  • Gradient adjustment in an axisymmetric vortex 

    Raghunandan, Sudama; Schubert, Wayne H.
    We consider gradient adjustment in an axisymmetric vortex. From an initially unbalanced state, the final adjusted state is obtained. Initially, the geopotential is flat and the velocity field is given by the Rankine vortex. ...
  • Observations of a midlatitude squall line boundary layer wake 

    Hamilton, Paul J.; Johnson, Richard H., (Richard Harlan)
    Mesoscale pressure perturbations frequently observed with mesoscale convective systems (MCS) are examined with special emphasis on the characteristics, structure, lifecycle and driving mechanism of the "wake depression" ...
  • Formulation of a bulk boundary layer model with partial mixing and cloudiness 

    Randall, David A., (David Allan), 1948-; Shao, Qingqiu
    The classical cloud-topped mixed-layer model is generalized to allow for arbitrary fractional cloudiness and incomplete mixing. The boundary-layer depth and turbulence kinetic energy (TKE) are prognostically determined. ...
  • Quasi-biennial variations in the winter-time circulation of high latitudes 

    Reiter, Elmar R.; MacDonald, Bruce C.
    In the years between 1952 and 1962 a quasi-biennial modulation became apparent in the total ozone values measured over Arosa, Switzerland, during spring. The stratospheric vortex behavior in the northern hemisphere during ...
  • An analysis of the GATE aircraft pyrgeometer instrumentation 

    Albrecht, Bruce A.; Cox, Stephen K.; Prokofyev, Mikhail Alekseevich
    Significant differences in US and USSR aircraft measurements of hemispherical infrared irradiance were noted during GATE in-flight intercomparisons. In specific instances the downward irradiance measured by the USSR ...
