Abstract or Summary
  • An unique opportunity to investigate wind flow patterns and calm air patterns arose from the acquisition of a survey by Clarence L. Smalley on air flow patterns in the San Francisco Bay area from 1952 through 1955. An analysis was made of the wind patterns and calms in the study area and of the factors affecting these patterns. The wind flow patterns were described and organized into forty-two patterns. Calm periods were separated into eight groups based upon persistence. Analysis procedure followed a systematic approach based on the prevalence of wind flow patterns and calms on a diurnal and seasonal basis. Variations in wind flow patterns were observed six hours apart during a day. The seasonal wind patterns were divided into ninety-eight periods of fifteen days each. Calm patterns were stratified into two time periods diurnally, based upon radiosonde information. Seasonal calm patterns were stratified into six periods. The results of these stratifications were then analyzed statistically.
