Barro Colorado Island (BCI), Lutz catchment tower
Location 9°9'42.36"N, 79°50'15.67"W
Wind speed, electronic sensor, interval max/min/avg
Lutz catchment is a 9.73ha protected watershed on BCI
The Lutz tower was built in 1972 and was originally 42m. In 2002 it was increased to 48m
The data from 48m should be considered a separate data series from the data at 42m. Wind speed is significantly higher at 48m due to the distance to the top of the canopy.
