Summary

The present submission includes some algorithm to correct tilt angle errors from sonic anemometers, including the method by Wilczak et al. [1]. Other methods are the double and triple rotation algorithm.

Content

The present submission contains :

  • 4 example files: one for the planar fit algorithm, one for the double rotation, one for the triple rotation and one for the estimation of the friction velocity with the different retrieval algorithms.

  • The function tiltCorrection.m

  • The function friction_velocity.m

  • the file data.mat that includes simulated wind data

Any comment, question or suggestion to improve the algorithm is warmly welcomed.

Added project website

3.1.0.2

Updated Matlab release compatibility

3.1.0.1

Description updated

3.1.0.0

Live script examples are now used

3.0.0.1

Added the file data.mat for the examples

3.0.0.0

Added an option to account for possible measurement bias (the coefficient 'b0'). The option is written as: tiltCorretion(...,"Err",1) (account for possible bias) or tiltCorretion(...,"Err",0) (ignore possible bias) - >Thank Astrid for the remark
