Wind Tower-Weather Station

May 11, 2020

The wind tower is the tallest structure in Masdar City. A standard CSI weather station, with addition of a nephelometer (dust sensor) was deployed in 2010 to control wind-tower wind-driven cooling functions. These measurements, because of the Wind Tower’s high elevation, are least affected by construction of new buildings and landscape changes that are unavoidable in the growing urban environment of Masdar City. The remote location of the 50m wind mast provides a second location that has been relatively unaffected by development as of 2020.
