Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PGandE) has sponsored development of a computer-based system for real-time analysis of local wind measurements in a complex-terrain setting. Mass-consistent modeling of tower- and Doppler-sounder data produces spatial wind-vector patterns on a color-graphic display. The system is currently deployed at the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant to assist meteorologists in supporting response to radiological emergencies.
