The Dynamics of Ascent-Forced Orographic Convection in the Tropics: Results from Dominica*

Abstract

Themountainous Caribbean island of Dominica was chosen as a natural laboratory for studying orographic convection in the tropics. Here, the authors focus on a prototypical case study, taken from the Dominica Experiment (DOMEX) field campaign in the spring of 2011. Airborne measurements and high-resolution numerical experiments are used to examine the… (More)
