PostHeaderIcon Snow-fence Effect

wind being forced to rise up over the top of and divert around any large object or group of objects. Examples include a container ship, a large spectator fleet or a tightly packed group of competitors. There is dirty air downwind of the obstruction, and also directly upwind. This is because the wind starts to divert at a distance equal to twice the height and twice the width of the obstruction.
