Paper Title:
Wind Speed Profile and Gradient Height in Typhoons Observed by Vehicular Doppler Radar in South China
  Abstract

The recent development of Doppler radar sensor has allowed to study the typhoon wind structure more accuracy and systematic. In order to obtain more wind data near typhoon eye-wall, vehicular Doppler radar emerge as the times require. Based on two typhoon observed results carried out by vehicular Doppler radar in category A terrain, firstly the 10min mean wind profiles under 1000m height in different regions of typhoon were analyzed. The typhoon mean wind speeds increase a logarithmic law with height at nearly lower two hundred meters in all regions of typhoons. Using the power law to fit wind profiles, the exponential index α in pre-eye-wall region is greater than it in post-eye-wall region, and it decreases with increasing the mean wind speed. Secondly, based on analyzing the relationship between mean wind speed and wind ratio, the calculation formula for nominal gradient height were established in category A terrain. Finally introducing the probability method to study the mean wind profile, the exponential index α was established in category A terrain.
