This work was supported by the U.S. Department of Energy under contract DE-AC06-76RLO 1830. The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is operated for the U.S. Department of Energy by the Battelle Memorial Institute. The authors appreciate the efforts of staff members at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, who provided us with a sonic anemometer and helped install this instrument prior to the sonic/cup comparison field campaign.
