Trimodal Characteristics of Tropical Convection
It has long been known that trade wind cumulus and deep cumulonimbus represent primary components of the broad spectrum of cumulus clouds in the Tropics, which has led to the concept of a bimodalExpand
Kinematic and Thermodynamic Characteristics of the Flow over the Western Pacific Warm Pool during TOGA COARE
Abstract Rawinsonde and satellite infrared radiation (IR) data from the Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere (TOGA) Coupled Ocean Atmosphere Response Experiment (COARE) are used to investigate mean andExpand
Organizational Modes of Midlatitude Mesoscale Convective Systems
This paper discusses common modes of mesoscale convective organization. Using 2-km national composite reflectivity data, the authors investigated linear mesoscale convective systems (MCSs) thatExpand
Organization and Environmental Properties of Extreme-Rain-Producing Mesoscale Convective Systems
This study examines the radar-indicated structures and other features of extreme rain events in the United States over a 3-yr period. A rainfall event is defined as “extreme” when the 24-hExpand
Tropical Inversions near the 0°C Level
Abstract Soundings taken from the tropical western Pacific warm pool region during TOGA COARE reveal the common occurrence of temperature and moisture perturbations near the 0°C level. TheExpand
Structure and Properties of Madden–Julian Oscillations Deduced from DYNAMO Sounding Arrays
AbstractThe kinematic and thermodynamic characteristics of the October and November 2011 Madden–Julian oscillations (MJOs) that occurred over the Indian Ocean during Dynamics of the MJO (DYNAMO) areExpand
Corrected TOGA COARE Sounding Humidity Data: Impact on Diagnosed Properties of Convection and Climate over the Warm Pool
This study reports on the humidity corrections in the Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere (TOGA) Coupled Ocean‐Atmosphere Response Experiment (COARE) upper-air sounding dataset and their impact onExpand
The Relationship of Surface Pressure Features to the Precipitation and Airflow Structure of an Intense Midlatitude Squall Line
Abstract Observations from the Oklahoma–Kansas Preliminary Regional Experiment for STORM-Central (OK PRE-STORM) have been used to document the surface pressure features accompanying an intenseExpand
Partitioning tropical heat and moisture budgets into cumulus and mesoscale components: implications for cumulus parameterization
Abstract Results from recent heat and moisture budget studies of tropical mesoscale convective systems have been used to partition the total heating in tropical disturbances into cumulus andExpand
