The effect of spanwise variations in gust intensity on the power spectrum directly due to atmospheric turbulence is calculated for several analytic approximations to the correlation function or power spectra of atmospheric turbulence, for several spanwise weighing functions (span loadings), and for various angles of sweepback.
