    Abstract

    Winds have been monitored in Kapatgudda ranges near Gadag at two locations for over a year. The winds measured on hourly basis has indicated it as one of country's most windy sites. With a view to underatand the wind system in these ranges a wind monitoring campaign was organised during the last week of July 1990. The exercise had four parts. (a) To get an idea of winds at altitudes from 10 to 100 m above ground level in upwind and downwind sides of predominant wind directions in Kappatgudda hill range. (b) To check the possibility of obtaining similar winds in the adjoining hills over the range. (c) Preliminary investigation regarding a possible large scale wind monitoring programme for the entire hill range. (d) Make some preliminary studies on an isolated hill with regard to terrain induced acceleration in a reasonably high wind area.
