Terrain-Induced Rotor Experiment (T-Rex)

Description:

The Terrain-Induced Rotor Experiment (T-REX) is a coordinated international project focused on the investigation of atmospheric rotors and closely related phenomena in complex terrain. The T-REX field campaign took place during March and April 2006 in the lee of the southern Sierra Nevada in eastern California, a region notorious for intense windstorms and rotors. The pilot Sierra Rotors campaign took place in the same location in March and April 2004. The rich dataset collected during T-REX along with high-resolution models and theoretical advancements provide the basis for an integrative perspective on rotors, mountain waves and boundary-layer dynamics. The articles will be presented below as they are published. The articles will appear in the several journal titles: Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, Monthly Weather Review, Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences, Journal of Applied Meteorology and Climatology and Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology. The overview article for this collection can be found here.
