The radiometer data collected in the field experiments in Hong Kong in 2004 and 2006 are considered in the study. Two approaches are adopted to illustrate the application potential of an upstream radiometer in the monitoring and forecasting of terrain-induced disturbances:-
(a) observational study of the relationship between the occurrence of mountain wake in the airport area and the upstream temperature profile as measured by the radiometer; and
(b) numerical modelling study initialized by the temperature profile from the radiometer, together with the wind profile from a radar wind profiler, to forecast mountain waves and wake.
