SOURCES OF LOW-LEVEL WIND SHEAR AROUND AIRPORTS

The intent of this paper is to point out to the aircraft operations, and particularly to the aircraft safety investigation communities, some of the potential sources of low-level wind shear at and around airports. It is evident from the survey that mathematical models of wind shear, particularly over and around buildings, require considerably more development to provide guidance material for the design of airports and aircraft and for establishing requirements, criteria, and procedures for reporting wind shear to pilots.
