Field measurements of wind velocity and direction carried out at the
University of Minnesota Health Science Complex from July 1 to November 30, 1994,
are reported. Two anemometers and one wind direction vane were used in the
measurements, One anemometer was located outside the Unit B/C door, 4.3 m above
the sidewalk and 0.5 m out from the wall. The other anemometer and a wind
direction vane were installed atop the north-west corner of the Unit A building to
provide information on the wind conditions above the buildings. Conditional sampling
using the ground level anemometer to provide minimum threshold wind speeds was
used to identify critical wind directions.
