Fortune Bay: Dog Island - DOGIS

DOGIS (47.61463 N, 55.35221 W): is a 10 m mast weather station equipped with a Gill ultrasonic wind sensor (WindSonic, option 4). The data are collected via a SUTRON Satlink2-V2 logger connected to an Omni-directional GOES antenna; transmitting near real-time data every hour. 1 min average wind speed and direction as well as gust (maximum) are calculated from the sensor 1 Hz internal sampling rate and recorded by the logger every 10 min. The mast is installed on a barren island, about 10 m height from the mean sea level, located in the center of Belle Bay, the main head of Fortune Bay. Wind observations are thus made at about 20 m from mean sea level. This weather station was installed as part of a bay-scale monitoring program that occurred from May 2015 to May 2017 and that aimed at understanding the dominant ocean dynamics of Fortune Bay. It has been maintained ever since and visited on a yearly basis (approximately).
