The Kiyokawa-dashi (strong local wind) was observed with a coherent Doppler lidar at the exit of the Mogami Valley, in Kiyokawa (38.80°N, 140.01°E, 20 m MSL) during the summers of 2003 and 2004. Used to define days on which the Kiyokawa-dashi wind blew were meteorological data obtained from four automatic weather stations installed at four observation sites: Kiyokawa, Karikawa (38.79 °N, 139.99°E, 15 m MSL), Mawadate (38.81°N, 139.92°E, 10 m MSL) and Hirono (38.83°N, 139.85°E, 5 m MSL).
