The Sierra Rotors experiment, the intensive observational program of the Phase I of T-REX (Terrain-induced Rotor Experiment), is to take place in March and April 2004. The core of the ground-observing network in the Sierra Rotors experiment will consist of the DRI network of automatic weather stations in Owens Valley supplemented with two NCAR 915 MHz wind profilers (MAPR and MISS) plus two upwind radiosonde locations (NCAR MGLASS and NAS Lemoore). In this poster we will present preliminary analyses of the most intense wave and rotor events documented during the Sierra Rotors experiment, and compare them with the observations of wave and rotors documented during the 1950s Sierra Wave Project.
