Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM) Aircraft Data for the Terrain-induced Rotor EXperiment (T-REX)

Status: Not defined
Publication State: published

Abstract

T-REX (Formerly SWRP - Sierra Wave Rotor Project) was a joint American/European project that took measurements of strong gravity wave activity and associated rotor activity beneath the waves in the lee of the Sierra Nevada mountains, California, USA.

Measurements were made by three aircraft including the FAAM BAE-146 aircraft and many ground based instruments.

The UK partners are the Met Office and the University of Leeds.

Motivated by aviation safety issues, the main scientific objectives are to improve the understanding of the atmospheric conditions conducive to strong gravity wave activity, wave induced rotors and gravity wave breaking.
