LO-LOCAT is an extensive low level turbulence program utilizing statistically representative samples of turbulence data obtained over a wide range of meteorological, topographical, seasonal, and time of day conditions. UDRI has attempted to identify which of the various meteorological and environmental conditions affect the turbulence as reflected through a number of turbulence parameters. The turbulence parameters considered were sigma, the standard deviation of the gust velocity b, the turbulence intensity L, the scale of turbulence and No, the characteristic frequency. The basic method of mathematical analysis was a stepwise regression scheme which related the environmental conditions to the various turbulence parameters based upon statistical priority. It is felt that the regression scheme provides a detailed outline of statistical relationships which can be used as a guide for further investigation. Author
