Surface wind characterization at an Antarctic coastal station, Maitri
Keywords:Wind chill factor, Katabatic winds, Blizzards, Maitri
Surface winds in the atmosphere of Maitri (70.7º S, 11.7º E) a coastal Indian station have been analysed for the year 1992. Surface winds blow most frequently from the sector 165° ± 25°. Wind chill factor for the year 1992 shows that chilling is highest during the month of August and lowest during the month of January. Two cases of blizzards one during summer and another during winter have also been studied. Surface winds remained practically from the SE, SSE and SW sector during the blizzards.
