Wind Comparison Plots

NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) has a suite of meteorological sensors installed at the Bodega Marine Reserve. NOAA ESRL wind data is compared with BML wind data here.

Note that the BML anemometer is located on a 10 m tower atop the Laboratory at a total height 20 m. The NOAA ESRL anemometer is atop a 10 m ground mounted tower located ~200 m north of the Laboratory. The physical separation between the two sensors may produce small differences in observations.
