Observations from Big Southern Butte and Salmon River Canyon
There are many high-resolution wind models available, but there are few observational datasets available to evaluate these models. The pages below briefly summarize two field studies conducted by our group to collect high-resolution wind data that can be used to evaluate such models. See the link on the sidebar to the full paper for more details.
