Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
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.
