Abstract: Wind shear incidences are always related to local downburst, gust front or other systems. An analysis of a low-level wind shear case at Guangzhou Baiyun airport on Jul 21, 2005 shows that this case was caused by downburst and gust front. The real-time wind data from local terminal Doppler radar and auto weather observation stations were calculated to obtain the degree of wind shear and turbulence. Flight data belong to one aircraft has verified the method to alert wind shear is feasible under the limited resources of Guangzhou Baiyun airport.
