The result is a broad zone of formidable mixing along the frontal boundary, with strong turbulence and the potential for strong wind shear
Vertical wind shear
is defined as the amount of change in wind direction and velocity with increasing altitude .
Lighter wind shears
also are associated with La NiAaAaAeA~a in the Atlantic, which doesn't suppress storms and c create ideal conditions for hurricanes.
To understand the increased frequency in tornado outbreaks, the researchers looked at two factors: convective available potential energy, or CAPE, and storm relative helicity, which is a measure of vertical wind shear
The computational model allows for three-dimensional analysis of wind shear
and unsteady turbulence over the island.
It had many firings in the 1960s, during which nighttime chemical releases yielded valuable data on wind shear
at altitudes up to 130 kilometers (81 miles).
A warm or "El Nino" phase typically brings elevated wind shear
to the Atlantic deep tropics, suppressing tropical cyclone development and generally leading to fewer hurricanes for the Atlantic Basin.
This is achieved using a wind shear
exponent or wind shear
coefficient (WSC), variation in wind speed as a function of height, with two mathematical models of power law (PL) and Logarithmic Law (LL) used for extrapolation .
The aviation community did not pay much attention to the threat of variable wind fields until one Boeing-727 flight of Eastern Airlines crashed as a result of serious wind shear
in 1975 .
The importance of characterizing the wind shear
at a specified location for the utilization of wind turbine is of vital importance.
Using computer simulations of cloud systems, Rafkin found that with a bit of wind shear
, Titan could produce giant, long-lasting storm systems.
The company said these two Terminal Doppler Lidar systems are capable of detecting nearby low-level wind shear
and turbulence during non-precipitation conditions.
