Wind profiles of the Wright Valley using an acoustic wind profiler measuring wind speed and direction and dry bulb temperature
Entry ID: K016_1990_1991_NZ_1

Abstract: A new acoustic wind profiler was tested in the Wright Valley on the slopes of Mount Odin. This instrument may have the advantage of providing continuous vertical profiles of wind speed and direction and being portable should be useable at a number of sites.
