Vertical Profiles of Wind Speed and Direction above the ASIT
As part of WHOI's long-term Metocean monitoring campaign, MVCO observes the vertical structure of wind speed and direction above the ASIT using a Leosphere Windcube V2.0 vertically profiling lidar system. Installed at the ASIT since 2016, the system measures the wind above the tower remotely using a low power laser, calibrated to offshore wind energy industry standards. Contact MVCO for more information about the program, data access, or use of the facility as a validation location.
The current vertical structure of winds above the ASIT is displayed below, from 53 m to 200 m above mean sea level.
