WindVisions: first phase final report

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


It is the objective of this project to develop a Wind and Visibility Monitoring System (WindVisions) at Mainport Schiphol. WindVisions will consist of a crosswind scintillometer, which is a horizontal long range wind and visibility sensor, and a SODAR (Sound Detecting And Ranging), a vertical scanning wind sensor. The area of interest to monitor is the landing and take-off course of airplanes ranging from the surface to about 300m height along a runway.
