According to the website, "the anemometers are mounted 90 degrees relative to each other." However, some anemometers seems 180 degrees to each other based on the data. Could you please check if all the paired anemometer booms have a 90 degree angle to each other?

Dear Sir,

Two things: First, the data sets are from real operators/consultants. While the generally accepted practice is to mount the booms 90 degrees from each other - it is, essentially, at the preference of that operator/consultant. That said, I checked the provenance of the data files, and one operator did mount the booms 180 degrees out. Good eye. At some point, I will go back as ask why.

Most Sincerely,
