  • Dataset Abstract
    A weather tower was constructed in Taylor River at TS-PH7b to collect meteorological data necessary for the estimation of Evapotranspiration estimates within the dwarf mangrove ecotone of FCE. This data set also includes surface water and soil temperature data that was used to investigate groundwater-surface water interactions at the site.
