, at logger, vde-0871-b, me721a-m, set to DCE
     the wires are, grey = TxA
                    blue = TxB
                    purp = RxA
                    aqua = RxB

  -- at quacker end, this is set to DCE!

  -- at quacker end, testing module shows, RD blinks red, TD solid
     red, all others solid green.

  -- at quacker, connection is 9600 baud, p/d/s, none/8/1 cntrl= none, this
     comes from:

* Andy Watt rebooted quacker on 9/16/13 at around 13:20 MST.

* system shutdown on the evening on Sept 12th...note, massive flooding
in Boulder...also, it appears that ch201 (fast logger) died before the
other loggers??....is this because the battery there dies before the
others?  Or, this could be a sign of damage of other components (ie,
downstream of logger) due to lightning?

-------------------------------
At the site: SpB, SC

Purpose of visit: teardown of the AmeriFlux IC; also swap
span tank.

Weather: windy/blustery in morning.  clear and warm.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

*

*

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB, SC, SB

Purpose of visit: setup of the AmeriFlux IC.

Weather: high clouds.  calm, sunny, and dry.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Prius.

* Stephen Chan and Sebastien Biraud from Lawrence Berkeley National
Laboratory were bringing up the intercomparison stuff.  Met them at
MRS at 8:30am.

*

*

---------

* Span cylinder at 200 psi.  N2 at 900 psi.

* Helped Stephen and Sebastien carry a load of stuff to the tower.
Note, they also brought along the pulley and rope to haul stuff up the
tower (we used the same bar that we used with Christoph in 2006!)

* at 9:00 MST, reset gfi outlet (for Picarro), note the instrument has
other problems and power needs to be shut-off to the entire shed.

* at 9:20 MST, increased the LI-7200 heated inlet power to
  6 W (0.27 A, 23.7 V)

* at 10:10 MST, the krypton hygrometer was re-deployed  (note, according to
the manual the longer tube should be on the TOP, but according to CHATS photos I
think it's the other way around?  And I think I had it the other way around for
the previous deployment)....

* Re-calibration info for the krypton hygrometer (in my backpack?):

Thursday, July 18th, 2013 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB, RM, DM, +

Purpose of visit: MRS Flux class tower visit

Weather: It was clear in the morning and then just as the tower
tour started, it dumped rain heavily (with some hail mixed in).

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* the network from campus to MRS has been up and down...apparently
this has been due to a virus affecting the networking hardware!

* Campbell Scientific (Larry and Ed) and student teams from the flux
class were setting up instruments right near the trailer at C1.

*

---------

* Span cylinder at ? psi.  N2 at ? psi.  (didn't check these!)

* There was some clouds building in the morning (and some
lightning/thunder just the north of us)....once we arrived at the
tower and broke into three groups, the rain started and everyone ran
back to C-1 and the trip was cancelled.

* though it rained quite hard the LI-7200 co2 signal seemed to be ok.

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013 Visit:
-------------------------------
At the site: SpB, JVS, K, MW, +

Purpose of visit: LTER site visit, swap inlet on LI-7200.

Weather: some clouds.  perfect day!

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* there has been quite a bit of rain recently and the network
to the tower has been up and down...

* the trail has obviously had water running down it (pine needles
moved, etc).

* Wit (Holly grad student) was doing soil respiration measurements near
the N Canopy tower.

* had a short discussion/presentation about the AmeriFlux tower with
the LTER review team (and Mark Williams).

* the flux class had started, saw Dave M., Russ, Ray Leuning, et al.

---------

* Span cylinder at 300 psi.  N2 at 1100 psi.

* Ethan, Dave, and Kael were setting up the loggers and power for
the interceptometers (near N canopy tower).

* from 16:30-16:50 MST, replaced 2.5m REBS domes (the upper one was broken).

* from 12:04-13:20 MST, adjusted the heater for the LI-7200 inlet tubing.

* took several screen shots of the LI-7200 settings, etc:

* emails about LI-7200 (there was an issue which we suspect was liquid
water in the cell...however, on inspection, no obvious water in the
cell or tube, but note that the problem had "fixed itself" by the time
I looked at)

Subject: Re: NEON test deployment with CU

Hi,

a few quick notes:

* cleaned the cell and swapped the inlet

* i raised the li-7200 body by about 1-2 cm so that there is a slight
downward tilt to the inlet tube (to discourage water from running into
the body).  it's maxed out and can't go any higher than this.

* left the heater at the same setting and am seeing t.out approx
  5 C > t.in

* h2o sig strength at 74, co2 at 56

* everything else looks good/OK on diag page.

* when i dropoff the old inlet at NEON i should get the LI-7500 manual
(forgot this last time) and a few more swabs

* doug, please let me know if you are not going to be in the office
this week...

* I could also use an allen key to fit the bolt that holds the LI-7200
in place...the allen wrenches I have are too small for this bolt.

thanks!

                                         SpB.

769: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Mon 10-Feb-2014 16:39:07 MST, site visit on Thursday, July 11th, 2013 (SpB)
Thursday, July 11th, 2013 Visit:
-------------------------------
At the site: SpB,

Purpose of visit:

Weather: some clouds.  pleasant and cool.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* A guy from U of A (forgot his name, but he works with Russ and Dave
Moore) was coring trees west of the tower (I think he said the plan is
to core 400 trees!).

* John Knowles was moving around gas cylinders in the TGA shed.

---------

* Span cylinder at 300 psi.  N2 at 1230 psi.

* John Van Stan  and Kael (from UW) were
installing/scanning the sensors to measure precip interception near
the N Canopy tower.

* noticed that the upper 2.5m REBS domes was broken (water had gotten in).

* adjusted the heater for the LI-7200 inlet tubing:

  Instructions from Stefan Metzger:

   Hi Sean;
   1.       Make sure the voltage dial is at its max, and leave it there;
   2.       Dial in 0.24 A using the current dial, and the volts should automatically rise to about 21 V;
   3.       Else, continue to modify the current dial until you reach amperes x volts = 5 W.
   Thanks! S.

  -- at 10:54 MST, turned on heater Amps = 0.21, V= 18.1 (didn't change any settings)
  -- at 11:10 MST, checked reading, A=0.21, V=18.3  (still didn't change settings)
  -- at 12:38 MST, changed A=0.24 and V=21.0 V  (note, when I increased the amps, V also increased)

* here is the updated schedule for the LI-7200:

---------------------------------------

Subject: RE: NEON test deployment with CU


   The schedules match perfectly! Here (and attached) our preferences:

   - July 11, Sean enables LI-7200 intake tube heating (5 W: 0.24 A @ 21 V);

   - July 16 (or approximately five days after enabling intake tube heating),

      * Sean replaces rain cup/filter/tube combination and returns
        used rain cup/filter combination to NEON within 1 week for
        cleaning through Ted and Doug;

      * Sean changes LI-7200 intake tube heating (6 W: 0.27 A @ 23.7 V);

   - July 23 (or approximately five days after last intake tube heating change),

      * Sean disables LI-7200 intake tube heating;

   - July 29, end of IOP;

   Later! S.
---------------------------------------

* from around 11:50-12:25 MST, adjusted LI-6251 and swapped dessicant tube.  The
  flow was restricted, but the micropump appears to be ok (and is working fine).
  There will be a big change in the calibration values for the period with the
  constriction....

Monday, July 1st, 2013 Visit:
-----------------------------
At the site: SpB, PB, SM

Purpose of visit: install LI-7200

Weather:  There was a constant threat of rain, but it never happened (lucky for us).

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up Stefan Van.

* A moose greeted us at the trailer.

*

---------

* Span cylinder at XX psi.  N2 at XX psi.

* this was a last-minute visit to re-install the LI-7200 (after
  getting approval by the lawyers).  We met at NEON and Stefan drove
  up with all the equipment.

* the installation went ok.  we had a few issues with getting the
  LI-7200 blower fan working (needed to control it via the software).

Thursday, June 27th, 2013 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: re-install the LI-7500, replace REBs domes.

Weather:

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU suburban (to haul down the cylinders).

* it was quite dry and crispy in the forest.

* John Knowles was at the tower and helped drag the cart with the
  N2 cylinder and LI-7500 stuff...

* since I had last been to the site, Max had removed the A/C unit and
  replaced the table holding the big pump.

---------

* Span cylinder at 400 psi.  N2 at 1600 psi.

* moved 4 N2 cylinders from snowshed to c1 on 6/27/13: cc63143
 (ddh568), cc329215 (ddg640), cc176151 (dde388), cc329280 (apx866)
 (cc63143 is at the tower, the other three are hidden in woods just
 west of trailer)

* moved four near-empty cylinders from C1 back down to snow shed:

eb0034127 N2 at 200 psi
cc267681 N2 at 0 psi
cc76749 N2 at 100 psi
cc240401 co2 in air, 20 psi

(John offerred to have dist services pick these up sometime in the future).

* in the morning I stopped by NEON and picked up the LI-7500 (sn
75h-0084) from Doug Kath to re-install on the tower.

* In the trailer I ran N2 and the WMO-based span gas (at 368.37 ppm)
through the LI-7200.  Note, that the serial port on plumwood (my
laptop) was problematic...however, podocarp worked ok (synced time to
MDT before collecting the LI-7500 data)...here are the data and
screenshots:

the logfile.txt does not have absolute time, but shows the start time and "relative" time...here
are my notes:

 - at 10:45 MST, ran N2 through the sample cell

 - from 10:53-10:55 MST, ran N2 through cell.
   (for the last 30 sec, reduced the reg pressure from 20 to 10 psi)

 - from 10:56:15--10:58:00 MST, ran co2 span through the cell, last
   30 sec at 10 psi, other times at 20 psi.

I saved the updated the LI-7500 configuration file as:

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     1919 Jun 27 10:24 li7500_12m_sn75h-0084_130627_Configuration.l75*

* from 12:30-14:00 MST, reinstalled LI-7500 (at 21.5m)

  - this was time-consuming because I had to re-route all the cables
    for the control box and power supply from 12.5m up to 21.5m.

  - did NOT have time to extend the boom for the LI-7500 out to the
    head of the CSAT so it is currently collecting data close to the
    tower (see photos).

* attached the LI-7200 bracket from NEON to the CSAT3 boom.  It seems
  to work fine (need to check with Ted about my use of the shim).  I
  hope the bottom plate is sturdy enough to hold the LI-7200 in place
  because it's only held in place with two bolts (it's not a light
  instrument).

* the 2nd-highest inlet for the Picarro system has a broken hose clamp.
(I sent max an email about this).

* from 15:30-16:10 MST, replaced domes on REBS 25.5m Rnet sensor

* at 16:30 MST, removed the krypton hygrometer (it needs re-doing)

* logger data (didn't download yet!):

* note: the cronjob to copy the images from the forestcam is working! it's:

Subject: Re: FW: FW: NEON test deployment with CU

Hi All,

Here's a brief summary of yesterday:

* before putting the LI-7500 on the tower, I checked it in our trailer
at C1 by running N2 and a span gas (368.37 ppm) through the sample
cell (using the sleeve insert provided by LI-COR).

photo of the setup:

 http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/130627/pic00001.jpg

and a screenshot when running N2 through the cell:

 http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/130627/li7500_130627_diag_tab_with_N2.png

you can see the co2 is near zero, but h2o has an offset (typical h2o
values in the atmosphere at our site are 400-500 mmol/m3 in summer and
100-200 mmol/m3 in winter).

the data from my tests are here:

 http://urquell.colorado.edu/sean/li7500_sn75h-0084_130627_LogFile.txt

I haven't looked at the data in detail...It would be good to figure
out why there is an offset for h2o (perhaps related to the h2o
reference as Stefan mentions below).

* I installed the bracket for the LI-7200 on the CSAT3 boom.  Ted, I used
the small metal shim as shownn in the following photo:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/130627/pic00010.jpg

with the shim, the bolt squeeze the bracket in place and it feels like
a very solid connection (ie, will not move).  my only suggestion with
the bracket would be to have a solid angle section at the bottom of
the bracket (rather than the two bolts holding that bottom piece in
place)....a photo showing the bottom piece:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/130627/pic00009.jpg

For summer this is fine (light winds), but, for a long-term deployment
through the winter I would feel better with a solid angle there (since
bolts can come loose)...maybe there is a good reason to use bolts that
I have not thought of (probably easier to construct)...other than
that, this bracket is awesome!

* I installed the LI-7500 at 21.5m, but didn't have time to extend the
boom and have it co-located with the CSAT3 (I figure without the
LI-7200 there, this is not critical).  Here's a photo of how I left
it:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/130627/pic00024.jpg

I'll be available on Monday afternoon after about 12:30 to go to Niwot
and do the installation of the LI-7200 (assuming the paperwork can get
signed in the morning).  I can also go up later in the afternoon on
Monday and stay up there until dark (or however long it takes)...

thanks!

                                         SpB.

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013 Visit:
------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: swap N2 cylinder, check on LI-7200

Weather:

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Prius.

* the road to C1 is now open (and fairly dry).

*

---------

* Span cylinder at 730 psi.  N2 at 890 psi.

* snow depths (taken from top of tape!)

              closest to tree =  top
       TP101 461 middle probe =   cm
               farthest probe =   cm

* from 9:30-10:00 MST, updated LI-7200 firmware from ver 6.5.0 to ver
  6.5.2 no change to FGPA (v6.0.1)

* found the black box the LI-7200 was in and didn't find any spare
  thermocouples...on reflection, when I borrowed the LI-7200 from NEON
  there was also no spare usb drive (I picked that up later from
  Hongyan) and/or swabs.  Here is a photo of the LI-7200 stuff when I
  transported it to the tower:

  http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/110910/pic00001.jpg

* from approx 14:00-15:00 MST, removed LI-7200 body from the tower and
  replaced the broken T.in thermocouple.  (also, blew air into the
  cell and wiped down the lens, etc).  Note: I have the can of
  compressed air and extra thermocople to return to NEON.

  Note: I did not have time (and/or equipment?) to do the pressure
  check that is described in the LI-7200 manual...

* screenshots of the LI-7200 settings, etc:

  LI-7200 variables currently being saved:

   http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/130604/li7200_settings_130604.png

   note, I am not saving "diagnostic value 2" and/or the signal strength variables...need to add
   these?  (or can they be extracted from the diagnostic value?)...need to check this.

* measured the boom for the LI-7200 CSAT:   4.5cm x 4.5cm (square)

* I had some difficulty with the connector for the temperature sensors
to the LI-7200 body (this is the connector just above the pressure
port).  I think I was hurrying to get off the tower (black clouds were
forming)...and didn't have the connector aligned correctly when I
first tried to connect it...the plastic slot got a bit messed
up...after some careful work re-aligning the pins, was finally able to
get it to go back in (and the weather cooperated).  Temperature data
seem ok, but this cable might need to be checked/replaced!

Subject: Ice Dam (or Damn Ice?)....


Hi,

some of you might have noticed that there is a bit of an ice dam under
the como creek bridge on the way to the AmeriFlux tower, ie:

 http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/130521/pic00026.jpg

yesterday, I used a mattock to try and break up the ice a bit, ie:

 http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/130521/pic00027.jpg

It was a bit awkward with a mattock and maybe a rock bar would work
better (btw, in my quick search at the tower I didn't find the rock
bar that used to be kept there?)...I also cleared out some of the
snow/ice on top of the bridge (with the hope that this would allow the
sun to heat the bridge and melt the ice from above)...the ice was
about 4-5" thick on top of the bridge...

In my years working at the tower this has never happened before (or at
least I have never noticed it)....I'm not sure what else to do, but
hopefully the ice will melt out before the water starts flowing too
much...

The bridge might be due for some maintenance work this summer...maybe
something as simple as replacing the long planks that run the length
of it...

              closest to tree = 36 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 46 cm
               farthest probe = 51 cm

* at 12:15 MST, replaced GAST pump...

* at 12:25 MST, re-zeroed the LI-6262 (as much as I could).

   h2o dial was at 12.5 and 193 mV
          changed to 0.0 and 45 mV


   co2 dial was at 1.3  and 202 mV
        changed to 0.0 and 112 mV.

* moved KZ PAR-LITE sensor to trailer (too windy to put on tower).

  Notes:

 last time (summer 2010), used diff chan9 = parameter "PAR2.up" in cockpit/prep.config

 wiring:

       white wire = H
       green wire = L
           shield = GND.

757: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Fri 12-Jul-2013 12:31:20 MDT, site visit on Saturday, January 19th, 2013 (SpB)
Saturday, January 19th, 2013 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: swap N2 cylinder, setup one more thermocouple.

Weather: warm, sunny, calm.  Some clouds in the morning, but then
cleared up and was very pleasant.  And quiet.  A snowstorm is supposed
to hit this weekend...

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Prius.

* after site visit: moved tower stuff at CU from INSTAAR to Cristol.

* large scat on the trail that looked like a mt lion!

*

---------

* Span cylinder at 1500 psi.  N2 at 0 psi --> 1970 psi.

* from 11:00-11:40 MST, swapped N2 cylinder; old=cc267681 new=eb0034127

* snow depths (taken from top of tape!)

              closest to tree =  25 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe =  32 cm
               farthest probe =  38 cm

* borrowed the clamp-on amp meter from Kurt Knudsen to check each
  ciruit at the tower.  Here is an email summary:

Subject: Re: Increase in power use at transformer to tower

Hi All,

A follow-up to the question about power usage at the AmeriFlux
tower...last Saturday I measured the power being used on each circuit.

Here is what I found:

Overall Usage is about 13 amps, this is very similar to what we found
last March when the Picarro and big pump were running...one thing I
noticed is that the power usages jumps up to 14-15 amps every 20
seconds and it stays at that level for about 5 seconds...I checked
each of the 4 circuits and found:

  Individual Circuits at CU tower:

   1. "Outlet Below":  8 amps  (then goes up to about 11 amps every 20 sec)

   This runs the quacker and network swith in the quacker
   box (first goes to the UPS at 1st tower level).
   Also, in Fall 2011 added the Picarro system (and pump) to this
   circuit.

   2. "Bottom Level":  4 amps

   This runs the pumps at the bottom of the tower..as well as
   the TGA and everything else in the TGA shed.

   3. "Middle Level":  2.5 amps (might be lower than this)

   This runs the network switch at mid-tower level.  Also,
   the LI-6251 and LI-6262.

   4. "Top Level":  1.5 amps (probably less).

   This runs the CSATs, radiation instruments.  Also,
   added LI-7200 in Fall 2011.


At the tower, the voltage was approx 119 VAC.

When I unplugged the Picarro (and pump) from the "outlet below", this
dropped the power draw from 8 amps to about 0.5 amps.  I then moved
the quacker (ie, laptop that runs the data system and other stuff) off
the "outlet below" circuit and now this circuit is exclusively for the
Picarro system.  After plugging the Picarro system back in, there is a
delay with the Picarro pump, but this ciruit was still drawing 1.5
amps...which would go up to 4 amps every 20 seconds.  So, I'm guessing
this is due to valves switching (Max would know more)...after the pump
kicked back on, this circuit was drawing about 7 amps and then would
jump to around 11 amps every 20 sec.  Here is a photo of the "outlet
below" (which is also a gfi outlet):

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/130119/pic00011.jpg

Anyway, the bottom line here is that adding the Picarro system
(including this pump) adds about 7-8 amps to the power usage (with
jumps to higher usage every 20 seconds)...everything else at the tower
uses about 8-9 amps.  So, our power usage should have nearly doubled
starting around Nov 2011 when the picarro was added (with a few
periods when it was off-line).

One other thought: the USGS tower uses the same power line as us..so
if there was something drawing increased power at USGS that might
explain a dramatic increase in the site power usage...I'm cc'ing Dean
Anderson from USGS in case he wants to check or add anything...

Jen or Steve, how big of an increase do you see in the meter readings?

Also, Max can correct any mistakes I've made in my understanding of
the Picarro setup...I didn't completely follow all the extention cords
into his shed...

thanks!

                                       SpB.

let me borrow the card reader, but I think I brought the wrong card
back to the trailer!)...also, was checking for lights when I insert
the card...it didn't seem to work every time so perhaps need to make
sure it is inserted correctly...note, the serial port in the dell

* tried to get the ATI working again (opened the box and checked the
connections), but it is still broken?...in the past, checking the
loose connections has fixed it...

* moved the LI-7200 body up about 10cm so that there is a slight
downward tilt in the sample line (so any condensation/water will
flow down the inlet tubing)...

* started ucb_17.csi.  Removed the handar probe (it has not been
working) and used diff chan 9 to add one more thermocouple.  This
thermocouple is setup BELOW the LI-7500...note that the shaft of the
TC is zip-tied to the body of the LI-7500...this could generate some
heat which conducts to the TC wires...if this creates a problem, this
setup could be changed later...in the data system this is "Ttc.4".

752: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Tue 13-Nov-2012 12:17:54 MST, site visit on Wednesday, October 31st, 2012 (SpB)
Wednesday, October 31st, 2012 Visit:
------------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: clean the LI-7200, setup a few more thermocouples.

Weather: warm, sunny, calm.  Could not ask for better weather for the
last day of October.  3-5" of Wet, melting snow on the ground.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* forgot my boots!  had to make do with my keens, plastic bags,
  and gaitors.

* John Knowles was moving cylinders from C1 to the tower
(he was using the new ATV)

* bought more zip ties, allen wrench, and a few other misc
items.

* saw some more scat (lion?) on road to C1...also, some tracks
on path to tower with a gait about as large as my arm....

---------

* Span cylinder at 250 psi.  N2 at 400 psi.

* snow depths (taken from bottom of tape!, need to determine new
  measurement depths!):

              closest to tree =  5 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe =  11 cm
               farthest probe =  13 cm

* from 11:35-12:45 MST, did maintenance on the LI-7200 (cleaned cell,
  replaced dessicant/scrubber bottles).

  -- picked up the scrubber bottles and Ascarite II from NEON...I had
     MgClO4 which I used to fill the bottles....cleaning out the old
     bottles was a bit messy (did this in the trailer)...

  -- the instructions with the LI-7200 are fairly straight-forward
     ..note the AGC value was quite high (above 80)...once I opened
     the cell I could see why--the lenses and optical cell were very
     dirty.  It seemed like it was mostly pollen.  After the cleaning,
     the AGC was closer to 60.

  -- there was a small vial of vinegar in the shed (from Max?)...I
     used this to clean the lenses and cell (note, could not find my
     bottle of d-i water?).  Need to refill and leave in shed.

  -- the old scrubber bottles actually looked to be in good shape.
     The one at the top of the LI-7200 looked more used than the other
     two.

  -- need to pay closer attention to the AGC!!  Cleaning is easy and
     the LI-7200 is awesome to work with and clean!

  -- Also, when I reinstalled the LI-7200 inlet I moved it closer to
     the CSAT transducers.  Also, checked the filter screens at the
     inlet and at the pump and they seemed ok...didn't do anything to
     them.

  -- did screen shots (note, use PRNT-SCREEN to take and CTRL-V to
     paste into paint).  These are are on russter2 as:

* at 12:50 MST, swiped krypton hygrometer (used vinegar).

* updated from ops59 to ops60:

* added two more thermocouples to the ucb logger..these
are co-located with the 2.5m CSAT and LI-7500.
-------------------------------------------------


* updated the ucb logger to output data from two new thermocouples:

> ; ucb_16.csi, added two new thermocopules (near li-7500).
> ;  also changed se channel for cs616 probe.
> ; 31 oct 2012.  spb.
> ;

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     8474 Oct 31 14:58 ucb_16.csi*

* I had to fiddle around a bit to make room for the new
thermocouples...I moved the CS616 probe from SE chan 23 to SE chan 6,:

<  2: 23       SE Channel
---
>  2: 6        SE Channel

then the three thermocouples (two new ones) were on diff chans 10-12, ie:

14:  Thermocouple Temp (DIFF) (P14)
 1: 3        Reps
 2: 20       Auto, 60 Hz Reject, Slow Range (OS>1.06)
 3: 10       DIFF Channel
 4: 2        Type E (Chromel-Constantan)
 5: 22       Ref Temp (Deg. C) Loc [ PanelTemp ]
 6: 28       Loc [ TC1_1     ]
 7: 1.0      Mult
 8: 0.0      Offset

* new thermocouple details:

 TC1_1 (Ttc.20cm):  approx 20cm behind CSAT transducers, not moved from where it has been
 TC1_2  (Ttc.2)  :  near path of LI-7500, 33cm behind CSAT3 transducers
 TC1_3  (Ttc.3)  :  located 2cm behind CSAT3 transducers  (use this for flux!)

* collected logger data:

----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: Do some cleanup before the snow
arrives.

Weather: warm and sunny, but then clouded up in
the afternoon (storm was approaching).

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* replaced UPS battery at base of tower

* cleaned up / painted the MRC snow temp probes

* at 10:30 MST, swapped battery charger for soil logger (voltages
still too high).  Hopefully with a new charger it will start acting
"normal".

* at 12:10 MST, re-connected grounding wire for ATI K-probe (starts
  working again)

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012 Visit:
----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: take russter2 to/from campus, move
N2 cylinders

Weather: Cold and windy.  Some nice wave clouds.  Calmed
down and was raining lightly when I left.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Jeep (needed to haul cylinders).

