    • Abstract:
      This revised report has new material reg????ding: The automated calculation of time height cross-sections, turbulence data, and the use of relative aircraft coordinates for wind components. The DOT/RSPA/John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (Volpe Center) has been developing data processing software for the meteorological tower and tethersonde data observed during the special wake vortex experiment conducted at Idaho Falls in 1990. In addition, the data have been analyzed by Volpe Center meteorological support personnel for the purpose of preparing "canonical cases" for study by wake vortex modelers. The following material is the first such case developed for a particularly strong and persistent vortex pair from Run 9, a B-757 flyby at 0818 Local Standard Time (LST) on 25 September, 1990. Data are provided in three forms: Raw data, data smoothed in time and height, and best fit polynomials.
