Wind speed measurements are an integral component of the eddy covariance method. Research goals may require a specific geometry, a heating option, better operation in wet conditions, or may be constrained by budgets. LI-COR eddy covariance products are strategically designed to give you the flexibility to integrate with a variety of sonic anemometers to fit your exact research requirements, including the latest digital, heated, and multipath options.
The following sonic anemometers from Gill Instruments, Metek, and RM Young are available directly from LI-COR . Data and power cables are available in several lengths for tripod or tower configuration. LI-COR also provides mounting hardware for these anemometers.
Additional options include wind tunnel calibration and/or a heavy-duty carrying case.
With configurable, efficient heating function, this multi-path ultrasonic anemometer performs three independent measurements of the 3D air flow quasi-simultaneously using only one sole sonic anemometer by arranging each sonic transmitter to three opposite sonic receivers. It is constructed of stainless steel with optimized design of sensor head and sonic transducers for minimal flow distortion. This model is optimized for omnidirectional measurements where there is no majority prevalent wind direction.
LI-COR eddy covariance systems also give you the flexibility to integrate the digital signals and diagnostics from the following sonic anemometers:
Data and power cables are available from LI-COR.
LI-COR eddy covariance systems also provide support for additional anemometers that are set to output analog signals. Analog anemometers require a gas analyzer that includes the LI-7550 Analyzer Interface Unit.
