The Lagrangian analysis tool LAGRANTO - version 2.0

  title={The Lagrangian analysis tool LAGRANTO - version 2.0},
  author={Michael Sprenger and Heini Wernli},
Lagrangian trajectories are widely used in the atmospheric sciences, for instance to identify flow structures in extratropical cyclones (e.g., warm conveyor belts) and long-range transport pathways of moisture and trace substances. Here a new version of the Lagrangian analysis tool LAGRANTO (Wernli and Davies, 1997) is introduced, which offers considerably enhanced functionalities. Trajec5 tory starting positions can be defined easily and flexibly based on different geometrical and/or… CONTINUE READING
