An international discussion about strong thermal releases: PG Forum > Plucked up by a dust devil – what to do?
They may be visible (dust devil) or not, and can happen anywhere (launch, hillside or LZ) close to terrain, with the rotation slowing as the thermal gains distance from the terrain.
Something to keep in mind as we have entered the period of the year with the highest probability of these events happening.
Thanks for the info and reminder Jerome. I saw a few small dust devils on Marshall launch yesterday around 3:30pm.
