Snow Drift Station - 3D Ultrasonic

A Young 81000 sonic anemomenter was deployed at Gotschnagrat (LON: 46.859 LAT: 9.849) to record three components of the wind velocity (u, v, w in [m s‾ ¹]) and air temperature (Ts in [°C]). The anemomenter was mounted in direction North at a height of 1.5 m above snow surface at the beginning. The time within each data set is given in UTC+1. Instrument specifications can be found here .
