Abstract

The one-dimensional terrain height variance spectra of the Front Range west of Boulder, Colorado, is compared with that of the hypothetical two-dimensional mountain used by several investigators in their modeling studies of downslope winds. The terrain height variance of the hypothetical mountain exceeds that of the Front Range on scales longer than 25 km. On shorter scales, the terrain height variances of the hypothetical mountain decreases at an unrealistic rate.-from Authors
