Abstract:

Wind regime data in the form of wind roses and frequency of occurrence for nine tower levels by the month and diurnal classification are presented. Results indicate that terrain features in the vicinity of the White Sands Meteorological Research Tower exhibit a modifying effect on the diurnal and seasonal wind regime. It was also found that seasonal variations were in the form of a three season regime system rather than the expected four.
