Prevailing Winds on Whiteface Mountain As Indicated by Flag Trees Mountain
Abstract:The flag trees on Whiteface Mountain in New York's Adirondack Mountains were studied to determine the direction of prevailing winds. Using both the direction of branch growth and the position of reaction wood in the trunk tops, a very complex wind pattern was found. Wind instruments placed at various locations on the mountain during summer recorded the same prevailing winds as indicated by the trees. Forest Sci. 16: 222-229.
