During its first few deployments, the mobile observatory has captured unique observations. Among them are vertical air motion measurements along the faces of the supertall One Vanderbilt skyscraper in Manhattan, NY which are shown to hold information critical to improving our understanding of the role of buildings in the ventilation of heat, pollution, and contaminants in urban street channels. Also, air temperature measurements collected during travel along a transect between Suffolk County and Manhattan, NY offer a high-resolution view of the urban heat island and reveal that temperature disparities also exist within the urban dome across different communities.
