Abstract : A set of multiple linear regression equations for predicting gustiness at the 204-ft level on the Missile Meteorology Research Tower at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, were derived and is discussed. At the 95% confidence level, the accuracy of the equations ranges from + or 3.1 mph for the fall season to + or - 5.0 mph for the spring. Methods of deriving and testing the equations are discussed. Tables of annual and seasonal distribution of gustiness are presented. (Author)
