Quantifying microburst wind and turbulence enhancement in canyons

Katja Friedrich & Luchetti Nicholas
This data set contains model output from NCARS's Weather and Research Forecasting(WRF) model run in large-eddy simulation (LES) mode (WRF v3.6). A series of idealized simulations were conducted with the center of microburst downdrafts were placed 1.3 and 3.3 km upwind of a series of canyon types differing in length and slope angle. These canyon simulations are compared to microburst outflow boundary characteristics in flat terrain deriving topographic multiplier and differences in horizontal winds (wsp),...