*

---------

* Span cylinder at 350 psi.  N2 at 850 psi.

* at 7:57 MST, shutdown russter2 and brought it back to campus.
UnixOPS replaced the hard drive (this time, I bought a new hard drive
rather than using a re-furbished one).  At 13:17 MST, rebooted
russter2 with the new hard drive.  Data system didn't come up right
away, but it did eventually (after doing, 'ndaqrestart quacker').
Note:  the old hard drive is sitting in a box on top of russter2.

* moved 4 new N2 cylinders to tower/trailer:

cc267681      N2    tower/base     moved to tower 10/16/12, moved to trailer 10/16/12
cc142673      N2    trlr/inside    moved to trailer 10/16/12
cc176525      N2    trlr/inside    moved to trailer 10/16/12
eb0034127     N2    trlr/inside    moved to trailer 10/16/12

* brought 8 cylinders back to MRS, here is a summary:

From:    Sean Burns 
Subject: Re: gas cylinders at C1...

Hi John,

I put a total of eight cylinders in the snowmobile shed...they are all
on the wall right next to the liquid N2 tanks.  Here is a summary:

AmeriFlux cylinders:
--------------------
cc329215      N2               < 20 psi
cc301525      N2               < 20 psi
cc180691      N2               < 20 psi
SG91667447BAL co2 in air       approx 100 psi
cc140852      co2 in air       approx 200 psi

Knowles Cylinders:
------------------
cc325495     5% co2
cc262422     5% co2
cc262316     N2

I didn't have a pickup form...could you fill out the form and make the
call to have them picked up?  If not, then I'll do this next time I go
to the site (maybe next week, depending on the weather). . .

can't reach the tower right now...not surprising with this wind...


                                         SpB.

* the soil logger battery voltage has been rather high for the past
month or so (around 14.8)...replaced it with a spare battery in the
trailer (a smaller one)...the old soil logger battery is in the
bowling shack.  Did NOT replace the trickle charger (need to check
data on next visit).  Typical voltage should be around 12.8 volts.

* downloaded logger data:

Purpose of visit: help Jielun gather tubing (check old sites), meet
with Max to discuss the new shed.

Weather: It was sunny.  Very hazy/smoky down on the plains.  It
was a bit breezy at times, but nothing too serious.  Fall colors
(aspens) are probably at a peak right now...

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up JS SUV.

* Jielun had a team of visitors helping: Mireia Udina, Lisa Dirks, and
  Guoyin Wang.

* Max and David Noone were finishing the new shed for the picarro.

---------

* Span cylinder at 550 psi.  N2 at 1600 psi.

* we searched for tubing at all the old sites (near Pine from CME04,
near como creek for CME07, and the main tower for NIWOT02).  There was
not much tubing at any of these locations.  We collected all the
synflex tubing that was just off the trail on the way to the
tower...this tubing filled Jielun's vehicle (so Max gave Mireia, Lisa,
and Guoyin a ride back to NCAR).

* at 12:49 MST, adjusted cal flows in LI-6262 system

* at approx 13:30 MST, swiped krypton hygrometer

* downloaded logger data:

----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: fix LI-6251 micropump, get logger data.

Weather: very calm.  it was hazy/smokey (supposedly from
the fires in california and the NW).  it started raining
as I was leaving (around 2pm)...

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Prius.

*

---------

* Span cylinder at 800 psi.  N2 at 500 psi.

* from 10:30-13:00 MST, replaced micro-pump in prof system (li-6251)
  [Only zero gas connected!].  Note, the pump initiall did not work
  (using the AMP connector)...as I was investigating, one of the wires
  to power the pump was actually loose...and as I was checking the
  voltage of these wires it touched the back (metal) panel and sent up
  quite a spark...

* at 11:44 MST, changed span/n2 flow in LI-6262.

* at 12:15 MST, re-started ati k-probe (will it work?). this time I
  opened the box and tried to improve the connection of the grounding
  wire...

* also double-checked the connections of the 2m T/RH sensor (at the
  met logger).  (this didn't seem to fix anything)...the sensor
  probably needs to be replaced...T is also flaky (but not as bad a
  RH)...

Hi Max,

next time I'm up here I think I'll move you off the gfi outlet at the
base of the tower...if that gfi pops it causes the laptop at the base
of the tower to crash (losing all the hi-rate tower data), someone
needs to come up here to reset the gfi, etc...

...we can run an extention cord from one of the upper power outlet on
the tower and then you can run the picarro off of that...

thanks,

                                                SpB.

741: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Thu 11-Oct-2012 16:05:34 MDT, site visit on Friday, July 27th, 2012 (SpB)
Friday, July 27th, 2012 Visit:
------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: swap out the EOL CSAT with the Blanken CSAT.

Weather: Very odd.  Sunny in the morning, then a big storm (and power
outage), then clear and sunny again.  Storms in the area and lightning
visible from the tower.  It's been a very wet/stormy July.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep

* Allison and a helper from Utah were doing some things at the
  site (one of which was trying to diagnose the network problem
  to the Beatle shed)...

* grabbed Peters CSAT 0254 from Christol 222 and brought it up to the
  site.

* a big (healthy?) black bear ran across road below MRS...

---------

* Span cylinder at 950 psi.  N2 at 910 psi.

* the power went out while I was walking from C1 out to the tower
(stopped to talk to Allison and the power was out there).

* when I arrived, the picarro pump was still running...and then I
  realized that's because it's on the UPS....before I could do much,
  the pump stopped...

* while power was out I swapped CSATs, from 11:30-12:30 MST, swapped
  EOL CSAT sn 0674 (ver 3) with Blanken CSAT sn 0254 (ver 4).
  Returned CSAT 0674 to EOL and Chris dumped the following info for me:

* Back-UPS 650 kept beeping after power came back on...not sure why,
but that battery has not been replaced since 2007, so it's probably
time to replace it (note: ordered RBC4 replacement on 8/1/12).  Based
on the quacker logs the power kept going on/off to the quacker, ie:

* sometime since the last visit the micropump for the LI-6251 stopped
working...need to check data for exact date...pulled out the old pump,
but didn't replace (could smell something was burned).  capped the
span and n2 flows through the LI-6251 system to try and save gas..THEN
I realized that the N2 in the LI6262 ref cell first passes through the
LI-6251 ref cell...so had to re-arrange where I capped the flows...

* at 16:15 MST, slightly decreased N2/span flow in li-6262

* Note: Back-UPS 650 battery acted strange after power came back on

* RH from 2m T/RH sensor still not working

736: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Thu 11-Oct-2012 15:51:10 MDT, site visit on Thursday, May 17th, 2012 (SpB, KB)
Thursday, May 17th, 2012 Visit:
-------------------------------
At the site: SpB, KB

Purpose of visit: get logger data, meet Max, change span

Weather: A Mix of snow, wind, calm, sun...the trail to the tower is
still firm and solid.  But, the ground is starting to appear in many
spots.  There was a slight dusting of snow in the morning.  Como creek
is flowing.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* Kyle Becker (high school student in Boulder) was up at the site to
collect LAI measurements.

* The snow is pretty much GONE!...I completely missed the melt
period...there are a still a few spots with snow remnants...but the
trails are fairly dry and como creek is not too high.

* the Aspens at C1 are just starting to break bud....the ones lower
down have already leafed out (even as close as the top of the power
line).

* Barker Res was not going over the spillway on my way up, but was on
my way back down...

---------

* Span cylinder at 1600 psi.  N2 at 800 psi.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree =  00 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe =  00 cm
               farthest probe =  00 cm

* Kyle Becker collected the LAI-2000 measurements at the site

* LAI files are:

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     1700 May 17 12:24 LAI_clear_120517.txt*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     1698 May 17 13:44 LAI_cloudy_120517.txt*

* checked the location of the undersnow thermocouples (near the snow
temp probes)...for the distances north of the "tree" snowtemp probe I
found:

TC profile 1  = 45 cm
TC profile 2  = 115 cm
snow probe (Mid) = 150 cm
TC profile 3  = 150 + 65 = 215 cm
snow probe (Far) = 150 + 122 = 272 cm

The "tree snow temp probe" is 65cm from one tree and 82 cm from a 2nd
tree....

* from approx 13:02 - 13:20 MST, swapped out the dessicant on the profiler (li-6251).
    - at 13:02 MST, did zero, co2 approx 0.006 mV
    - at 13:18 MST,  did zero + blow test (ok).
                (zero is approx 0.008 mV).
    - at 13:20 MST, back to auto mode.  flow rate at ~14.

* disconnected Noahs logger

* re-connected the CR1000 (Brent/Dustin).

* disconnected MRS cr10 logger (I think?).  Also, dumped water out of
this box....

* downloaded logger data (and reset logger clocks):

Thursday, April 19th, 2012 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB, MB, E, S

Purpose of visit: get logger data, meet Max, change span

Weather: A Mix of snow, wind, calm, sun...the trail to the tower is
still firm and solid.  But, the ground is starting to appear in many
spots.  There was a slight dusting of snow in the morning.  Como creek
is flowing.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Prius.

* max, eric, and sally hauled the AC up from the
parking lot near the 1st gate.  (it was already at
the tower when I arrived).

---------

* Span cylinder at 100 psi --> 1800 psi.  N2 at 1490 psi.

* at 13 MST, swapped span cylinder; old=sg9166747 new= cc240401

* snow depths:

              closest to tree =  39 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe =  53 cm
               farthest probe =  51 cm

* Max setup the AC unit outside the bowling TGA shed.
 (seems to have a spike at startup, but then was only drawing
  around 1 amp)...

* at around 13:30 MST, fixed ch11 of NCTC...this was the 16m thermocouple.
  (two levels below the 21.5 m level)...the hts are:
  ...(this is was one that was only twisted together...I re-did the twist)...

  z_ht_tc_cu_new_cm=[40   91   138  200 396  592  806   993 1298 1650  1950  2198];

A few notes about the LI-7200:

on 4/25/12 at 15:25 MST --- changed LI-7200 "bandwidth" from 20 Hz to 5 Hz
(this is under "Outputs" --> "Setup")
also, updated the DAC output for

OLD:  DAC1 co2 dry (umol/mol) 0V = 330.00   5V=430
NEW:  DAC1 co2 dry (umol/mol) 0V = 360.00   5V=450



on 4/3/12 --- changed LI-7200 sample rate from 20-Hz back to 10-Hz.

noted a few questions in the "outputs" options:
 1. the "bandwidth" is set to 20-Hz.

 2. the "Delay time(ms)" is set with an interval of "12"...
    for DAC this a delay = 172 + 12*6.667 = 252 ms.
    for SDM/RS232/Ethernet the delay = 130 + 12*6.667 = 210.0 ms

 3. under DACs it's     DAC1 co2 dry (umol/mol) 0V = 330.00   5V=430
                        (note, I need to CHANGE this sometime soon..current co2 is around 410 umol/mol)
                        DAC2 h2o dry (mmol/mol) 0V = 0   5V= 30 mmol/mol
                        (current is 290 mmol/m3)....need to convert to mmol/mol.





734: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Thu 11-Oct-2012 12:48:27 MDT, site visit on Thursday, March 29th, 2012 (SpB)
Thursday, March 29th, 2012 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: check cals of LI-6262 + N2 cyl.

Weather: warm, sunny, calm.  Almost no snow along power line.  All
exposed areas are snow-free.  (extremely dry March..maybe only a trace
of precip?)...

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Prius.

* saw a few clouds of gnats or mosquitos....

---------

* Span cylinder at 400 psi.  N2 at 400 psi.

* snow depths (BIG change over the past two weeks):

              closest to tree =  51 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe =  66 cm
               farthest probe =  68 cm


* I think maybe the inlet tubes for the LI-6262 N2/span cal
  gas have been swapped from last Dec...it was not clear to me,
  but I fiddled with it so it's working as it was previously
  (at least using the manual toggles it works fine).

* used the extra scott-marrin cylinder to test each of these two line
  for leaks (connected to the tubing at a tee near the prof box)...both
  lines seemed to hold pressure without leaking.

* borrowed the clamp-on amp meter from Kurt Knudsen to check each
  ciruit at the tower:

  Overall Usage:  approx 13 amps

  (note:  this is consistent with what Rainbow/Dave found, but
  doesn't include USGS)

  Individual Circuits at CU tower:

   1. "Outlet Below":  8.5 amps

   This runs the quacker and network swith in the quacker
   box (first goes to the UPS at 1st tower level).
   Also, in Fall 2011 added the Picarro system to this
   circuit.

   2. "Bottom Level":  3-4 amps

   This runs the pumps at the bottom of the tower..as well as
   the TGA and everything else in the TGA shed.

   3. "Middle Level":  2-3 amps (might be lower than this)

   This runs the network switch at mid-tower level.  Also,
   the LI-6251 and LI-6262.

