Abstract:
Measurements of wind speed and direction were captured using a three-dimensional sonic anemometer (Windmaster Pro, Gill Instruments Limited, Hampshire, UK). Measurements were taken at Cataract Scout Park, Appin, N.S.W. (34°14'42.29"S 150°49'24.97"E) from a mast 10 m above ground level as part of the Characterizing Organics and Aerosol Loading over Australia (COALA-2020) campaign. Data processing was handled by the EddyPro® 7 software (LI-COR Biosciences, Lincoln, NE, USA). Measurements were taken at 1-minute time resolution and averaged to thirty-minute means, as reported here. Mean wind speed and direction are the only parameters reported here as the authors are concerned the adjacent tree canopy has significantly impacted the flux measurements. For further details please contact the authors. Wind speed and direction measurements were also taken at an adjacent air quality monitoring station installed for the campaign. These data are also available in this depository, listed under "Air quality pollutants measurements at Cataract Scout Park, Australia, taken during the COALA-2020 campaign."
