Abstract:

Five records of near-surface winds obtained by recording anemometers mounted on toroidal floats anchored in deep water are compared with wind values read from U. S. Weather Bureau charts. Very good agreement is found between the two, the wind recorders giving a smoother and more detailed record. Synoptic wind speed records from two adjacent moorings of different design and instrumentation are also compared. Author
