A current measurement by moored savonius meters

Preliminary result
  • Kenzo Takano
Short Communication


A current measurement by four Savonius current meters is done for a little longer than eight days in the north-western Pacific. The result of a preliminary analysis of the records is described. Periods around twenty-four hours are dominant. The energy spectra match the -5/3 law for the frequency range up to the diurnal frequency.
