Abstract

10m surface wind speed and direction data are available from instruments mounted on a 10m tower at the Frongoch site, 6km away from the main Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Mesosphere-Stratosphere-Troposphere (MST) Radar Facility's site in Wales. Wind direction is obtained from a Vector Instruments W200P wind vane and wind speeds from a Vector Instruments A100R anemometer.

Data lineage:

Data are acquired by the MST radar facility and sent to the BADC within an hour of acquisition. Data are then immediately ingested into the BADC archives.

Data Quality:
The MST radar data quality is described by D. A. Hooper, J. Nash, T. Oakley, and M. Turp. Validation of a new signal processing scheme for the MST radar at Aberystwyth. Ann. Geophys., 26(11):3253-3268, 2008. (available from here http://www.ann-geophys.net/26/3253/2008/angeo-26-3253-2008.html)
