Description

Calculated sonic buoyancy flux data product BUOYFLS_L2 using the sonic temperature instead of the virtual temperature. The FDCHP instrument calculates the analogous FLUXHOT_L2 data product also as a buoyancy flux using the sonic temperature. In contrast, the (METBK) data product BUOYFLX_L2 uses the virtual temperature in its calculation of buoyancy flux.
