Aeolian Sediment Transport and Coastal Dune Evolution
As part of a scientific field experiment on wind and wave driven sediment transport on the Washington coast, we utilized a Dyacon weather station to provide relevant meteorological measurements. Despite the harsh conditions of the Washington coast, including high wind speeds and the corrosive effects of salt spray, the Dyacon system performed well throughout the year long study. Co-located measurements using an additional (much more expensive) competitor’s meteorological station also showed the Dyacon system has consistently reliable measurements – with the two datasets agreeing remarkably well. The Dyacon weather station far exceeded our expectations and it was a pleasure working with Eugene on this study!
