Given the lack of other moisture sources, it is likely that radiative fog formed along the Ocreza River located in the northwest end of the valley was advected into the valley along the pathways in Fig.
This forms a strong northwest barometric gradient that advects continental polar air.
At the same time, winds from a more westerly component, which can advect moisture more easily into the Interior of Alaska, have been reduced.
the turbulence) measured at one point in space as a frozen spatial pattern advected past that point at the locally-measured mean flow velocity:
For the past six weeks we have seen the monotonous repetition of a synoptic pattern that advects cold air from very far south, push it up the Mozambican channel where it meets its northern neighbour, the low pressure area over the western Indian Ocean, collects vast amounts of moisture, and conveys this back over the continent in a wide arch all the way from Mozambique, across Zambia and the DRC into Angola.
These are the Pacific storm track (i), which advects cyclones towards Alaska from the southwest; the Alberta (ii) and the Colorado (iii) storm tracks, which bring systems from the lee of the Rocky Mountains to eastern Canada and northward into the eastern Archipelago; and the Eastern United States track (iv), which advects storms from the eastern seaboard to the northeast around the eastern shores of Greenland.
(1999) showed that, equatorward of the Grand Banks, the deep western boundary current (DWBC) appears weaker when it advects a larger fraction of LSW.
As the airmass above southern Africa rotates anti-clockwise, it advects moisture across Namibia but from the north east, i.e.
The LCB measurement strategy using the current scan geometry and lidar capabilities is well suited to capture lower wind speed cases, which allow sampling a feature several times before it advects out of the domain, but this scan geometry is not suited to high wind speed cases, where a feature may advect out of the domain before it is properly sampled.
This system with its cyclonic circulation, advects deep layers of moist air from the Indian Ocean, across the continent, up to the Congo and Angola airspace.
NCAR also deploys a 9-km implementation of WRF-Solar for the 6-h time frame as well as the Multi-Sensor Advective Diffusive foreCast (MADCast) system, which assimilates infrared irradiances from multiple satellite instruments and advects those derived clouds with the dynamic core of WRF (Auligne 2014a,b).
Friday morning will be cool but this will rapidly turn warmer as the system that advects the colder air passes to the east.
This advects unusually warm air south so creating intense, deep vortex cores (below 950hPa) while polar air adds to the cold front's identity.
A very strong southerly flow (25-35 m [s.sup.-1]) advects precipitating clouds across the Alps, causing so-called dimmer (dimmed daylight) in the Glarus valley.
