    Severe downslope windstorms (i.e., windstorms with gusts of at least 27 m/s, or 60 miles per hour (mph)) constitute a substantial threat to public safety in several population centers of the western U.S. One of these is to the east of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, in particular the cities of Boulder and Fort Collins. A high wind storm which began early in the morning of 1 December reached wind speeds as high as miles per hour ( km/h) in Centerville, Utah, United States and surrounding cities. Damage was reported throughout Davis County, and extending into Weber and Salt Lake counties, ranging from Ogden down to Salt Lake City. That morning Mayor Ron Russell of Centerville declared a local state.

Pulsating Downslope Windstorms. the book deals with the latitudinal, altitudinal and topographic controls of meteorological elements, circulation systems.

An identical phenomenon is shown to be characteristic of the high drag regime in severe downslope windstorms simulated in flows characterized by upstream profiles having constant wind and stability. This newly discovered pulsation phenomenon is therefore a generic property of flows induced by the breaking of topographically forced internal by: 3m.o 20 RANGE km.

Many residents of the northern Wasatch Front recall the major downslope windstorm that occurred on December 1st,when wind gusts reached more than mph near Centerville.

Discussion of the event from previous Wasatch Weather Weenies posts is available here. Last night a downslope windstorm impacted the Wasatch Front, including the eastern Salt Lake Valley. Peak wind gusts reported to MesoWest include: US at Park Lane: 68 mph Centerville: 61 and 64 mph (Two sites) University of Utah: 58 mph Farmington: 57 mph Bountiful Bench: 51 mph As far as downslope windstorms go, this was a modest event.

Review of downslope windstorms in Japan 3. Downslope windstorms in Japan. Yamaji-kaze. The Yamaji-kaze is a typical downslope windstorm in Japan (No. 26 in Fig. 1(b) and Table 1). It is a strong southerly wind that occurs on the northern side of the Shikoku Mountains with a mountain width of 40 km and the Niihama Plain facing the Setouchi File Size: 2MB.

The effects of nonlinearity on the flow are introduced in a discussion of downslope windstorms. Three different theoretical models of the downslope windstorm are compared.

The first argues that the development of strong downslope winds is analogous to the transition from subcritical to supercritical flow in a hydraulic by: These are mountain waves, rotors, downslope windstorms, gap winds and barrier jets.

The essence of many of these phenomena is described by mountain wave theory. Recent advances in observation technologies and their application in field programs, as well as in numerical modeling, have led to new understanding, including the incorporation of Cited by: MOUNTAIN WAVES AND DOWNSLOPE WINDSTORMS The form for A can be determined from the lower- boundary condition to ensure that w!(z = 0) = u0∂ht/∂ example, if our terrain profile is given by ht(x) = hm sin kx, () where hm is the amplitude of the terrain profile, then we must have w!(z = 0) = u0khm cos kx.

Geophys. Downslope windstorms occur not only on Earth but are also believed to occur in Martian craters (Magalhaes and Young ). The large number of impact craters on Mars and their possible impact on dust transport and deposition has led to a number of studies on flow over craters (Greeley et al.

; Rafkin et al. ), including simulations for Earth's atmosphere (Soontiens et al. ATM / { Downslope windstorms and the hydraulic jump Spring, { Fovell Flow passing over an obstacle can do one of two things, become thicker or thinner.

In the thickening uid, the ow decelerates as kinetic energy (KE) is converted to potential energy (PE). Less intuitively, the thinning uid converts PE to KE as it ascends the mountain.

Downslope windstorms can also be considered hydraulic jump phenomena in which flow becomes supercritical above and to the lee of a mountain barrier. Downslope windstorms are often known by local names in areas where they occur throughout the world (e.g., the bora along the northeastern shore of the Adriatic Sea and the Taku wind along the.

Downslope winds are called fall winds or katabatic winds. Windstorms of this type are called boras or downslope windstorms. Warm air flowing poleward to the east of intense low-pressure systems can also produce windstorms. In North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula such a windstorm, called khamsin, can transport large amounts of dust and sand.

Locations of downslope windstorms (hereafter, “windstorms”) occurrence in the Russian Arctic is shown in Fig. Novaya Zemlya mountain ridge has a huge horizontal scale ( km wide and about km long); the height of the ridge varies from m on the Southern Island to m on the Northern Island with peaks up to m.

The transition from upslope to downslope wind begins soon after the first slopes go into afternoon shadow and cooling of the surface begins.

In individual draws and on slopes going into shadow, the transition period consists of (1) dying of the upslope wind, (2) a period of relative calm, and (3) gentle laminar flow downslope.

The Yeongdong region, located east of the Taebaek Mountains, South Korea, often experiences severe windstorms in spring, causing a lot of damages, especially when forest fires spread out rapidly by strong winds.

Here, the characteristics and generation mechanisms of the windstorms in the Yeongdong region on 8 April are examined through a high-resolution Weather Research and Forecasting.
