Quantifying moisture perturbations leading to stacked lenticular clouds

Abstract

The origin of horizontal striations in lenticular clouds was qualitatively described by Richard Scorer as being due to a vertically layered moisture field, although the magnitude of the required moisture perturbations has not previously been quantified. Sensitivity tests using high-resolution numerical simulations of these clouds are used here to confirm… (More)
