A numerical and climatological investigation of deep convective cloud patterns in south Florida
MetadataShow full item record
Climatological characteristics of thunderstorm activity over South Florida are presented by processing and compositing digital visible and infrared satellite imagery collected during the summer of 1983. To describe the physical processes associated with the occurrence and patterning of the satellite observed deep convection, averaged quantities of numerous synoptic variables were calculated for days which made up the satellite composites. A three-dimensional mesoscale model is also utilized to investigate the physical processes associated with the deep convection patterns over South Florida. The ...
