TOMÁS MORALES ALCOTZI, ADALBERTO TEJEDA MARTÍNEZ, JUAN CERVANTES PÉREZ

Abstract

By applying a method of linear regression, it was possible to relate the surface wind shift with respect to the wind direction at 850 mb as function of time of day, actual synoptic situation, wind speed at 850 mb, atmospheric stability, existence of thermal inversions up to 850 mb, and cloudiness. The correlation coefficients obtained in the computations were high, but the sample sizes were small.
