ATOC 4720: class 6: Winds and precipitation

  • 1. Winds

  • Scales of motions

  • Longitudinally averaged zonal winds

  • Tropospheric winds at different latitudes

  • 2. Precipitation


Class 5 the temperature distribution and its measurement

Class 5: The temperature distribution and its measurement

Sharp drop

In water

80% mass

All water

(homo or heter?)


1 winds in the earth s atmosphere

1. Winds in the earth’s atmosphere

  • Spatial scales of motion:

  • (1) Planetary-scale;

  • (2) Synoptic-scale (~a few hundreds of km);

  • (3) Meso-scale (a few tens of KM~hundreds km);

  • (4) Small-scale (< a few 10km).
