Recent observations of mesoscale structures in intense cyclones

Monday 2nd December 2013 - 11:30 to 12:15
INI Seminar Room 1
The impact of intense cyclones is often associated with coherent mesoscale structures embedded within them. Although the formation of cold fronts is to some extent described by semi-geostrophic theory, the dynamics of many of these features are not well understood. For example, whether they could be described by a form balance appropriate on the mesoscale, or in the presence of non-conservative processes. Some recent detailed observations of cyclones and fronts are presented and some of the unknown aspects of their dynamics highlighted.
