Deployment Notes: The table below contains summary statistics of wind speeds measured by Texas Tech University during Hurricane Ike. All probes collect wind data at 2.25 m AGL and data is not standardized for height or exposure. Updates to this table maybe added as further analysis is conducted. Please see our data disclaimer .

RADAR ANIMATION AND STATION PLOTS


Animation is of the fine-scale array in Chambers, Liberty, and Jefferson Counties. Additional probes are not displayed on the animation.

The wind direction for the probe located at Chambers Co. Airport (Anahuac, TX) is subject to small bias errors due to the alignment of the electronic compass mount and instrument deadband. The data included in the animation has not been corrected for this bias.
