Title Flight paths for CFD modelling
Downloaded 4 times
Description This workbook contains two worksheets that detail (i) wind data (collected from balloon ascents) and (ii) summary data from birds gliding over hotels that border Swansea Bay. These data were used to estimate the wind fields around these flight paths, when combined with CFD model outputs. This file is also described in the README file for the Ornithodolite data.
