Measurements were carried out by using a surface laser scintillometer (SLS) (Scintec SLS40, Scintec AG, Rottenburg). The SLS was installed two meters aboveground and with a propagation path length of 89 meters in relatively flat terrain covered the pasture grass Setaria sphacelata (average plant height of 0.53 meters). An automatic weather station was installed at the SLS receiver to measure net radiation, soil heat flux, air temperature, and relative humidity.
