Jim:  Thanks for your help with the PAR data.  Is there anything we can do 
to help get it together?  I have a question about the units of measurement 
of the PAR (surface) data that are included in the in your page C-man data 
sets:  the values seem low if they are uEin /m2/sec (full sunlight is >2000 
with a flat cosine collector).  Do you know what kind of sensor they are 
(spherical or cosine; sperical values are usually even higher than cosine) 
and whether the units are in quanta, Watts etc?  Again, thanks,
