  1. The sensors used in the eddy-covariance flux application, including the KH20, are not supported by SCWin.

  2. The seal around the source/detector tubes is not user serviceable. If the seal has failed, return the KH20 to the factory for repair. Follow the steps listed on our Repair and Calibration page to request a returned material authorization (RMA) number. 

  3. For a description, refer to the “Basic Measurement Theory” section in Appendix A of the KH20 Krypton Hygrometer Instruction Manual.

  4. An open-path eddy-covariance program is available for purchase as pn 18442CRBasic Basic Eddy Covariance Program. This is the program without energy balance sensors. Also available is pn 18443, CRBasic Extended Eddy Covariance Program, with energy balance sensors. To order a custom configured program, contact the Micrometeorology Flux group for assistance.
