Abstract : The purpose of the report is to study wind gusts in relation to the time of day, the year, and the local terrain, and to make recommendations for calculating these characteristics. The results of these investigations are presented in a three-part paper. Part I describes the instrument devised to measure gustiness and discusses the observation procedures used with the device during the investigation. Part II contains the collated observation results, the gustiness factor derived, and recommendations for future utilization of the instruments. Part III describes and analyzes experience gained in using the data to determine maximum gustiness at several hydrometeorological stations in southeastern Kazakhstan. (Author)