   4. "Top Level":  2-3 amps (probably less).

   This runs the CSATs, radiation instruments.  Also,
   added LI-7200 in Fall 2011.

Friday, March 9th, 2012 Visit:
------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: get logger data.  swap prof pump.

Weather:  warm, sunny, calm.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Prius.

---------

* Span cylinder at 400 psi.  N2 at 400 psi.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree =  73 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe =  91 cm
               farthest probe =  100 cm

* from approx 14:18-15:12 MST, Changed profiler (li-6251) micropump
  (KNI unmp30)...note, I found the extra refurbished pump in the
  trailer (and used that)...it had the holes tapped so I could put
  it in the prof box....there is also a NEW pump...I was going to set
  this up in the external grey box...but never needed to do it.
  The grey box and new micropump are both in the trailer.

* from 15:29-15:33 MST, swiped the Krypton Hyg.

* at 15:45 MST, exhaled near LI-6262 inlet (as a leak check)
  [this seemed to work fine...it caused the co2 signal to clip
   and go WAY off-scale...interestingly, it also appeared to affect
   other measurements with the fast logger (not sure why that would
   happen?!?)...

* when max installed the picarro inlets they cable-tied and
  hose-clamped EVERYTHING to the tower...I was worried they had
  crushed/damaged the flux inlet tubing...and in a few spots it looks
  a bit dented (from what I could tell it's ok).  Also, they put
  zip-ties approx every 10 cm.  So, to remove anything is a royal
  pain...

* Span cylinder at 500 psi.  N2 at 800 psi.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree =  78 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe =  98 cm
               farthest probe =  104 cm

* from 13:20-13:39 MST, Changed profiler (li-6251) dessicant
  ...(note, the knf micro-pump is DYING!!)...

* at around 14:00 MST, cleaned snow of the UC PAR sensor (UC REBS was
snow-free!)...but the CNR-2 sensor was snow covered and there was ICE
on top of this sensor....it was also tilted (fixed by eye-balling
it)...

* downloaded logger data (and reset logger clocks):

NOTE:  missing on of the soil files (soil2_13b.dat)!!  Also,
lost 2 days of tc logger data because the logger filled up.

Subject: Tree at AmeriFlux tower...

Hi,

fyi---I took a closer look at the tree which fell near the ameriflux
tower...and I noticed it is actually leaning on one of the guy
wires...the tower does not seem to be affected at all and the guy wire
was tight, but not overly-tight (from what I could tell)...

here are a few photos:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/111124/pic00019.jpg
http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/111124/pic00018.jpg

the tree didn't snap off, but instead it tipped over with the roots
still partially in the ground, ie:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/111115/pic00014.jpg

it's only the top 1-2' that are on the guy wire...I was a bit wary to
cut the tree without ropes and/or other support because I didn't want
it to swing down and hit the guy wire below it...it might also come
close to the fence around the tower (or possibly the laser
shed)....

my question: is there a procedure which needs to be followed or should
we just set a day to do this?  John, which saw did you use for the
tree along the trail?  (there is small hand saw in the laser shed, but
it would be nice to have a bigger/better one)..

Purpose of visit: check on N2 cylinder (seems to be empty?)

Weather: not bad.  the snow is cold/nice.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* Max and his team was up there making some mods to the system.

---------

* Span cylinder at 830 psi.  N2 at 0 psi.

* snow depths:

       TP101 461 middle probe =  57 cm
               farthest probe =  59 cm

* at 10 MST, swapped N2 cylinder; old=cc262398, new=cc63143

* NOTE: No longer doing cals with LI-6262

* messed around with trying to find a leak in the N2 line...it
definitely seemed to run out before it should have.  in the end I
capped the calibration gases (both N2 and span) from going up to the
LI-6262 box.  [note, this worked without any leaks].  Need to test the
individual lines going into the LI-6262 and make sure the valves are
still holding pressure...

Weather: windy at times...snowing at times.  not too cold, but winter
has arrived.  lots of trees damaged/broken by wind over the weekend.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* John Knowles was doing stuff--he's on a Tuesday schedule now.

* power-cycled the picarro for max.  We had a power outage between 11/12-11/14.

* streamlined the fast logger a bit...also, I think
there was a MISTAKE in chan201 for ops58.

-------------------------------------------------


* list of stuff modified/damaged by wind:

  - some trees down along trail to tower.  One (probably 1-2'
    diameter?) is blocking the trail.  John Knowles said this tree was
    across the trail on 11/8 and probably fell the previous weekend
    (Nov 5-6).  It had snapped off about 3 feet from the ground.

  - a tree near the base of the western guy wire support fell
    over...if it had fallen all the way, it might have fallen between
    the fence and laser shed, but a few trees blocked it.

  - the 21.5m csat had slid along the tower tubing at the west end so
    it was pushed near the krypton...I moved it back to the original
    location (marked on the tower strut by black sharpie).  the back
    support held fast.

  - One of the 16m prop-vane boom supports broke...the boom was wedged
    at an angle near 16-m the level.  the other support (east side)
    was still holding it to the tower.  replaced back support with a
    u-bolt (much more solid than the old support).  Note: should check
    how the top-level prop-vane is supported...

  - top prof inlet had come free and was dangling about two levels
    down.  it had become tangled in the thermocouple wire (note, i
    never cleaned up that thermocouple wire!)...i had to shorten the
    dekaron tubing by about 2m so the upper inlet is now at 19m (not
    21m).

  - rain gauge "bucket" had come loose.  the screws holding it were
    gone.  I kluged support with a bungee cord and duct tape (note:
    need to bring small machine screws from trailer to the tower)...

  - canopy access tower along trail is leaning against a pair of
    trees.

  - i think all other instruments, guy wires, and towers are ok.  USGS
    tower was still there (but didn't go over to check it more
    carefully).

* PARTIAL download of soil logger data (the battery was running low).

Friday, November 4th, 2011 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB, DS

Purpose of visit: add new thumb drive to LI-7200, deploy
cnr4, get logger data.

Weather:   fairly windy.  not too cold.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU prius

*

---------

* Span cylinder at XXX psi.  N2 at ? psi.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree =  21 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe =  32 cm
               farthest probe =  32 cm

* notes about the installation about the cnr2 net radiometer:

  * serial no.  080146      sensitivity:  shortwave:  15.32 muV/(W/m2)
                                          longwave:  11.61 muV/(W/m2)

  * to make sure the values were properly digested by the quacker
    I added a gain factor of "100"...eg,

       s_Rsw_net_cnr2_raw= s_Rsw_net_cnr2; clear s_Rsw_net_cnr2
       s_Rlw_net_cnr2_raw= s_Rlw_net_cnr2; clear s_Rlw_net_cnr2

       s_Rsw_net_cnr2_mV= s_Rsw_net_cnr2_raw./100;
       s_Rlw_net_cnr2_mV= s_Rlw_net_cnr2_raw./100;

   then, convert to physical units, ie:

      s_Rsw_net_cnr2= (1000./15.32).*s_Rsw_net_cnr2_mV;
      s_Rlw_net_cnr2= (1000./11.61).*s_Rlw_net_cnr2_mV;

* started ingesting LI-7200 data into the FAST data logger...the
DAC settings in the LI-7220 are:

   co2 dry (umol/mol) = [330 430]
   h2o dry (mmol/mol) = [0 30];

to get these into physical units:

   s_co2_li7200_mV= s_co2_li7200;   clear s_co2_li7200;
   s_h2o_li7200_mV= s_h2o_li7200;   clear s_h2o_li7200;

   co2_low=330;   co2_high=430;  R=5000;
   s_co2_li7200=(co2_high-co2_low)./R.*s_co2_li7200_mV + co2_low;

   h2o_low=0;   h2o_high=30;  R=5000;
   s_h2o_li7200=(h2o_high-h2o_low)./R.*s_h2o_li7200_mV + h2o_low;



* modified UCB and "FAST" logger programs...(the fast logger is
actually running at 5 Hz!!  (didn't notice this until after I
left))...ugh!

  removed p.kPa from FAST logger (fast_14.csi)

* tried to streamline the fast ec logger program (removed licor 7500
pressure, changed li-7200 from diff to SE channels) because t.ec was
spiking a lot...not sure what caused the problem, but the program is
actually SLOWER now....

* added the cnr2 net radiation sensor to the UCB logger.

Friday, October 21st, 2011 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: restore LI-7200, re-deploy EOL CSAT-3
box, swap span.

Weather:   fairly windy.  not too cold.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU jeep (picked up N2 cylinders from campus).

*

---------

* Span cylinder at 200 psi.  N2 at ? psi.

* modified "FAST" logger program...(this took several
iterations since the logger is near it's max output)...

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     7991 Oct 21 14:33 fast_13.csi*

* started ops57:

* changed the program for chan 201 (fast logger) to add the
output from the LI-7200 (though the wires are not there yet).
note: i had to mess around with it a bit because the sample
rate was off with early iterations of the program (fast_13.csi)...

Hi Sean,

ptpd is running on both russter2 and lynette, and they both seem to
be sending data to an IP address hardcoded in the binary. Here is some
interface capture output from russter2:

14:50:09.391558 IP russter2.colorado.edu.319 > ptp-primary.mcast.net.319: UDP, length 124
14:50:11.391696 IP russter2.colorado.edu.319 > ptp-primary.mcast.net.319: UDP, length 124
14:50:13.390832 IP russter2.colorado.edu.319 > ptp-primary.mcast.net.319: UDP, length 124
14:50:13.392006 IP lynette.colorado.edu.319 > ptp-primary.mcast.net.319: UDP, length 124

I've restarted ptpd on russter2 with a PTP subdomain set to 'russter',
starting ptpd on lynette with the same option should allow these two
machines to talk directly instead of trying to sync with this remote
server.

Here is the full command used to start ptpd on russter2:

ptpd -t -s 1 -i NTP -b eth0 -p -S -n russter

Running /usr/local/ptpd/bin/ptpd --help will briefly explain what these
options are, and unfortunately this is the best resource for documentation
apart from digging in the source. I also found this page useful:

http://www.nist.gov/el/isd/ieee/terms1588.cfm

I hope this helps,

Eric

how to reset the LI-7200 remotely:

Subject: RE: LI-COR PTPd clock setup


  Hi Sean.


   To reboot the system remotely you need to send the following command to the instrument:

   (LI7200(Program(Reset TRUE)))


   You can do this by connecting to the instrument with the Windows
   interface application, select settings and click the manual tab.
   Here you are presented with a dialog to enter commands.  Paste the
   command and press "Send Command".

   Alternately, you can connect to the instrument on port 7200 and send the same command followed by a newline character.

Friday, September 23rd, 2011 Visit:
-------------------------------------
At the site: SpB, NT, B, CG, +

Purpose of visit: move li-7200 to 21.5m, be on-site for
power shutdown.

Weather:   Beautiful Fall day.  The aspens are in full
color...

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up my jeep.

* John Layden was there with a small crew to add the power splice out
to the new shed...

* Chris gray came up and cleaned up the area around the Bowling shed.
...(we decided to lay the tubing in a line near the trail)...

* Ben/Nicole trenched conduit across trail and ran it out to the
new shed...

---------

* Span cylinder at 400 psi.  N2 at 400 psi.

* the power outage was from approx 9:20-11:00 MDT....

* bought a few nu-rail crosses to install the LI-7200 on the tower
(though the inlet is long enough that it doesn't need to go out too
far...which is good because the LI-7200 is not light!)...what worked
was the 1" x 1" cross...and the post fit in the 3/4" cross (which
surprised me a bit after reading the LI-COR documentation)...

* downloaded the li-7200 data from my thumb drive...and installed
the new thumb drive (that is empty).

* changed the clock setting from MDT to UTC...also corrected for the
big offset....it was in "automatic" mode, but the PTP did not seem to
be working (it was off by approx 20 minutes)...

* moved the LI-7200 up to 21.5m, but didn't have time to move the boxes
and run the longer network cable...

Saturday, September 10th, 2011 Visit:
-------------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: download logger data, install li-7200,
clean shed.

Weather:   pretty nice fall day (some threat of rain, but then
clear, sunny and calm).

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up my jeep.

* setup the li-7200 borrowed from neon, inc.  picked this up after
work on friday....

* finally found the new shed made by nicole and the doe team.  also
saw the tubing that needs to be cleaned up near that area (email with
Chris Gray about this)...

---------

* Span cylinder at 500 psi.  N2 at 700 psi.

* details about the LI-7200 (sn AIU-0366) installation (wanted to put
  it at 21.5m, but instead it's at approx 13m):

  - didn't have any nu-rail crosses to mount the LI-7200 (thought I
    could get this at McGuckins, but they didn't have it)...also,
    thought one might be at the site (it wasn't).  the li-7200 was
    heavier than I expected so I mounted it on the tower stairs and
    supported the inlet with the tower tubing....

