Abstract

High-resolution three-dimensional simulations of flows over East Falkland, South Atlantic, are presented. With a temperature inversion upwind, lee waves, rotors and hydraulic jumps are found to occur, giving rise to highly unsteady phenomena such as wakes and eddy shedding. Such flows are known to represent a significant hazard to aviation. Copyright © 2006 Royal Meteorological Society
