Diurnal wind variation in the planetary boundary layer during southwest monsoon over Sriharikota
Three hourly pilot balloon winds collected over SHAR DURING FOUR DAYS OF July 1988 were analysed and existence of a diurnal cycle of variation at low level winds was established, Maximum changes in the wind speed occurred towards midnight. Harmonic analysis was performed for both the meridional and zonal component winds and the results are presented. The results suggest the PBL over SHAR to be about 1000 m thick. The shear and the steadiness factor values have also been evaluated and discussed.
