WIND SHEAR: A LITERATURE SEARCH, ANALYSIS, AND ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY

A literature search of recent publications (post 1970) on low-altitude wind shear and its relationship to aircraft operations during approach, landing, and takeoff was made. An analysis of the reviewed literature with respect to (1) wind shear characterization/atmospheric modeling, (2) hazard definition/accident analysis, (3) ground-based equipment, (4) airborne equipment, (5) flight test and simulation, (6) forecasting/meteorology, and (7) flight operations/pilot training was made. The analysis of the 216 documents identified by the search are summarized. (Author)
