Abstract:

Tests of atmospheric parameter measurements using the EII Series 200 Dual Component Wind Set with integral pressure and temperature sensors were made during the period of May 1977 through March 1978. These tests included laboratory comparison, wind tunnel, and field operation tests. Data collected with the sensor were compared to calibrated standards. Presented in this report are all tabulated and graphic representation as well as field operation results. The results of the test show the systems relative comparison with the calibrated standards of temperature and pressure. Wind measurements became more comparable with increasing windspeeds. A method of utilizing the entire windspeed capability range of the sensor is proposed. Author
