Abstract:

This report documents the results of a study to determine percent occurrence frequency of crosswinds at 39 selected European bases. It provides percent frequency of occurrence tables for crosswinds greater than or equal to 10, 15, 20, and 25 knots under various weather conditions such as precipitation and below-freezing temperature. Sixteen tables are provided for each base, and each set is followed by a number of actual cases table. The study should help forecasters, planners, and engineers in estimating crosswind possibilities at various speed thresholds, and should further help in estimating those during rain, snow, and below-freezing conditions.
