Two versions of the mesoscale, one-level, primitive equations wind model of Danard (1977) have been adapted to northeastern Alberta. The model starts from a surface wind obtained from a balance between large-scale pressure gradient, Coriolis, and frictional forces. The surface temperatures and...
A feasibility study for the estimation of atmospheric dispersion coefficients from wind fluctuation statistics in the AOSERP study areaDownload
During the fall and winter of 1976-77 a project was undertaken to establish the feasibility of using a bivane anemometer to calculate dispersion coefficients from wind fluctuation statistics. The measurements procedure and the experimental results are described in this report. It was determined...
In many respects, the climate of northeastern Alberta resembles that of the central portions of the province. It is generally somewhat cooler, especially In winter, and precipitation is slightly less. The area has a very definite continental climate and its distance from the Pacific Ocean and the...
