The Stable Atmospheric Variability And Transport (SAVANT) field campaign, collected data to understand the atmospheric characteristics during nocturnal drainage flows in shallow gullies. SAVANT was focused on understanding the complexities of the stable boundary layer. The campaign produced a rich dataset from ISS and ISFS facilities. Two Aerosol lidars and one Doppler lidar monitored the evolution of flow structure and movement of a tracer plume. This presentation will provide results of the initial investigation of drainage flow occurrences and their structure from the post-processed LiDAR data. Some of the key differences in turbulence observed due to the harvesting of crops will also be presented.
