Title: Radar - ESRL Wind Profiler with RASS, Wasco Airport - Derived Data

Profiles of turbulence dissipation rate for 15-minute intervals, time-stamped at the beginning of the 15-minute period, during the final 30 minutes of each hour. During that time, the 915-MHz wind profiling radar was in an optimized configuration with a vertically pointing beam only for measuring accurate spectral widths of vertical velocity. A bias-corrected dissipation rate also was profiled (described in McCaffrey et al. 2017). Hourly files contain two 15-minute profiles.

  1. A2e is a multi-year, multi-stakeholder DOE research and development initiative tasked with improving wind plant performance and mitigating risk and uncertainty to achieve substantial reduction in the cost of wind energy production. The A2e strategic vision will enable a new generation of wind plant technology, in which smart wind plants are designed to achieve optimized performance stemming from more complete knowledge of the inflow wind resource and complex flow through the wind plant. Focus areas include high fidelity modeling, verification, and validation; aeroacoustics; integrated wind plant control; integrated systems and analysis; reliability; and data archiving.