  - mounting hardware to mount vertically was too small (tubing too
    big) so the boxes are all laying on the walkup tower.  note that
    andrew had a similar problem with LI-7500 so he drilled new holes
    in the mounting brackets....see:

     http://urquell.colorado.edu/photos/110910/pic00015.jpg

    (check with NEON it it's ok to drill holes in these brackets, also,
    I only have one set of brackets).

  - disconnected the rs232 and "aux input" cables from the LI-7550
    control box (these are in the cardboard box from neon).  note the
    "aux input" cable does not seem quite finished (ie, the heat
    shrink is not shrunk?)...see photo.

  - there was no usb drive with the LI-7200 (surprise!...so I used my
    own, dumped files off my usb onto plumwood)....this seemed to work.

  - need a longer network cable to reach the tower network switch (also
    bring a network rj45 "coupler" and longer cable...).

  - worked with DHCP, but setup with a spare fixed IP
    (lynette.colorado.edu), was able to ftp files back to plumwood
    (need windows software, is there a way to do this with ftp?)....

  - still need to ground the boxes....

  - using the windows setup, changed logging rate to 20-hz...then
    thought it would be better to have it at 10-hz (for initial
    testing)...currently sampling all possible variables (some of
    these can be reduced later)...also reduced the flow rate in the
    li7200-101 flow module from 18 lpm to 15 lpm (the pump sounded
    much happier)...i think the time is currently set to MDT...should
    change to UTC...the current settings are saved as:

Subject: new shed power

Hi all,

I have received a quote from Rainbow Electric regarding
providing power to the new shed for our DOE project.  To
remind you, this shed will be located ~200 m east of the CU
tower in the center of the girdling chronosequence.  This
will be tapped off the existing powerline to the tower near
the right-angle bend in the trail.  The conductor will be
housed in conduit and the length of run to the new shed will
be < 300 feet.

Rainbow tells me that the feed from the main at the road can
supply 64 A at 120 VAC to all operations (C1-CUFF-trailer,
CU flux tower, USGS tower, my TDL shed, the new shed, and
any other add-on projects that happen).  Current use for
everything connected (C1-CUFF-trailer, CU flux tower, USGS
tower, my TDL shed) is 14 A.  Hence there is ample power
available to supply the new shed.  None of the decisions
below impact availability of power to supply current needs
(you don't need to worry about your supply, what I am adding
is trivial compared to the excess we have available).  You
will all be given adequate advance knowledge of power
interruption when this is installed.  John Laydon estimates
all power to tower operations will be shut down for <1/2 day.

A decision needs to be made regarding conductor diameter,
keeping in mind any future expansion that might occur in the
vicinity of the girdling plots.  We can wire this up with #4
AWG wire, which would ultimately allow (but not require) the
full 64 A to be used at the new location.  This could
potentially provide, for example, power to add anything else
that you might think up for any MRS project (even power
hungry projects like heat lamps).

Alternatively, we can do this with #8 AWG.  The latter is a
several hundred dollars cheaper and provides all the power I
need (a 20 A circuit, likely I will use 5 A or so).  I
prefer to go with this cheaper option but since several of
you are in this for the long term, I wanted to get your
opinions.

The full quotes are $7127 and $6754.  Russ, we have $5000
budgeted for this.  CU Fac Man is involved and will be
taking their (extremely vague) skim off the top.  John
Laydon assures me that we can stay under the $5000 budget if
we provide student labor (Nicole's crew) to haul and screw
together the conduit and use the existing (extra)
transformer at the tower (Sean, it turns out this is useful).

I will proceed with installation of #8 wire unless I hear
otherwise.  Please provide your comments by *Aug 12* as we
want to have this done by Oct 1 and I expect the
full-runaround from Fac Man.  I'll assume if you don't
respond that you are ok with this plan (although I'd
appreciate hearing that directly instead of guessing).

Russ, I would like to hear from you regardless that it's ok
to proceed since you will sign the check (this is in your
portion of the DOE budget).

Thanks everyone for your help and patience with this.

Best,
Dave

715: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Tue 09-Oct-2012 17:10:37 MDT, site visit on Thursday, July 21st, 2011 (SpB, RM, + flux class)
Thursday, July 21st, 2011 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB, + flux class

Purpose of visit: tour of tower by the NSF flux class.

Weather:   Pleasant.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up the suburban (and got a flat on the way back down!!)

*

---------

* Span cylinder at 1000 psi.  N2 at 590 psi.

* installed the new blackbox media converter box in the trailer (so
now the forestcam connection is working).



714: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Tue 09-Oct-2012 17:08:44 MDT, site visit on Friday, July 15th, 2011 (SpB)
Friday, July 15th, 2011 Visit:
------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: swap REBs domes, check forestcam problem.  install
MATLAB.

Weather: Hot.   there was a steady breeze up on the
tower, but warm.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Monson prius.  parked at MRS, duane gave me a ride to
  C1.

* stopped at MRS to help load matlab onto the flux class laptops.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1100 psi.  N2 at 890 psi.

* from 11:10-11:40 MST, swapped REBs domes.  NOTE, the apiration fan
was not turning...but i gave it a small "push" and then it started to
turn.  this fan should probably be replaced...

* tested the netgear network switch for the webcams.  it seemed fine
(ie, i could connect to the forestcam from the quacker box), but the
fiber-to-copper converter in the trailer seemed to have a problem and
no comm lights were flashing (the other end of the fiber line had
flashing lights).  [note: I could use the rj45 cable that goes to the
black box mini converter to connect with plumwood to connect to campus
so it was not an issue with either the cable or hub in the trailer...]

update on 7/18/2011: ordered a new fiber-to-copper converter from
black box (old one was under 6-year warranty...but need to find
invoice from this purchase).

* downloaded logger data (updated clocks using time.gov):

Friday, July 8th, 2011 Visit:
------------------------------
At the site: SpB, NT, E, B

Purpose of visit:  remove P sensor, check ATI k-probe, logger data.

Weather: Variable.  Sunny in the morning and then clouded up
and threatened rain.  Rain never happened.  Then cleared up and
was a bit breezy.  Then threatened rain again (a few drops fell).

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Monson suburban with Nicole/Emily/Ben.

* como creek is still quite high....overflowing at the 2nd
bridge.

* took a hike west of the tower...found a few things left from the
TRAM/PAR experiement (strap on a tree, bags, cabling), etc.  Also,
near the west robot a BIG tree had snapped off...it took out a few
smaller trees, but didn't hit the robot tower.....

* nicole, et al were doing soil respiration stuff.

* russ and dave moore were filming for RKMs new webpage.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1100 psi.  N2 at 890 psi.

* at approx 10:00 MST, power-cycled the ATI k-probe (this fixed the problem)

 * at approx 10:30 MST, modified orientation of krypton
hygrometer...the detector tube should be pointed AWAY from the sun.
Note the detector tube is the SHORTER of the two tubes....I oriented
it so that the shorter tube is pointing DOWN (this what eol does, eg,
see CHATS photos).

* from 11:00-11:40 MST, removed eol P sensors and data system.  returned all
this stuff to Gordons office at NCAR.

* from 13:50-14:15 MST, replaced 3 lowest inlet filters for co2 profile system

* tried to download logger data from brent/dustin cr1000...but it wouldn't
let me connect!?

* downloaded logger data:

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011 Visit:
-------------------------------
At the site: SpB, MW, + Soil Class.

Purpose of visit:  tour of site for class, swap N2, get logger data.

Weather: Cool and breezy in the morning (wall cloud at divide).  Then
the winds calmed and it warmed up a bit.  Still a surprising amount of
snow in the forest.  They are becoming snow "islands".  Como creek is
flowing strongly now.


--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Monson jeep.

* forgot to take aspen photo---aspens along peak-to-peak are fully
leafed out.

* in the morning a soil class from CSU was visiting the site (Mark W
was leading the tour at C1, the class also visited the tower and then
went to sample soils).  Nicole gave me info about the girdled plots.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1300 psi.  N2 at 0 psi --> 1850 psi.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree =  12 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe =  42 cm
               farthest probe =  38 cm

* From 11:30-12:20 MST, swapped N2 cylinder; old= cc17742, new=cc302236

* downloaded logger data (clocks reset to time.gov):

* note, there is a still a bit of snow covering the pressure port near
the ground....see photos for details.

* from 13:15-13:30 MST, swapped pressure sensors (moved "B4" sensor
from 12m to blue box; moved sensor "B7" from blue box up to 12m).

* also, confirmed that the pressure sensors were still configured correctly:

Friday, June 3rd, 2011 Visit:
-----------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit:  move gas cylinders around.

Weather: Clear, sunny and warm.  Clouded up a bit in the afternoon.
the road to C1 was opened today.  Surprising how much snow is still in
the forest.  Still not much post-holing, but como creek is getting
bigger and snow is pretty soft off the trail.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU Monson jeep.

* apsen trees at the site are still not leafing out.  but the ones
along the peak-to-peak are just starting to leaf out.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1400 psi.  N2 at 400 psi.

* snow depths (not checked).

* turned on the fans in the LI-COR and quacker boxes (we are
supposed to have HOT weather for the next week or so)....

* moved up 3 cylinders from campus:

cc302236      N2    tower          moved to tower on 6/3/11, ordered by Russ, delivered 6/11/09 (probably for flux class?)
SG91667447BAL span  trlr/ground    moved to trailer on 6/3/11, date is approx 2004, pressure in Nov 2010 was 1300 psi.
cc301525      N2    trlr/ground    moved to trailer on 6/3/11, ordered by Russ, delivered 6/11/09 (probably for flux class?)

* brought 4 empty cylinders down to MRS (didn't yet fill out the form!):

cc253014      N2    trlr/inside    moved to MRS on 6/2/11, retired on 12/2/2010 (0 psi), started on 9/13/2010 @2300 psi, moved to tower 7/1/10,
cc282442      N2    trlr/outside   moved to MRS on 6/2/11, moved to trlr on 2/16/11, retired on 2/4/2011 (0 psi), started on 12/2/2010,
cc262287      N2    trlr/outside   moved to MRS on 6/2/11, started on 2/4/2011, moved to tower on 9/13/2010, delivered on 9/8/09,
cc153480      span  trlr (inside)  moved to MRS on 6/2/11, retired on 4/20/2011 (at approx 20 psi), started on 11/19/2010, moved to tower on 2/11/09

* between 12:28-12:31 MST, zeroed LI-6262 and made a slight
flow-rate adjustment.

* moved the eol pressure sensor ("B8", ch1) from 11m up to 21.5m.
Installed it where the krypton hygrometer is usually located.

* downloaded logger data:

709: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Tue 09-Oct-2012 16:52:12 MDT, site visit on Thursday, May 26th, 2011 (SpB)
Thursday, May 26th, 2011 Visit:
-------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit:  swap dessicant trap, download logger data.

Weather: Cloudy with sun.  Feels a bit humid.  Still lots of snow, but
the melt is starting!  Snow was "hard" in the morning, but softened up
by the afternoon.  Still not much post-holing.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU prius.

* As usual, Dean + crew was up in the afternoon (we seem to pick
the same "nice weather" days to go up to the site).

---------

* Span cylinder at 1500 psi.  N2 at 600 psi.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = buried
       TP101 461 middle probe = 135 cm
               farthest probe = 140 cm
      (might need to check these with photo to confirm?)

* switched eol pressure sensors SW4 to "on" so that the sampling
method could be changed:

   -at 1255 MST, switched sensor "B4" to ON (on tower)
   -at 1310 MST, switched sensor "B7" to ON (snow, in blue box)

* when i got back to the trailer (around 2:30 MST), I logged into
the eol system and then used rserial to change the settings on the
vaisala ptb220 P sensors (details are below).

* at 12:30ish MST, cleared out the snow from the lowest to
prof inlets (the snow was over the 2nd-lowest (1-meter) inlet).

* from approx 12:17 - 12:33 MST, swapped out the dessicant on the profiler (li-6251).
    - at 12:17 MST, did zero, co2 approx 0.03 mV  (seemed slow? slightly clogged trap?)
    - at 12:31 MST, did zero + blow test (ok).
                (zero is approx 0.002 mV).
    - at 12:33 MST, back to auto mode.  flow rate at ~13.

    - note, I watched it for one cycle and it seemed "ok"...but
      when i got back to the trailer p.prof was a mess....co2.prof
      would spike for Lev2 and the p.prof value was genearlly
      too low (i think this means a constriction, but not sure why lev2
      was so different??...anyway, hiked back to tower and made sure the
      tubing was straight and wasn't being pinched when closing
      the door.  it then seemed "ok" and p.prof was stable.

