MetadataShow full item record
A data acquisition system has been installed at Vandenberg Air Force Base to obtain meteorological data from 12 of the existing 23 towers. Data processing and storage includes means and standard deviations for time periods of 15 sec, 5 min, 15 min, and 1 hr. The 15 sec data contains those quantities needed to form averages, with standard deviations, over any longer time period. All data contains turbulence frequency components to 1 Hz. The purpose of the project is to characterize turbulence in complex terrain for use in diffusion modeling.
