A DISCUSSION OF HORIZONTAL WIND VECTOR DETERMINATIONS IN SOUTH LOUISIANA: A METEOROLOGICAL MONITORING STUDY

The impact of air pollution caused by traffic has become a major environmental consideration in developing new and improved highway facilities. The acquisition of meaningful meteorological data which are applicable to individual highway projects is essential to effective air quality analyses. These data are used as inputs to air pollution dispersion models and for other departmental needs. A standard technique for determining representative meteorological monitoring sites in south central and southwestern Louisiana was investigated and made operational. From these centralized sites, wind vectors may be obtained which are approximately equivalent to the vectors throughout the respective sub-regions of which the sites are representative.