* downloaded logger data (no major time problems):

%% as a side note, I checked the other sensors and found
that sensor "B4" was also using format 4.2 but sensor
"B7" (undersnow) was already using format 4.3, ie:

trying to change the eol P sensor to 10-hz:
-------------------------------------------

notes from a 5/12/2011 meeting with gordon:

* we initially tried to use "rserial" to change the settings....it did
not work...we also tried using "minicom"...the communication with the
ptb did not seem to be working....gordon (and I) were a bit confused
about this.  So we setup a similar system in the lab to test
things...one difference with the one in the lab is there there were a
2nd set of jumpers that the "B8" sensor did not have...we eventually
figured out that you need to send an "s"  to stop the data and
then it can accept other commands...and an "r" to re-start the
data...so this looks something like:

* note, we also changed the INTV setting on serial chan 2 (sensor
"B4"), but this did not create real hi-rate data...it gave 10 constant
values for 1 second.  To change this the dip switch #4 needs to be
flipped to the ON position...

* to do minicom, do:   minicom ttyS1

* "adn" shuts down the pressure data system
  "aup" boots up the pressure data system...


and to check the data stats:

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011 Visit:
----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit:  added p' port for new pressure sensors, download
logger data, etc...

Weather: Feels a LOT like spring.  Some big puffy convective
clouds...above freezing.  Very windy/blustery.  The clouds were moving
fast...the upper surface of the snow seemed to be a bit wet....John K
said the snowpack has gone isothermal (and I believe it!).

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU prius

* stopped by McGuckins for tubing, bungees, and zip ties.

* note, my watch battery was dead...but I synced plumwood to time.gov
before leaving the trailer.

---------

* Span cylinder at 400 psi.  N2 at 700 psi.

* snow depths:

              closest to tree =   83 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe =   107 cm
               farthest probe =   113 cm

* used the clamp-on amp meter and split extention cord (borrowed from
Kurt Knudson at NCAR) to measure the power used in the bowling shed
(approx 6 amps at startup, and then 3.6 amps under steady conditions).

* note, that our clamp-on meter also works...it seems difficult to
read...compared to the one from NCAR...it looks like you can set the
range to "Amps 6" and then use the middle Amps scale...this has
markings like: 0 10 20 30 40 50 60....the power to the shed comes out
to be around "40"...which we thought might be "4.0 Amps"?  [note, this
should be 3.6 Amps]....

* installed the two "p'" inlet ports to the tower.  I also bought a
smaller (1/4" OD) tubing that can be used to splice the p' port tubing
to the transducer.  This smaller tubing seems to work well...note:

   - at around 1pm connected North p' port (at 12m) to sensor B8
   - the South p' port (also at 12m), is unconnected right now.

* also added the smaller tubing to the "undersnow" transducer (the
previous connection seemed quite loose...so the new tubing connector
might change things a bit??)...

* updated met logger to met_07.csi, output the pressure (Ptot.18m) as
"high" resolution rather than low-res.

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster    12053 Mar 16 11:07 met_07.csi*

* started ops55 to take into account hi-res Ptot.18m.

here is the OLD resolution (using OPS=54):

prep -D Ptot.18m -f -B "11 03 10 7:0:0" -E "11 03 10 7:10:0" -t -A "%4.2f" | more

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011 Visit:
---------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit:  setup new pressure sensors/ data system,
download logger data...

Weather: Feels a bit like spring.  Some big puffy convective
clouds...above freezing.  Some signs of melted snow over the past few
days (which have been quite warm)...

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU prius

* stopped by NCAR FL to pickup the data system, etc.

---------

* Span cylinder at 580 psi.  N2 at 1100 psi.

* borrowed a sled from MRS, hauled up the new data system and pressure
sensors.  (rode the sled back down the hill which was FAST!)....

* setup the new data system as "isff".  It seems to be working:

-r--r--r--    1 root     root       496208 Mar  3 17:17 pressure_20110303_160000.dat

but I need to check these data and figure out how to dump them into
ASCII...

* details about the pressure sensors setup:

  - chan1, U4110003, "B8"   setup near the CU P sensor (no inlet port used)
  - chan2, S0610001, "B4"   setup near the CU P sensor (no inlet port used)
  - chan3, U4110001, "B7"   connected to the undersnow P inlet port

* here are a few useful commands:

* to get the data back to russter2 here is what I did:

added the line to my .cshrc:    set today = `date -u +%Y%m%d`

then can use:

to check files:   rsync rsync://198.11.18.38/data/NIWOT/raw_data/

  to get files:

rsync --exclude="*${today}_*" -av --dry-run rsync://198.11.18.38/data/NIWOT/raw_data/ /tmp

(note, this is a "dry-run" so it won't do anything)....

what I should do is:

rsync --exclude="*${today}_*" -av --dry-run rsync://198.11.18.38/data/NIWOT/raw_data/ /data/projects/NIWOT/raw_data/all/

to actually get the data files do:

rsync --exclude="*${today}_*" -av rsync://198.11.18.38/data/NIWOT/raw_data/ /data/projects/NIWOT/raw_data/all/

to remove the files after getting them do:

rsync --exclude="*${today}_*" -av --remove-sent-files rsync://198.11.18.38/data/NIWOT/raw_data/ /data/projects/NIWOT/raw_data/all/

here is the result:

  gordon,

  thanks...i think it's working, i just need
  to setup the sensors....which i'm doing now...
  1 and 3 are connected....i think i'm all set...

  i'll give you a call tomorrow to chat more
  about dumping the data....and make sure i'ts really
  workikng..

  thanks!

---------

* there was a power outage at around 7:30 MST...i thought russter2
might need to be power-cycled, but at 7pm it came back on.  The
quacker was up but the data system was not archiving the data...it
looked like:

So I did:

 ndaqrestart quacker

waited a short while, and then data started coming
in...ie:

then redo "check_aster", ie:

Friday, December 31st, 2010 Visit:
----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit:  check problem with russter2.

Weather: Extreme cold.  It was also windy and there
was lots of blowing snow.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

* never went to the tower, only the trailer.

* happy new year with pei!

---------

* Span cylinder at ? psi.  N2 at ? psi.

* to my surprise russter2 was up and running!  And the data had been
collected since we lost communications sometime on 24 Dec.  It turns
out there was an issue with the network card to the outside world
(eth0).  Orrie thought it might be a configuration/software problem
and we tried quite a few things to figure it out....i also tried the
obvious things like a new network cable, different port on the hub,
etc.  Also, the cable/hub used for russter2 worked just fine when i
connected to the network with one of the dell laptops...

* in the end we couldn't figure it out, but i'll go back up again next
week to deal with it (and hopefully bring a replacement network card
if that is available)...

Purpose of visit:  get soil/tc logger data.

Weather: Snowing pretty hard (and windy).  My tracks to the tower were
almost completely covered by the time I was coming back (only 1.5
hrs).  The storm did not go very far east of the site.  More snow than
I expected in the trees (knee-deep).

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up SpB Jeep.

*

---------

* Span cylinder at 1450 psi.  N2 at 1450 psi.

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit:  swap GAST pump.

Weather: It was much windier than I liked because I was swapping the
2-micron filter at the 21.5m inlet.  Could have been worse, but it was
not ideal.  As I was finishing the wind started dying down a bit...

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU malibu (was supposed to have a prius).

* the gast pump died early Monday morning.  kurt was kind enough
to kill the power to it late on monday.

* went to FEF on Tue so couldn't come up until wed.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1600 psi.  N2 at 1710 psi.

* with orries help, figured out that the thumbdrive in the trailer was
having a problem when connecting to russter2 (so the usb ports are
ok).  [try to reformat it?]

* from ~10:30-11:30 MST, swapped out gast pump for LI-6262 (replaced with a new pump)

* no surprise that the pump died because it has been running for around
 2 years (with one swap of the vanes last summer).

* had a spare GAST pump in the trailer that I used (also, ordered a
new one during the week of 12/13).

* at 9:30 MST, rebooted russter2 (to update kernel, etc)

* from 11:30-12:00 MST, replaced 2-micron Nupro filters in LI-6262 system (at inlet only)

* at 12:15 MST, adjusted cal gas flows (and re-zeroed) LI-6262

* at ~12:30 MST, swapped N2 (old cylinder=CC253014 at 0 psi, new
  cylinder= CC282442) (also re-did the swage fitting to regulator, it
  had a small leak)

---------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit:  swap dessicant, download logger data.

Weather: windy, but not too cold.  We have had very strong
winds the past few days.  And the ground is now snow-covered.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up a CU Pruis.  Saw smoke to the west as I was heading from
  Marine St...was planning to stop by McGuckins, but I bypassed that
  and made a beeline for cayon road.  The "dome" fire was just
  starting and I made it up the canyon before the road closed....

* moved the HYDRA out of N324 and into my office when I got back to
  campus.

* made 3 trips to/from tower...once for a power outage...once at the
  very end of the day to try and fix the flow in the LI-6251 (which is
  better, but still a problem as of 11/2/2010).

---------

* Span cylinder at 350 psi.  N2 at 950 psi.

* setup the pressure inlet near the ground...see photos.  (need to get
some extra tubing and "connector tubing" to extend this line a bit)...

* from 14:23-14:37 MST, Changed profiler (li-6251) dessicant

* John Knowles noticed a cylinder of hydrogen at the tower....here
is a summary of what we found out about this:

Hi Dean,

thanks for solving this "mystery" for us!  I think we can bring the
cylinder back to airgas sometime over the winter (once the snow gets
deeper it will be easier to slide out of there)....John, will that be
possible?  my guess is that this cylinder of hydrogen was used to run
a fuel cell....does that sound familiar at all?  Once we get the
correct cylinder numbers, I think airgas will be able to tell us who
originally ordered it....also, it is tagged with ramaley N1B68 which
is a good clue...

Linda, do you happen to recall who would have had cylinders
stored/delivered in room N1B68?  (this might have been 7-8 years
ago)...when I first started working at CU in 2003 part of the Monson
Lab was in room N1B46, but I don't think we used N1B68 for
anything....

thanks!

wind, etc.

---------

* Span cylinder at 750 psi.  N2 at 2100 psi.

* when i was adding thermocouples to the am25ts I realized that I
never modified the ucb logger program to take into account the change
in thermocouple type (it's now using E-type rather than T-type).  So I
made this change and uploaded the new program (ucb_13.csi).

-rwxr-xr-x  1 sburns aster     9011 Sep 20 10:56 ucb_13.csi*

* setup the AM25T comparisons in the trailer (it was in Ramaley).
  Used the 21x and am25t_02.csi program.

* also reconnected the tubing for the LI-6251 calibrations.
NOTE: need to convert the splus programs into MATLAB!

dowel holding the probe was snapped.  I put it back to 20cm as best I
could.

* turned off fan in LI-6262 box (but left the LI-6251 box fan on).

* I checked the LI-6262 pressures/flow during the 12:10 MST cal.  Made
a slight adjustment for the span: from 8.56 up to 8.93 lpm.

Purpose of visit: swap dessicant, change N2 cylinder.

Weather: Lots of smoke in boulder canyon on the way up (it was clear
on the way back down).  Large dispersed area of smoke off to the east.
The light downslope winds kept it mostly clear near the tower.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up the CU Jeep.



---------

* Span cylinder at 870 psi.  N2 at 50 psi.

* Swapped N2 cylinder (now using what is left of cc198609)

Purpose of visit: swap dessicant, change N2 cylinder.

Weather: Very strong downslope winds.  The fourmile canyon
fire started at around 10am today.  Could see the big
plume from the site.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up the CU Jeep.  Had to drive down coal creek canyon to get
back to Boulder.

* was also going to work on aircoa at T-van.


---------

* Span cylinder at 900 psi.  N2 at 300 psi.

* decided to go to T-van first (rather than the AmeriFlux tower).
This turned out to be a good decision because the power went out at
around noon (while I was at T-van).  By the time I was back in the
trailer the power was back on...as I was working there on russter2
(found out a few details about the fire, etc), it went off again.

* i left the area without the power coming back on.  And without
visiting the tower (decided to return on Tue).

------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: Download logger data, put matlab on the flux class
laptops.

Weather: Very Warm.  But it was a bit gusty above the trees.  So
working on the tower was cooler.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up the CU Jeep.

* Dean Anderson was up there with a crew of three (to service tower
instruments, swap inlet filters, etc.

* Russ/Dave Moore were at MRS with the laptops.

---------

* Span cylinder at 1450 psi.  N2 at 1850 psi.

* turned the fan in the bowling TGA shed from Med to High.

* The network went down while I was at the tower---this seemed to be a
problem with a flakey power strip in the network closet at MRS (I was
there when it happened and I met matt reynolds (nednet)).

