A new Mesonet.org is coming soon!

Anemometer Anti-Icing Dataset

This dataset contains measurements from a standard R.M. Young Wind Monitor and two anemometers with anti-ice technologies through icing conditions: an R. M. Young Wind Monitor coated in NeverWet™, a superhydrophobic coating, and an R. M. Young Alpine Wind Monitor. There were three icing events with at least four hours of precipitation (22 Nov. 2013 – 24 Nov. 2013, 20 Dec. 2013 – 24 Dec. 2013, 27 Nov. 2015 – 28 Nov. 2015) and three icing events with precipitation less than 10 mm (4 Feb. 2014 – 5 Feb. 2014, 2 Mar. 2014 – 3 Mar. 2014, 28 Feb. 2015 – 1 Mar. 2015).
