Gust Probe Winds from the NOAA Environmental Technology Laboratory
Entry ID: OAR0077

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The NOAA/ERL airborne gust probe system is a set of instruments for measuring
turbulence parameters from an aircraft, typically the NOAA WP-3D. The gust
probe system measures the boundary layer turbulent fluxes of temperature,
moisture, and momentum. This data set contains the results of a variety of
gust probe experiments over land and over the oceans.
