Abstract

The mountain wave phenomenon in the Appalachian region, mainly through North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, is described. The important variables necessary for the formation of mountain waves are discussed and a typical wave pattern that occurred on January 19, 1960 is described. Radar observations, a new source of information on wave cloud patterns, will be described. Data for this study were collected primarily during the fall, winter, and spring of 1959–60.
