Characterizing Rotations in Thermally-Driven Winds Above a Valley Floor Using Observations From the 21 August 2017 Solar Eclipse and a Climatological Record

Ross Palomaki
Thermally-driven winds in complex terrain are characterized by a diurnal cycle with upvalley winds during the day, downvalley winds at night, and transitional periods around sunrise and sunset. These winds are important for air pollution dispersion in valleys, and can also affect weather patterns on a regional scale. However, the winds are not always resolved in weather and climate models, and poor parameterization schemes result in inaccurate weather forecasting over mountainous regions. Observations of thermally-driven...
