A numerical model-based analysis of the quasigeostrophic forcing for ascent in the occluded quadrant of three cyclones is presented based upon a natural coordinate partitioning of the Q vector into its alongand acrossisentrope components, Qs and Qn, respectively. The Qn component describes the geostrophic contribution to the rate of change of the magnitude of =pu (traditional frontogenesis), whereas the Qs component describes the geostrophic contribution to the rate of change of direction of… CONTINUE READING
