Abstract

letters to the editor Detection o f Semidiurnal Win d Taiwan in Fig. 1), the Atmospheric Science Depart- Oscillation s wit h a Radar Profiler ment operates simultaneously a surface meteorologi- cal station and a pulsed Doppler clear-air radar wind profiler. The instrumentation details of the NCU wind 1 • Introductio n profiler can be found in Carter et al. (1995). The ob- served hourly surface pressures have been archived Som e recent studies (Williams et al. 1992; since 1983, while the vertical wind profiles have been Whiteman and Bian 1994,1995; Williams and Avery archived for every half hour for 319 days in 1995 and 1996a,b) have identified a tropospheric semidiurnal 1996. These data were made available to us by the wind oscillation using radar wind profiler data. Based NCU Atmospheric Science Department.
