Title: A vertical perspective of Santa Ana winds in a canyon

Author: Ryan, Bill C.;

Date: 1969

Source: Res. Paper PSW-RP-052. Albany, CA: Pacific Southwest Research Station, Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture; 18 p

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: The cross-section analyses of the 3 days of weak Santa Ana conditions reveal how rapid changes in windspeed and direction may occur under these conditions. The analyses indicate the significant dip of the wind field down the lee side of the range even under relatively light wind conditions, and show how opposing wind systems interact on the lee side to allow rapidly changing surface winds. The well-defined convergence zone and the vertical wind field are obvious.
