Abstract Time plots of average concentration values from the Thorney Island field experiments were used to draw cloud outlines. After the initial slumping, and a more or less pronounced formation of a vortex ring, redistribution of mass took place. At later stages the highest concentrations were found to be well inside the cloud. The wind speed increment with height shears the cloud in the wind direction and creates a high front and a low trailing edge. Distances to specific concentration… CONTINUE READING
