SYNOPSIS ^

This is a script file.

DESCRIPTION ^

 SFA89 Wind measurements at Statfjord A 24.12.1989
    
   CALL:  xn = load('sfa89.dat');
   
  Size             :    144 X 3
  Sampling Rate    :     1/600 Hz
  Device           :    
  Source           :    DNMI (The Norwegian Meteorological Institute)
  Format           :    ascii, c1: time     (hours) 
                               c2: velocity (m/s) 
                               c3: direction (degrees) 
  Description      :
    The registration of wind speeds at the Gullfaks field 
    started up on Statfjord A in 1978 and continued until 1990.  
    The dataregistration was transferred to Gullfaks C in Nov 1989. 
    Due to some difficulties of the windregistration on Gullfaks C in 
    the beginning, they continued to use the registered data from 
    Statfjord A. 
    The windspeed is measured in  (meter/second), 110 m above mean water 
    level (MWL) and the wind direction is given in degrees for the data.
    The data are a mean value of every 10 minutes.
    Wind directions are defined in the meteorological convention, i.e., 
    0 degrees = wind approaching from North, 90 degrees = wind from East, etc. 
 
     This dataset is for non-commercial use only.
