May 2019. The job of a wind measurement manager comes with many perks. Outdoor days, like this event in Cape Town, when G7’s Wind Measurement team, Eddy Mokhudu (intern) and Francois Pigeau (wind measurement manager), together with Kalle Wikmeyr (AQ Systems) tested the Sodar AQ510 on Signal Hill.
“Sodar (Sound Detection And Ranging) is a technology that makes it possible to measure wind profiles with the help of sound. It works in the same way as a radar system but sends out sound waves, instead of radio signals, for detection.”
