The “Triple Point” on 24 May 2002 during IHOP. Part I: Airborne Doppler and LASE Analyses of the Frontal Boundaries and Convection Initiation

  • Roger M. Wakimoto, Hanne V. Murphey
  • Published 2004


An analysis of the initiation of deep convection near the triple point between a cold front and dryline is presented. High-spatial resolution Doppler wind syntheses combined with vertical cross sections of mixing ratio (q) and aerosol scattering ratio retrieved from a lidar flying over the triple point provide an unprecedented view of the initiation process… (More)
