Documentation updates

The "135-m Meteorological Masts at the National Wind Technology Center: Instrumentation, Data Acquisition and Processing" document has been updated today.

Changes include:
  • the correct version of the friction velocity. It is calculated as u_* = ({\overline{u^\prime w^\prime}}^2+{\overline{v^\prime w^\prime}}^2)^{1/4}. Previously this was incorrectly given as \sqrt\overline{u^\prime w^\prime}. Thanks to Jenni Rinker for spotting that.
  • the calculation of the vapor pressure has been added.
