temporal and spatial scales. Second, flow over complex terrain can pose a hazard to aircraft. Third, complex terrain is also capable of inducing circulations that vent particulate matter and trace gasses into midtroposphere altitudes and the free atmosphere ( Henne et al. 2004 ). As a result, complex terrain flows may have a significant role in air quality and potentially in climate change studies. Great technological advancements have occurred in the past 40 years with laser remote sensing that have

) with thermally driven upvalley and upslope flows ( Fig. 2a ). A transition from a quiescent valley atmosphere to a valley atmosphere affected by mountain-wave activity occurred during midafternoon between 2300 and 0000 UTC ( Fig. 2b ). While southeasterly flow prevailed in the valley center the flow on the western slope became more irregular with downslope winds replacing the upslope winds and colliding with the upvalley flow ( Fig. 2c ). Southeasterly winds up to 15 m s −1 in a layer between 400
