Please use this space to provide suggestions, improvements and additions to EddyPro.January 23, 2012 at 10:59 pm #1554
Is there any interest in having an EddyPro version for Mac or Linux users? Are others processing EC data on other platforms? Cast a vote for neither, Mac, or Linux.February 7, 2012 at 8:16 pm #1556
Could you please add an ATI (Applied Technologies) Sonic (especially K probe)as a sonic anemometer option?
ThanksFebruary 9, 2012 at 7:06 am #1560
Bob, thanks for request. We’re are retrieving the necessary information to process data from the ATI probes appropriately.
In the meanwhile, you could help us by specifying (if you know this information):
1) Is there an option to apply/not apply the cross-wind correction to sonic temperature calculated by those anemometers?
2) Is there any flow distortion correction applied in the firmware?
Thanks!February 9, 2012 at 4:56 pm #1562
There is a shadow correction that can be toggled on/off. It corrects the flow distortion caused by the wind blowing directly along the axis of one transducer.
There are also flow distortion corrections in the factory menu.
Thanks a lot for the information!
I will let you guys know how this proceeds and if we manage to include ATI anemometers already in our next release.

In the coming years I see a Mac platform in my office, but not tomorrow.February 14, 2012 at 4:07 pm #1564
I would like to see an option for a graphical display during processing. This feature is available in EdiRe. It would be nice to have an option to output a list of up to “six” selected variables. These variables would be graphically charted in separate windows. Perhaps a selection of variables from the full output vs time / record # or vs other variables.
Cheers!!February 20, 2012 at 3:43 pm #1565
thanks for the requests, hydrobot
we hope to implement these requests as time and resources become available. Feature requests that improve the quality of flux computations are given the highest priority, followed by those that improve ease-of-use. Others will be implemented based on the overall interest expressed by EddyPro users, such as yourself. Please continue to provide feedback on EddyPro and share your experiences with other members of the Eddy Covariance community!February 21, 2012 at 7:19 am #1566
I am definitely interested in a Mac or Linux version of EddyPro (in that order), or even better, a platform independent application.
I hope you can allocate resources to that soon. ThanksMay 17, 2012 at 6:07 am #1604
I’ve been asked by a colleague to ask about including the CSAT diagnostic. The reason he gave me was that they had an intermittent fault with a CSAT at one of their sites. The covariances calculated online by the logger were contaminated and not usable but they were able to go back to the 10 Hz data, screen it using the CSAT diagnostic value and re-calculate the covariances. This saved a few months of data.

I report here the explanation I gave you by email, for the convenience of other readers.
The CSAT diagnostic flag – as well as any other variable – can already be used as a mask to filter out data records flagged for poor quality.
In the “Dataset Selection” page, in the “Flags” tab, you can choose any variable available in the raw files as a flag, set a threshold value for each variable and instruct EddyPro to discard raw records for which individual values are beyond or below the defined threshold. This is a generalized concept of mask, which can be used straightforwardly with the CSAT flag, but that you may also use with other variables.

Thanks for the note about the Fortran 16801 error and how to avoid it by not doing the absolute limits test. Sometimes when sonics get wet or frosted they will stick on out of range values. I get a similar run termination if the data file is bad (maybe sonic out of range) when requesting uncertainty calculations. Unchecking the limits box does not work in this case (with uncertainty checked). A nice option would be a box we could check that allows the program to recover from any error (while logging the error) and continue to the next datafile. With 30-minute data files it can be very slow to discover and edit out bad files.
Also, I also vote for the ATI sonic. Thanks for great software.

Dear Dave, thanks for your post.
Our goal is to make EddyPro able to handle any exception and skip to the next file in case of any trouble, without having you manually instruct the software to do so. Clearly, we are still not there (as you can imagine, it’s difficult to envisage and test all possible scenarios). In particular, you should be able to select any option, such as Absolute limits filters or Uncertainty calculations, without incurring in a crash.
I would be interested in analyzing your case in more details. Would you able to send me (by email: email@example.com) the “.eddypro”, the “.metadata” and a few raw files that I can use to replicate both crashes? It shouldn’t be too complicated to spot the problem and fix it. Then, should I find solutions of general interest, I will post them here.
As for the ATI sonics. What we need to know to include these anemometers is whether there is any specific algorithm that needs implemented to correct/calibrate wind and temperature data. Also, we would need to know the possible wind data formats (UVW? polar?) and if there is any other peculiarity. Finally, the geometrical specifications (path lengths) and time response are needed, for each ATI model.
Note that we did not add ATI instruments so far for the simple reason that we didn’t have the opportunity to work with one. Given the interest that is arising (especially lately, with the new papers that came out on anemometer performances), we would be pleased if the community would support us adding these SATs to the list.
Thanks a lot,

Hi Gerardo –
Sorry I didn’t see your post. Attached is the ATI manual. Most people who use the ATI sonic use the K probe. It would be great if you can include this in the next version.

I would be interested in an ability to run eddypro in batch mode on linux. I don’t mind using the GUI to configure in windows. I’d be happy to volunteer to help with the port (Deb Agarwal).
