Since we upon the correspondence between a semidiurnal wind have hourly surface pressure observations from this subtropical station at our disposal, as well as a much component isolated from radar wind profiles and larger sample of vertical wind profiles than WB's , we semidiurnal tide theory (Chapman and Lindzen 1970), use these data to address the two issues.
