Wind will be measured and recorded before each pair of runs; in the future I might experiment with vehicle-mounted anemometers, but not now. I've looked at stormchaser equipment, which seems to be the primary market for vehicle-mounted systems, and all of them stick up into the flow field around the vehicle.
