Abstract:

A Summary Report of Drexel Tower Data Analysis for Wind Shear is provided. Meteorological measurements made over a 7-year period on a 1000 ft tower were analyzed for frequency of occurrence of wind shears at various levels, frequency of occurrence of wind shears with wind directions at various levels, wind shear magnitudes related to temperature differences at various levels and occurrences of wind shears in connection with inversions, fronts, and thunderstorms. It is shown that there is no one unique recognizable situation that will produce wind shears of any specific magnitude. Author
