How sensitive are the CSAT3A, CSAT3AH, CSAT3B, and CSAT3BH velocity measurements to sea spray in periods of high wind speed?

The CSAT3A, CSAT3AH, CSAT3B, and CSAT3BH—like other sonic anemometers—measure wind speed along the sonic path using ultrasonic signals. If the salt spray blocks the sonic path, the sonic anemometer will not be able to make measurements. The same is true if a thick layer of salt is deposited on the transducer faces.
