Examination of Gravity Waves Associated with the 13 March 2003 Bow Echo

Numerical simulations of the 13 March 2003 bow echo over Oklahoma are used to evaluate bow echo development and its relationship with gravity wave generation. Multiple fast-moving (with speeds of 30–35ms) gravitywaves are generated in associationwith fluctuations in the first vertical mode of heating in the convective line. The surface impacts of four such… (More)
