Raz Blanchard ADCP Processed Data
This dataset supports the Energies journal paper "Evaluation of Model Predictions of the Unsteady Tidal Stream Resource and Turbine Fatigue Loads Relative to Multi-Point Flow Measurements at Raz Blanchard" and comprises of six files. Each file corresponds to an ADCP location, NH1, MU and NH2 and a vertical position of a turbine, near surface (hub at 15 m below the surface) or near bed (hub 15 m above the bed). With the hub height above the bed given as Zhub in metres above bed, the disk averaged velocity and disk averaged turbulence intensity is provided for a turbine with a diameter of 18 m. The vertical shear profile is also provided through a series of vertical positions with 3 m spacing. The velocities have been provided as absolute values with the mean measured direction for each sample.