* the matlab install worked when going from the DVD.  Over the network
it was REALLY slow (partially because i tried to install simumlink and
all the toolboxes too)....

* drove/hiked up to T-van to service the AIRCOA micropump.  This took
about 3 hours (and now the high-P check is ok).

* Brent had already hauled most of his stuff to the tower by the time
i was back at C1.  He set his things up on the N Canopy Tower.

Purpose of visit: put up new boom for 21.5m csat.

Weather: Clear and sunny in the morning.  Upslope winds.  Clouds built
up and it became pretty stormy around 2pm.  After that there was a
some brief clearing, but still storms visible in the distance.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up the NCAR Truck (was hoping to go to T-van, plus used
it to bring up the boom).

* Jen rode her bike up to MRS and I met her there.

* didn't have time to make it to T-van...but I can do this
on Monday...

---------

* Span cylinder at 1450 psi.  N2 at 1850 psi.

* transported two new n2 cylinders out to the tower: cc253014,
  cc262389 (...still have 3 more new N2 cylinders on the ground near
  the trailer that need to go out to the tower)....

* cc264923 (approx 200 psi) was halfway down the path; now it's at the
  front of the trailer.

* setup a new boom for the csat at 21.5m (borrowed from NCAR/EOL)..note:

  -- this boom puts the 21.5m csat about 20-30cm LOWER than it was
  before....

  -- you need to have a 9/16" socket wrench in order to tighten the
  csat to this boom (it's a very specific fit)!!  We wound up
  borrowing a socket from Duane...and even that didn't fit through the
  outer hole, but it was possible to detach the extender from the
  socket and make it work that way.  A wrench does not work because
  the csat gets in the way

  -- We didn't use the "clamshell" parts to guy-wire the boom to the
  tower---the boom is u-bolted to the tower cross-bars and sits across
  the short-width of the tower.  It's actually designed to fit on the
  outside of the shortside of the tower--see photos from CME04 (might
  try this sometime in the future).  For now, the extra parts are in
  the laser shed...

* downloaded logger data (no time problems, but it was in the middle
of the thunderstorm!):

(note, i went back and did the final soil download after the storm had
passed and we had finished setting up the csat which is why there is a
two hour break between files)...

---------

* Span cylinder at 1590 psi.  N2 at 250 psi --> 2400 psi.

* from ~10:40-11:50 MST, swapped N2 cylinder
(old cylinder= cc264923 at 250 psi, new cylinder= CC264964, at 2400 psi)

* i think the pressure in the new cylinder was bit high because it was
lying in the sun?...

* from 10:20 - 10:35 MST, swapped out the dessicant on the profiler (li-6251).
    - at 10:20 MST, did zero, co2 approx 0.035 mV
    - at 10:34 MST,  did zero + blow test (ok).
                (zero is approx -0.005 mV).
    - at 10:35 MST,  back to auto mode.  flow rate at ~14.

* from 11:16-11:50 MST, swapped out the 2-micron nupro filter at the
  li-6262 inlet.  sample flow increased from 8.25 to 9.35

* from 11:52-11:55 MST, adjusted the flow rate in the LI-6262.

Monday, November 30th, 2009 Visit:
----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: move plugs for LI-CORs....

Weather: Clear and sunny in the morning.  Then some high clouds moved
in.  It was calm most of the time, but there were a few wintry wind
gusts.  Very warm for the last day in November.  Except for a dusting,
I don't think it has snowed significantly since just before my last
visit...

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove the CU compact.

---------

* Span cylinder at 300 psi.  N2 at 1700 psi

* dragged a new N2 cylinder (cc198609) to the tower and set it up at
  the base of the tower; hauled an empty one (cc264924) back to the
  trailer...

* snow depths:

              closest to tree = 14 cm
       TP101 461 middle probe = 28 cm
               farthest probe = 32 cm

* at around 11:30 MST, moved the plugs for the LI-CORs from the
"battery backup" to "surge protected" on the tripp light
battery-backup outlet/UPS (piece of junk)....unfortunately, this UPS
died on Tue (11/24) right around the time i was leaving town...so it
was down for the 5 days that I was gone...

* re-arranged the pressure inlets in the UCB logger (previously, they
were both inside the campbell logger box)...now "P.mpx" is placed just
outside the entrance to the logger box...and "Pbaro.ucb" is attached
to a tree branch about 1.5m off the ground...

* downloaded logger data (no major time problems):

---------------------------------
At the site: SpB, NT, DA

Purpose of visit: change battery in russter2, add P sensor.

Weather: It was a mix of gusty and calm.  Very warm for November, but
the road was not passable and lots of snow still on the ground.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove the CU grey jeep.


---------

               farthest probe = 28 cm

* replaced the internal battery in russter2...ie:

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ws360/en/ug/battery.htm#1106873

* fixed (i hope) the loose wire in the met logger (see photo).

* downloaded logger data, updated times on all loggers...nctc had
drifted by approx 2 minutes...others were ok. (still need to dump data
at MRS!):

At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: swap dessicant, get logger data, clear snow off
tower.

Weather: It was fairly warm (above freezing) and sunny.  Snow was
about 3/4-calf deep...the snowcat had been used to the snow on the
road was fairly well-packed.

--------- Misc Notes:

* from 13:12 - 13:28 MST, swapped out the dessicant on the profiler (li-6251).
    - at 13:12 MST, did zero, co2 approx -0.008 mV
    - at 13:27 MST,  did zero + blow test (ok).
                (zero is approx -0.005 mV).
    - at 13:28 MST,  back to auto mode.  flow rate at ~14.

of the "tree mount" and back to the mini-tower (now that TRAM is
gone).  [NOTE: checked data on 10/19 and they look
reasonable...Rnet_2m did seem to change a bit, probably due to better
leveling of the sensor?]

Sunday, September 27th, 2009 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: setup eol csat-3, move eol T/RH sensor.

Weather: Windy in the early morning (before I arrived).  Very nice day
up there...calm and warm.  The aspen leaves near como creek are pretty
much done for the year.  Lots of yellow along the peak-to-peak...

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove the CU grey jeep.

*

---------

* setup the eol csat3 (sn 0674)---didn't have a long enough bolt to
attach to the long eol boom!  luckily, there was an extra (longer)
bolt in the trailer....

* at 11:00 MST, started ops52/ops53; collecting eol csat3,
  accelerometer data no longer saved (after a few adjustments).

* started running "fast_10.csi" in fast cr23x logger

* moved EOL T/RH sensor from 2.0m up to 4.6m

* downloaded logger data (only the soil logger):

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009 Visit:
------------------------------------
At the site: SpB, CG, NT, LY

Purpose of visit: setup eol csat-3, also turn off fans!

Weather: First sig snow of the season on Monday...still cold and snowy
today.  The yellow aspens and white snow make for nice scenery...the
wind kicked up in the afternoon a bit (but still not too bad).

--------- Misc Notes:

* Chris Gray, et al. moved the ptrms on Monday.

* Nicole and Lindsay showed up to do some "winter'izing".  Also, I
think they re-setup Noahs cr10x...

* the wireless network from the outside world to MRS started on Monday
  (9/21).  This made the connection to/from russter2 slower and with
  lost packets...

---------

* turned off the fans in the LI-COR and quacker boxes (should have
done this earlier!)...

* hot-swapped the battery in the UPS that is in the trailer.

* csat3 wiring at the logger:

   C1 = green           G= black + shield (clear)
   C2 = white
   C3 = brown

* when i was changing the eol csat3 (sn 0674) SDM setting from 3 to 4 i noticed
  that the SDM cable was not connected...emails about this:

Chris,

thanks.  i was able to pop out the pins...but when trying to stuff the
pin for the black wire in with the other two black wires, the pin
broke.  so i cut the pin off the black wire...the other ones i
connected to the green connector with the pins attached (though this
might smush the pins)....here is what the wires were like for the
black connector (looking from the back, ie along the wires):

  empty  empty   black  white  empty
  empty  empty   brown  green  empty

i reconnected serial output (even though i don't need this)....

still snowing lightly...i'll go see if i can get this bastard sonic up
and running on the tower...

Sean,

Oops. That is a sonic that has been set-up for our serializer. Those
wires will be connected in the green connector with the black and red
wires are connected (just behind the RS232 bulkhead). Looking at the
box with the bulkheads to the top the wires will be connected from
left to right on the green, screwlok connector.

Red, Blk, Grn, Wht, Brn.

Don't forget to plug in the DE9 connector also.

Chris

hi,

here's photo of what i'm talking about:

http://urquell.colorado.edu/sean/pic00007.jpg

you can see the SDM connector on the right side with green/white/black
wires...where on the board should this be connected?

thanks!

Hi Chris/Tom/Steve,

quick question---when i opened the white control box to change the SDM
address from 3 to 4 i noticed that the wires for the SDM output are
not connected to anything...the serial output is connected...do you
happen to know where the SDM connection is on the board inside the
white box?  i'll keep on looking, but it's not obvious to me...

if it wasn't snowing i would just open one that we have to figure this
out (and maybe i'll still do this)....if this is unclear or you have
some idea about this please let me know...most importantly, i assume
that it is still possible to use the SDM output, right?  (i know you
have done some custom'izing of the csat3's)....

thanks,

                                        SpB.

Purpose of visit: meet John Knowles for LI-7500 work...

Weather: Fairly calm most of the day.  But rather cool and primarily
overcast.  A few sun breaks.  Seemed like it might rain, but never
did.  In the late afternoon it turned quite nice with a few puffy
clouds floating around...

--------- Misc Notes:

* aspens are at peak yellow.

*

---------

* transported 4 new N2 cylinders from CU up to the trailer (cc17742,
  cc198609, cc264923, cc19975)

* lots of stuff to transcribe from my notes about the LI-7500 work...seemed
to have problems with the dewpoint generator??....maybe the flow/pump is
not strong enough?...

* downloaded logger data:

Purpose of visit: add back the Krypton Hygrometer...

Weather: very nice for working on the tower (calm, etc).

--------- Misc Notes:

* aspens are starting to turn yellow.

*

---------

* replaced gelman filters for two tower inlets

* reconfigured the mounting for the star-dot camera (need to add guy wires?)

* at around 10 MST, remounted our our newly calibrated krypton (sn
1249).  it has the following new calibration values (updated in
lat.heat1.q and sens.heat.q):

 # Borrowed a krypton hygrometer from ATD (sn 1101) from Jun 15-Jul 28 2004 :

        if(rhov*1000 <= 9.00 )  kw <- 0.168
        else                    kw <- 0.168
                        }

 # Recalibrated Sept 2009 :
 if(t1 >= utime("09 aug 28 110000") & t1 < utime("15 jan 1 000000"))     {
        plength <- 1.201                     # pathlength in cm
        if(rhov*1000 <= 9.20 )  kw <- 0.156  # note: these are the "windows scaled" values
        else                    kw <- 0.147
                        }
                        ## units : g m^-3

Monday, September 7th, 2009 Visit:
----------------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: swap out N2 cylinder, change dessicant.

Weather: A bit cool and blustery.  The aspens around como creek
are starting to turn yellow now.  It feels like summer is over.

--------- Misc Notes:

* picked up the jeep key from Lynette in the morning (she had
taken it home with her).

* ordered 5 more N2 cylinders from airgas to drive up to C1 before the
snow moves in.

---------

* from around 10:50-10:40 MST, swapped N2 at the tower.  (did leak
  check during that time).  (new cylinder=CC264924 (2000 psi); old
  cylinder=CC199722 (approx 100 psi)).  left CC199722 at the base of
  the tower.

* from 10:32 - 10:53 MST, swapped out the dessicant on the profiler (li-6251).
    - at 10:30 MST, did zero (N2 not connected!).
    - at 10:48 MST, re-open N2.
    - at 10:50,  did zero + blow test (ok).
                (zero is approx -0.001 mV).
    - at 10:52:45,  back to auto mode.  flow rate at ~14.

* from 10:55-10:58 MST, adjusted flow rate in LI-6262.

* messed around the T/RH.eol, but wound up needing better mounting
parts to set it up properly...

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009 Visit:
-----------------------------------
At the site: SpB, DA, DB, AT, T

Purpose of visit: swap out the LI-6262, download logger data.

Weather: Warm and sunny.  A few bursts of wind from time-to-time.
Very hazy due to the smoke from the fires to the west of us (ie, in
california!).

--------- Misc Notes:

* Andrew Turnipseed and Tiffany (NCAR/ACD) were installing a REA
system at the top of the tower.

* Dave Bowling was working on his data logger, etc.

---------

* the gelman filter at the lowest inlet had come loose; tried to use
tape this to make it more secure.  still need to swap gelman filters
for the two inlets on the tower.

