Dataset Overview

Wind data from the 38-meter level Met1 sensors on the Colchester Reef meteorological station. Readings from this instrument became unreliable after September of 2008. This was verified by reviewing maintenance notes and by comparing the reading between the met1 sensor and an NRG anemometer that was set up on the station at the same height. Late 2008 was when the readings between the two sensors began to differ.
