Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images acquired by the European Remote Sensing satellites ERS-1 and ERS-2 over the east coast of Taiwan around 10:30 local time often show frontal features that are located typically 50 km off the coast. We show that they are not sea surface manifestations of a land breeze front, but of a quasi-stationary atmospheric front that persists over the whole day or even over the next day(s). Evidence for this interpretation is obtained mainly from the comparison of the… CONTINUE READING