* downloaded logger data and reset the clocks on the all the loggers
(all within about 15 sec of russter2 time):

* removed loaner LI-6262 (sn IRG3-224); re-installed our re-calibrated
  LI-6262 (sn IRG3-0638).

  - at 9:30 MST, bumped up the LI-6262 h2o signal, dial, span=5.0, offset=5.80
    (this must be the "offset" that i changed)...

  - between 10:00-10:35 MST, changed the LI-6262s.
      at 10:32 MST, ran N2 into the LI-6262...
      at 10:33 MST, ran span into LI-6262....
      at 10:33:30, back to sample...

  - also made some adjustments to the needle valve at this
    time...note, p.cell on the LI-6262 front panel is no longer
    working correctly (but the mV output is ok)...

--------- Misc Notes:

*

*

---------

* replaced batteries

at cnr logger:  YUASA NP7-6 6V, 7.0Ah  (this battery might still be workable?..they are at least 6 years old).
at met logger:  YUASA NP7-6 6V, 7.0Ah  (old one which was bad).

* at 9:44 MST, started ops51; analog outputs from 2.5m LI-7500 no longer saved.

* uc23x logger starts using uc_03.csi (note: this change causes data
  output rate from 5 Hz to 10 Hz, no 5-min data saved at the logger)

* changed the internal (digital) filter on both LI-7500s from 5-hz to
  20-hz (ie, no filter)

    - at 10:24 MST, did this on the 2.5m LI-7500
    - at 12:40 MST, changed this on the 12.5m LI-7500...

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009 Visit:
--------------------------------
At the site: SpB, A

Purpose of visit: add T/RH sensor from EOL, change to SDM output
for 2.5m LI-7500.

Weather: Overcast, foggy and cold.  Upslope wind.  It was drippy/wet
all day.  Toward the end of the afternoon it started to really rain.

--------- Misc Notes:

* mt lion seen recently at cable gate (according to Kurt C.).

*

---------

* Added a T/RH sensor from EOL (currently setup at 188 cm) to prof
  logger (start using prf_02.csi).   Borrowed from Steve Semmer.

* Here is the wiring for this sensor:

    Red/black = Power (+12 VDC) and ground.
    White/Black = Temperature,  Ta_eol= 100.*Ta_eol_mV./1000-40
    Green/Black = RH,           RH_eol= RH_eol_mV./10

* at 10:44 MST, disconnected o3.slow, added EOL T/RH.

* Added SDM output from the LI-7500 at 2.5m, uc23x logger starts using
  uc_02.csi (note: this change causes data output rate to be at 5 Hz,
  not 10 Hz)

* some more info about LI-7500:

  LI-7500 at 12.5m:   SDM cable....wiring:

   (note this wire goes through a junction box);
      C1 = red wire
      C2 = black wire
      C3= green wire
      GND= white + shield

* talked to sasha at campbell....here is what the wiring should be:

      C1 = gray wire
      C2 = blue wire
      C3= brown wire
      Gnd = other wires....

note, it needs a lot of power on startup....so should use +12V from
some external source (ie, not the cr23x!)....

     warmup = 30 Watts = 2.5 amps....
     running = 10 Watts = 0.8 amps....

Purpose of visit: get ready for the StarDot webcam.  mess
with LI-7500 at 2.5m.

Weather: Starting to warm up.  No rain very dry.

--------- Misc Notes:

* the flux class at MRS is going on...


---------

* at approx 11:00 MST, leveled PAR-Lite sensor (it was previously at a
slight (5 deg?) angle to horizontal).

* from 12:06 - 12:29 MST, swapped out the dessicant on the profiler (li-6251).
    - at 12:06 MST, did zero (value is approx 0.005 mV).
    - at 12:15,  did zero + blow test (ok).
                (zero is approx -0.005 mV, span at 1.395).
    - at 12:20,  back to auto mode.  flow rate at ~13.

* unplugged the rain gauge heater....

* check the setting on the LI-7500:

delay time= 0, DAC = 240 ms, Bandwidth= 5 Hz, SDM= 7 (..note the 12.5m
LI7500 outputs digital data, while the 2.5m LI7500 used analog
output...)

* added a 5-port "netgear" switch at the 10-m power box to prepare for
  the new webcam

* logger data (no time problems):

From:    Erinn Looney-Triggs 
Subject: Re: message on russter2...

Near as I can tell a user trahan logged in and then attempted to suspend the system.
Looks like she did that multiple times actually. This is probably the root cause of
this suspending and resuming the system can lead to a lot of funky errors and this
probably broke the serial connection.

Anyway, we should probably reboot the system if someone is up there to watch it and
that 'should' fix the issue.

Hi UnixOPS,

a message just appeared on my xterm window from russter2:

 Broadcast message from root (Mon Jul 20 12:31:45 2009):
 Warning communications lost with UPS UPS_IDEN

seems like it's related to the UPS software....any idea if this is
something to worry about?  i think the UPS is connected by a serial
cable to russter2....

thanks,

                                        SpB.

from Monday).

Weather: Starting to warm up.  No rain very dry.

--------- Misc Notes:

* Utah was removing the west robot--on the first run one of the
tires blew out on the red cart.

* took an inventory of harnesses:  3 complete "belt" harnesses, one
partial (only the belt part), and two climbing harnesses.

---------

* Installed the OSU AmeriFlux KZ PAR-Lite sensor at the top of the
tower (note it is at an angle to the sun, same as it was left last
year).  Just like last year, it's, "PAR2.up".  Brought the box back to
campus.

* 2.5m LI-7500, AGC=66%
  - at 11:42 MST, cleaned window with windex...
  - at 12:44 MST, connected calibration tube + temp sensor
  - at 12:50 MST, ran zero air into the sampling cell (w/ sleeve on it).
        co2 is approx -9.36 umol/mol
        h2o is approx -0.27 mmmol/mol

  - at 13:03:40 MST, slight increase in the zero air flow rate/pressure...

  for co2:  last zero is 22 Dec 2004  current value = 1.0017, new= 0.9995
  at 13:08:50 MST, realized the valve on co2 cylinder was closed!

  for h2o:  new value 0.7164 (?)

  - at 13:39 MST, done with span of co2.

  - dewpoint generator set to 15 degC...flow at 10x100 cc/min.

  - at 13:45 MST, flow 15 degC (dewpoint) air into the cell...previous
  span 0.995/22 Dec04...new span  0.9777....

  - at 13:51:15, down to Tdew=10 degC.

  - at 13:55 MST, up to Tdew= 20 degC.

Purpose of visit: check out the cal of the LI-7500.

Weather: Cool and dry.  high clouds in the morning that

--------- Misc Notes:

* Went by NCAR to grab the LI-610 borrowed from NEON.

* Russ was at the site with Anders Lindroth from Sweden.

* pumped up the tires on the red cart...

---------

* span pressure = 1710 psi; N2 pressure 1760 psi.

* spent most of the day messing around with the network to the TRAM
adam...here is a brief summary:

Subject: Re: ADAMs


Hi,

i have some other things to take care of...here's a quick summary of
what i did:

1. arrived, network was not working.  port4 where the fiber optic
cable connects to the fiber-to-copper converter in the quacker box was
not lighting up.  I moved the fiber pair to port3 and then the lights
came on.  And i was able to get on the internet at the tram location.

2. i've rebooted the adam by turning the power switch on the outside
of the box on/off a few times now.  still can't ping isffa from
russter2.  lights are on in the viper so i know there is power
there...also the usb drive is lit up.  the network cable that goes to
the adam (ie, connected to the hub in the red tub) has two
lights---the green "lnk/act" light is rapidly flashing on/off...the
"100M" light is solid orange.  this cable connects to "eth1" on the
side of the adam...i would try a different network cable, but it needs
a special connector (though i do see some normal rj-45 connectors
inside the adam box)...

i'll check my email again before i leave, but i have some other
work to do...

thanks,

                                SpB.

Hi Betsy,

I was finally able to check the serial numbers of the short-haul
modems that are out in the field...one is a ME721A rather than a
ME800A, they are:

 Model      Serial Number    Logger
------      -------------   --------
ME800A-R2   sn 0202          UCB (logger end)
ME721A-M    717N0056         UC (logger end)

ME800A-R3   sn 0605          UCB (tower end)
ME800A-R3   sn 0405          UC (tower end)

If we can't add the ME721A to the "double diamond" protection plan,
then just do the three ME800A's....

If you need other information or have any other question let me
know...and please let me know what type of document i get that shows
the protection plan, etc...my understanding is that it is $17/unit for
three years of protection, correct?

thanks,

                                        SpB.

Sunday, June 7th, 2009 Visit:
-----------------------------
At the site: SpB

Purpose of visit: fix fast cr23x data logger

Weather: It started snowing (ice pellets) when i arrived.  There were
some very big clouds around (mostly to the east).  It was a bit windy
at times, but also sunny and nice other times.  There was only one
distant rumble of thunder...as i left the clouds completely cleared
off.  And it was clear skies and sunny...

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU gray Jeep.

* still a few piles of snow "holding on".  Added a bit of salt to the
ground rod (plenty of water in there)...

* the Aspens are really leafing out...almost fully out.

---------

* span pressure = ? psi; N2 pressure ? psi.

* on sunday morning (7 June) i noticed the file sizes changed
  dramatically on the 6th, ie:

-r--r--r-- 1 root  aster 39049534 Jun  6 10:00 nwt090606.080000
-r--r--r-- 1 root  aster 39049502 Jun  6 18:00 nwt090606.160000

-r--r--r-- 1 root  aster 34115462 Jun  7 18:00 nwt090607.160000

* it looks like at around 17:20 MST the fast logger (chan 201) stopped
spitting out data...ie:

data_stats < /data/projects/NIWOT/raw_data/all/nwt090607.000000
Opened:

* after connecting to the "fast" cr23x logger the time seemed fine,
but when i tried to look at the data the numbers were not changing...i
tried re-sending the program (fast_07.csi), but this did not fix the
problem.  All the values then went to zero.  This indicated a problem
with the logger (and not somewhere downstream of the logger).  My
suspicion was that it was related to the internal batteries...which I
happened to have two spares of....swapped out the batteries and then
it worked ok.  The logger was fixed at aruond 11:27 MST, ie:

data_stats < /data/projects/NIWOT/raw_data/all/nwt090607.160000

626: site visit, Site CU 26m Tower, Wed 04-Nov-2009 10:07:50 MST, site visit on Thursday, June 4th, 2009 (SpB, LL, SL, LY)
Thursday, June 4th, 2009 Visit:
-------------------------------
At the site: SpB, LL, SL, LY

Purpose of visit: change LI-6262 Nupro filters/work on PAR.

Weather: Mostly clear up in the mountains.  Not too windy.  Could see
a heavy cloud layer down on the plains from the tower.  Clouded up a
bit in the afternoon.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU gray Jeep.

* still piles of snow "holding on".  But things are really starting to
open up now.

* the Aspens are leafing out...my camera ran out of battery juice, so
no photos of them!

---------

* span pressure = 300 psi; N2 pressure 900 psi.

* turned on fans in both the LI-6251 and LI-6262 boxes.

* at 11:00 MST, disconnected LI-6262 from side of box.

  - between 11:00-11:26 MST, replaced 2-micron filters both
    at the inlet and inside the LI-6262 box.

* rest of the day was spent helping with the installation of PAR.

Monday, June 1st, 2009 Visit:
-----------------------------
At the site: SpB, NT, SL, L, L

Purpose of visit: replace batteries.

Weather:  Drizzly rain when we arrived.  This turned into a steady
rain by the time we left.

--------- Misc Notes:

* drove up CU gray Jeep.

* Chris gray and his helper (Alyssa) were up there looking for a spot
to setup the PTR-MS and they also grabbed a few sampling chambers...

* there is still snow left, but you can get to the tower without walking
in it.  lots of water on the trail (it's been raining a lot).

* the Aspens are just starting to leaf out...

---------

* span pressure = 400 psi; N2 pressure 1080 psi.

* on Sunday night I noticed the tower data had stopped being
archived...when trying to reboot the quacker the edgeport was not
getting recognized...here's my email:

 Hi,

 fyi---it looks like the tower data system shut down this afternoon
 about 2:30pm.  And now the Edgeport is not getting recognized on
 reboot..i'm getting a message like:

 May 31 22:21:28 quacker kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:07.2-1, assigned address 2

 and this is supposed to look like:

 based on the timing, i'm guessing the problem is probably due to
 lightning....I just added my name to the jeep calendar to go up
 tomorrow.  It says there were 4 people going up in the jeep tomorrow
 so I assume one more person is ok (if not please let me know ASAP).
 It also says that you are leaving from campus at 9am...so i'll plan to
 be on campus before 9am.

 Gordon, i still have your edgeport and i'll bring that with me for a
 swap out if that is needed...

 thanks,
