Wind shear alerting at Hong Kong International Airport

S.Y. Lau

Hong Kong Observatory

WMO Symposium

Toulouse 2005


In Hong Kong…

  • Significant windshear : 1 in 500 flights

  • 5 typical causes

    • Winds blowing across terrain(terrain-induced)

    • Sea breeze

    • Gust fronts

    • Microbursts

    • Low-level jets

Winds Blowing Across Terrain (Terrain-induced)

  • In lighter wind conditions, low-level temperature inversion also triggers windshear (spring months)

  • Windy occasions like during TC…
