marine air invasion of the Pacific Coast a problem analysis

marine air invasion of the Pacific Coast a problem analysis This paper reviews the literature on the main aspects of marine air invasion on the Pacific coast. In particular, it considers the sea breeze, Pacific coast monsoon, and airflow over coastal mountains. The major problems associated with marine air invasion are: 1) the relationship of microscale convection, waves, and banded convection- waves to the sea-breeze energetics and sea-breeze front, 2) the interaction of energy forming and dissipating processes from the general circulation down to the micrometeorological scale, 3) the climatology and dynamics of the monsoon, and 4) the mechanism of the lee waves observed in the lee of the heated coastal mountains. Lee waves often form in a statically unstable atmosphere. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society American Meteorological Society

Abstract

This paper reviews the literature on the main aspects of marine air invasion on the Pacific coast. In particular, it considers the sea breeze, Pacific coast monsoon, and airflow over coastal mountains. The major problems associated with marine air invasion are: 1) the relationship of microscale convection, waves, and banded convection- waves to the sea-breeze energetics and sea-breeze front, 2) the interaction of energy forming and dissipating processes from the general circulation down to the micrometeorological scale, 3) the climatology and dynamics of the monsoon, and 4) the mechanism of the lee waves observed in the lee of the heated coastal mountains. Lee waves often form in a statically unstable atmosphere.
