Micrometeorological studies have historically relied on observations at towers as a primary source of experimental data on turbulent and mean quantities in the lowest meters of the atmospheric boundary layer.
A large amount of data from numerous flux tower sites, including ET and other micrometeorological variables, have been collected and archived in global flux network in recent years [8, 9], providing a solid foundation for obtaining helpful knowledge of the underlying mechanisms influencing the variation of ET across various time scales from hourly to interannual.
In the Western United States, NSF-funded researchers deployed a unique set of instruments, called the Internet of Trees Micrometeorological System, to monitor how trees respond to repeated droughts at the cellular level and across ecosystems.

Under Brazilian conditions, vegetable production is based and depends on intensive soil preparation, which alters its physical-hydraulic characteristics and exposes it to wide micrometeorological variations along the day and along the production cycle (Roman-Paoli et al., 2012; Echer et al., 2014).
Micrometeorological features appear to register in the ESP when the descent rate is <2.6 m [s.sup.-1] (taken from the descent rate when the thermal feature was measured in Flt08B).
