Massachusetts Clean Energy Center MetOcean Data Initiative
MetadataShow full item record
This data was collected by Kirincich as part of a metocean monitoring campaign designed around the observation of key atmospheric and ocean parameters at an existing offshore platform in the proximity of the Massachusetts and Rhode Island Wind Energy Areas. The campaign supported the purchase and installation of a LIDAR wind profiler, two cup anemometers and a wind direction vane at the MVCO Air-Sea Interaction Tower (ASIT). These instruments, chosen in consultation with AWS Truepower to adhere to Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC)’s MetOcean Measurement Plan, were installed over the course of four day cruises to the MVCO tower between October and December 2016 and maintained to present.
