Recent observations of mesoscale structures in intense cyclones
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractThe impact of intense cyclones is often associated with coherent mesoscale structures embedded within them. Although the formation of cold fronts is to some extent described by semi-geostrophic theory, the dynamics of many of these features are not well understood. For example, whether they could be described by a form balance appropriate on the mesoscale, or in the presence of non-conservative processes. Some recent detailed observations of cyclones and fronts are presented and some of the unknown aspects of their dynamics highlighted.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
