Abstract : The Atmospheric Sciences Department at the University of Washington has established an experimental site on Lake Washington, where turbulent fluxes, wave height, and other air-sea interaction related measurements are obtained. The present configuration consists of a mast, positioned 30 m from shore, on which a variety of meteorological instruments are mounted. The instrument analog signals are sent back to shore via lines and are digitized and recorded on audio tape with a frequency shift keying system.
