The Dynamic State Index is a scalar quantity designed to identify atmospheric developments such as fronts, hurricanes or specific weather pattern. The DSI is defined as Jacobian-determinant of three constitutive quantities that characterize three-dimensional fluid flows: the Bernoulli stream function, the potential vorticity (PV) and the potential temperature. Here, we tackle the questions (i) if the mathematical formulation of the DSI can be reduced, while keeping the main information, and (ii…

The dynamic state index with moisture and phase changes

The dynamic state index (DSI) is a scalar field that combines variational information on the total energy and enstrophy of a flow field with the second law of thermodynamics. Its magnitude is a

Scale Dependent Analytical Investigation of the Dynamic State Index Concerning the Quasi-Geostrophic Theory

Abstract The Dynamic State Index (DSI) is a scalar diagnostic field that quantifies local deviations from a steady and adiabatic wind solution and thus indicates non-stationarity aswell as

A generalization of Bernoulli's theorem.

Abstract The conservation of potential vorticity Q can be expressed as ∂(ρQ/∂t + ∇·J = 0, where J denotes the total flux of potential vorticity. It is shown that J is related under statistically

Scale-dependent analyses of precipitation forecasts and cloud properties using the Dynamic State Index

The objective of this study is a scale-dependent analysis of precipitation forecasts of the German Weather Service’s (DWD) non-hydrostatic Lokal-Modell (LM, COSMO-DE) with regard to

Storm tracks and cyclone development using the theoretical concept of the Dynamic State Index (DSI)

The Dynamic State Index (DSI) basing on the Energy-Vorticity Theory is able to detect all non-stationary and diabatic processes in the atmosphere. It is shown for the first time that the index is

Energy–Vorticity Theory of Ideal Fluid Mechanics

Abstract Nambu field theory, originated by Nevir and Blender for incompressible flows, is generalized to establish a unified energy–vorticity theory of ideal fluid mechanics. Using this approach, the

Ertel's vorticity theorems, the particle relabelling symmetry and the energy-vorticity theory of fluid mechanics

The various vorticity theorems of ERTEL are related to a unique symmetry in the substantial or Lagrangian description of fluid mechanics. According to NOETHER'S theorem, this is the particle
