#' @author Robert Lee \email{[email protected]@colorado.edu}\cr

#' @description This function calculates the mean delta values for
#' nitrogen-15 and carbon-13 isotopes over the period of record at a site.

#' @param site Parameter of class character.
#' The NEON site data should be downloaded for.

#' @return A list of min, mean and max net solar radiation
#' values at the site, in watts per meter squared
