Abstract

Abstract – High dynamic range and high accuracy flow sensor is a highly desirable device in quantifying mixing in the atmosphere and the ocean, which is critical in our understanding of energy dissipation and flux studies. We discuss a design that utilizes only a single point sensor oriented in different angles, based on our novel temperature sensor using silicon Fabry-Perot interferometry approach. We report the sensitivity of a high-dynamic range sensor head orientation in such configuration. We discuss initial configuration, data collection, processing, analysis and calibration including sensor orientation for future deployment.
