Abstract

The measurements of wind speed from landfalling tropical cyclones by Texas Tech University (TTU) is described. Three deployment sites were chosen for instrumented towers based on experimental plans, exposure and location relative to anticipated point of landfall. The data from each deployment site was stratified into four roughness regimes to examine effect of upstream terrain roughness on turbulence statistics. The results show that upstream terrain roughness had direct effect on mean and gust wind speeds.
