Abstract The Tennessee River Valley in the eastern part of Tennessee is a broad valley with a moist climate and extensive forest cover. A series of 50–100-m-high parallel ridges forms corrugations along the floor of the valley. Tower measurements and numerical simulations are used in this paper to study the channeling of the winds in this valley over the diurnal cycle. At night, pressure-driven channeling caused by geostrophic imbalances is often present, but this channeling tends to be… CONTINUE READING
