Modification of Precipitation by Coastal Orography in Storms Crossing Northern California

Abstract

This study compiles and interprets three-dimensional Weather Surveillance Radar-1988 Doppler (WSR88D) data during a 2.5-yr period and examines the typical orographic effects on precipitation mainly associated with winter storms passing over coastal northern California. The three-dimensional mean reflectivity patterns show echo structure that was generally… (More)
