ClimateBasis Zackenberg - Wind - Wind direction @ 750cm - 10min average (°)

Wind direction, 750cm - 10min average (°) Wind:Wind ClimateBasis Zackenberg:The ClimateBasis programme monitors climate and hydrology in Zackenberg, Kobbefjord and Disko (Qeqertarsuaq) and is run by Asiaq - Greenland Survey. The collected data build base-line information on climate variability and trends for all the other sub-programmes within GEM and serve as a trustworthy foundation for adaptation strategies for the Greenlandic society. The stations are embedded in Asiaq’s extensive climate and hydrology monitoring network. Furthermore, the run-off data is delivered to the World Hydrological Cycle Observing System (WHYCOS) and the Global Runoff Data Centre (GRDC) networks.

  • Variable name: Wind direction, 750cm - 10min average (°)  Variable description: Wind direction measured on two proximal climate stations at 750 cm above ground as a 10min average (°). The double masted climate station is located north of the station at 44 m a.s.l.. The timeseries starts in 1995. Quality control is performed on both datasets from the double mast system. The combined time series is calculated as the interior bisector of the two measured wind directions. When only one station produces valid data these wind direction records are copied directly to the final time series. Wind directions are set to missing, when the corresponding wind speed is missing or below 0.05 m/s. Data comments:  Variable unit: °  Variable URL:
