Abstract An analysis of traveling microbursts in unidirectionally sheared environments is undertaken using a three-dimensional numerical model with 50-m resolution in a 19 × 12 × 4 km domain. For each run, the cooling source is centered at a height of 2 km and travels in an eastward direction of Cm, where Cm = 3, 6, 9, 12, and 15 m s−1. Environmental winds above 2 km are equal to Cm and decay linearly to 0 m s−1 below 2 km. The authors examine the kinetic energy budget of each run, focusing on… CONTINUE READING
