This thesis research used the near surface data from Low Level Wind Shear Alert System (LLWAS) and Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS), as well as the upper air data from CWB as boundary conditions for CALMET meteorological model to simulate low level (〈1000 meters) wind field above Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. For CALMET, a model commonly used on meso-scale wind field modeling, the research focuses on modification and compliance of CALMAT for 3-dimensional wind field simulation in micro-scale region. The results show that the predicted wind field below 100 meters height has reliable accuracy, however, restricted by the amount of upper air station data, the model cannot adequately predict higher level (100meters -1000meters) wind field. Nevertheless, by sensitivity analysis with dummy higher level wind field data, the CALMET model shows good low level wind field prediction. The thesis research demonstrates that the model is able to predict updrafts and downdrafts in local area as well as wind shear occurrence, which may be used to alert aircrafts to avoid microbursts and wind shear at the phase of approach and landing.

Key words: low level wind shear, microburst, CALMET


Low level wind shear is a micro-scale meteorological phenomenon occurring over a short time and small distance. It is commonly observed near microbursts and downbursts caused by thunderstorms and whether fronts. Wind shear has a significant effect during take-off and landing of aircraft due to its effects on control of the aircraft, and it has been a sole or contributing cause of many aircraft safety events. Low level wind shear alert system (LLWAS) measures surface wind direction and wind speed using a network of remote sensor stations which situated near runways and along approach or departure paths of airport. The purpose of LLWAS is to detect low level wind shear and provide alarm information to air traffic control. LLWAS information is expected to reduce the hazard that aircraft encounters low level wind shear and improve aeronautical safety. However, LLWAS has several limitations: (1) winds above the sensors are not detected; (2) winds beyond the peripheral sensors are not detected; (3) updrafts and downdrafts are not detected; and (4) if a shear boundary happens to pass a particular peripheral sensor and the centerfield sensor simultaneously, an alarm will not occur.[1] The above stated limitations leads to some meteorological phenomena such as microbursts which may be smaller than the spacing between the sensors and thus may not be detected. Delta Air Lines Flight 191, a widely known aircraft crash event was resulted from a fatal wind shear caused by a microburst. The microburst occurred in the air and had yet to touch the ground and detected by LLWAS sensors.
This research intends to use numerical modeling to resolve the limitations of LLWAS. By using LLWAS and AWOS measured data as boundary conditions for CALMET, this meteorological model simulated 3-dimensional wind field above Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. The parameters and setting in CALMET is trimmed to suit for high temporal and spatial resolution requirement of micro-scale and highly dynamic wind field simulation. Further analyze downdraft events, this research also establishes methods to characterize and describe the life cycle, location, and strength of downburst near the surface.


This research collects the LLWAS data of Taoyuan International Airport in time period from 01/07/2011 to 31/07/2012. Based on the strength of wind gain, wind loss, alert area, and mesoscale meteorological information during the time interval, the data are statistical analyzed to find the possible causes of low level wind shear in the area. By choosing the time period sensitive to wind shear occurrence, detailed information of LLWAS, AWOS and sounding balloon are collected as the boundary conditions that CALMET meteorological modeling is required to simulate low level wind field. Simulation predicted wind field at altitudes 10m, 30m, 50m, 100m, 150m, 200m, 300m and 500m at a time step of 10 seconds are analyzed. The accuracy of positional CALMET modeling is justified by the time period sum of errors of the predicted and true measure wind speeds and wind directions individually. In order to identify the strength and the cover area of downdraft, a set of characterizing parameters and a procedure have been developed. In addition, a method base on image processing has been developed to calculate wind shear strength along and cross the runways.


The statistical analysis of LLWAS alert data is listed in table 2.3-3(mesoscale meteorological events) and appendix I(alert areas). The data shows that the southern west part of the airport is more frequent to have microburst (serious wind loss) occurrence in the time period, while in the north of the northern east part of the airport, wind shear (serious wind gain) occurs more frequent. For modeling, the geological parameters setting in CALMET are listed in table 4.1.1-1 and the parameter settings for simulation are listed in appendix III. The error analysis of CALMET modeling is discussed in chapter 5.1 and the related data are given in appendix I. The results show that a relatively large deviation of wind direction and wind speed data at LLWAS-CF station of Taoyuan International Airport in cope with other stations’ measurements. In the wind shear field diagram, CF station area constantly presented turbulence which should be caused by the obstruction of the closely neighbored buildings, that is, North-east monsoon flows through terminal 1 changes direction and speed to form a turbulence on the leeward of the building.
For case analysis, the wind field and parameter-time diagram are shown in appendix V and listed in table 5.2-3, respectively. The parameters designed to describe downdraft (downdraft area ratio, maximum value of downdraft, mean-value of downdraft, and standard deviation in specific area) show good sensitivity to downdraft events. By comparing the alert information and the simulated wind shear field shown in appendix VI, the accuracy and reliability of the model can be justified.


The results show that the predicted wind field below 100 meters height has reliable accuracy, however, restricted by the amount of upper air station data, the model cannot adequately predict higher level (100meters -1000meters) wind field. Although the present air data is not enough for CALMET to model the higher level wind field, however, it displayed temporal and spatial occurrence process of downdrafts using higher level wind field dummy data. In future study, more upper air data such as from weather Doppler radar and from downlink of aircraft sensors are recommended for more precise modeling.
