The phenomenon of "Microburst" is known as the phenomenon of strong downward winds, which is associated with thunderstorms in which one cloud rains heavily over a small and specific area. Wind and water recoil is scattered in all directions due to the force of the fall focusing on the area.
Types of "microburst":
Strong downward winds go through three phases:
The "contact stage": the moment when the downward wind contacts the ground (the highest wind speed)
Outburst stage: The moment when the wind spreads from the point where it meets the ground
The Cushion stage: It is the last stage at the moment when the wind stretches and moves away from the point of its meeting with the ground, where a sharp decline in wind speed occurs due to the process of friction with the ground.
The phenomenon of "microburst" poses a particular danger to aircraft, especially during landing, due to the downward winds caused by the storm, as many accidents occurred because of it.
