The primary sponsor of the Terrain-Induced Rotor Experiment is the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF). The involvement of the NSF-sponsored Lower Atmospheric Observing Facilities from the University of Wyoming and those managed and operated by the NCAR Earth Observing Laboratory (EOL) is acknowledged. The data were downloaded from the T-REX data archive, which is maintained by NCAR EOL. We are grateful to Dr. Steven Mueller for his assistance in developing the wave-fitting algorithm and to Ms. Ming Xiao at DRI for generating Fig. 3. In the initial stages of this work, the second author was supported by NSF Grant ATM-0524891 to the Desert Research Institute.
At the center ISS, surface measurements continued on battery power during the 2000––2200 UTC power-outage period that affected the wind profiler.
