Williams (1993) suggested that boundary fluctuation of the hyporheic/groundwater interface was probably the direct result of variation in the upward force of base flow and the downward force of advecting channel water.
We are saying that the [Milky Way's black hole] is dim because it's advecting," says Narayan.
Cold outbreaks and frost risk in SWWA are often associated with a positive MSLP anomaly over the Indian Ocean west of Australia and a negative MSLP anomaly across southern and southeastern Australia, advecting cold air from the south of Australia over SWWA (Ashcroft et al.
It is only once the high pressure cell behind it makes landfall, that the airflow swings around advecting very cold air from far south across the entire country.
In addition, some authors have investigated the processes related to the growth of the SST error in several CMIP5 decadal hindcasts over the south tropical Atlantic, concluding that, in particular, for HadCM3 the ocean integrates the anomalous deep thermocline without advecting the excess of heat content out (Toniazzo and Woolnough 2013).
Tilting fluctuation of isotherms originating from the tidal and wind motion of surface waters should induce a gentle upwelling into the shallows of the southern plain (El Remate) advecting the anoxic and hydrogen sulfide-rich bottom layer, where shellfish banks ate located (Felix-Pico 1987).
It clarified the fact that the barotropic models were not just advecting wave patterns but were able to modulate these waves in a nontrivial way (Persson 2005).
Occasional showers spread also to the south as the upper level vortex formed advecting a band of moist air into its circulation, providing energy which helped trigger its departure: A trite unusual for the time of year, but with some support from the equally valuable and active anticyclonic cores proceeding along their more southerly tracks between some 38 and 45oS.
Satellite studies indicate clouds are thicker, and the cloud deck is larger, when smoke is present overhead, consistent with a response to a more stable atmosphere, but the meteorology encouraging the smoke outflows may also be advecting warmer air above the cloud top.
As interesting and unusual as all this may be, the other factor which evolved emphasized the ready ability for a moderately favourable pattern (throughout the lower and middle layers) to become overtly active in advecting moist air into and across Namibia.
A slow anti-cyclonic circulation over southern Angola lead to north-westerly winds over the north western third of Namibia, advecting some moisture ahead of a trough that was then still over the Atlantic.
