How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
The Unidata Program Center (UPC) worked with the Unidata Users Committee to organize triennial summer workshops on topics of interest to the Unidata community. The 2012 workshop theme, entitled 'navigating Earth system science data', was designed in part to address a two-pronged challenge. The challenge involve how could Unidata best serve the data...
Composite structures of African easterly waves (AEWs) that develop into named tropical cyclones in the Atlantic are compared and contrasted with nondeveloping AEWs using the 40-yr ECMWF Re-Analysis (ERA-40) data and satellite brightness temperature between 1979 and 2001. Developing AEWs are characterized by a more distinctive cold-core structure tw...
In the wake of the eastern United States cyclone of 12-14 March 1993, a cold surge, originating over Alaska and western Canada, brought northerlies exceeding 20 m s21 and temperature decreases up to 158C over 24 h into Mexico and Central America. This paper addresses the multiscale aspects of the surge from the planetary scale to the mesoscale, foc...
The results of a multiscale analysis of the 12-14 March 1993 superstorm (SS93) over eastern North America are presented. A time sequence of overlapping 10-day time-mean 500-hPa geopotential height and anomaly composites shows that the Northern Hemisphere (NH) flow pattern from 18 February to 15 March 1993 is characterized by 1) three persistent tro...
On 9 June 1993, a squall line passed over the National Severe Storms Laboratory Cimarron radar and polarimetric data of this event were recorded. The line produced heavy rain and at one time was oriented north-south, extending over the radar site. At that time intense rainfall occurred over the radar. Polarimetric radar data from this event are exa...
