abstract Since 1997, the hourly wind direction data have been collected from the weather tower near the SERC lab buildings. Before 1997, the hourly wind direction data were collected from the main weather station near the Schmidt center. The data are recorded by a Campbell CR10x automated data logger. The data in the daily table were calculated from the hourly table. The average wind direction for the day is the average of 24 hourly averages. The data are in an Access database in the tables "HourlyWDirect" and "DailyWDirect".
