A power-spectrum analysis of horizontal wind speed is made over a wide range of frequencies by piecing together various portions of the spectrum. There appear to be two major eddy-energy peaks in the spectrum ; one peak occurs at a period of about 4 days, and a second peak occurs at a period of about 1 minute. Between the two peaks, a broad spectral gap is centered at a frequency ranging from 1 to 10 cycles per hour. The spectral gap seems to exist under varying terrain and synoptic conditions.
