An Observational Study Of Mesoscale Convective Systems

5 hours ago Abstract A heavy rainfall event induced by mesoscale convective systems (MCSs) occurred over the middle Korean Peninsula from 25 to 27 July 1996. This heavy rainfall caused a large loss of life and property damage as a result of flash floods and landslides. An observational study was conducted using Weather Surveillance Radar-1988 Doppler (WSR …

2 hours ago Mesoscale convective systems (MCSs) are impor- tant links between convection and the large scale atmospheric circulation. MCS is deBned as an ensemble of thunderstorms that produces a con- tiguous precipitation area of around 100 km or more in at least one direction (Houze 2004). These systems are characterized by regions of both con-

4 hours ago This major convective system subsequently travelled across Mali, leaving a swath of wet soil several hundred kilometres across and over 1000 km long. Within this large-scale storm path, many fine scale cool (wet) surface features are evident in Figure 1b , consistent with the convection which was tracked from thermal imagery during the storm.

6 hours ago [1] Mesoscale convective systems (MCSs) have regions of both convective and stratiform precipitation, and they develop mesoscale circulations as they mature. The upward motion takes the form of a deep-layer ascent drawn into the MCS in response to the latent heating and cooling in the convective region.

7 hours ago Jirak and Cotton (2007, hereafter JC07) proposed a new index to assist in forecasting the development of mesoscale convective systems (MCSs). This ‘‘MCS in- dex’’ is the summation of three components that are a function of the 1) ‘‘best’’ lifted index (LI), 2) 0–3-km shear vector magnitude (SVM), and 3) 700-hPa tem- perature advection (TAdv).

2 hours ago In this study, electric field (E) soundings through convective regions of mesoscale convective systems (MCSs) are examined. The data show a typical electrical structure exists in this region. The basic E profile in MCS convective region updrafts has three E peaks: a positive peak near 5 km height, a negative peak near 8 km, and a positive peak near 11 km. There are also …

7 hours ago The mesoscale analysis demonstrates a complex convective system with a V-shape in the Infrared (IR) satellite imagery and a squall line pattern on the radar imagery. Ground stations observed up to 60 mm h − 1 of rain accumulation, while the lightning activity, as observed by 4 detection networks, was also exceptionally high.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a mesoscale convective system?

[1] Mesoscale convective systems (MCSs) have regions of both convective and stratiform precipitation, and they develop mesoscale circulations as they mature. The upward motion takes the form of a deep-layer ascent drawn into the MCS in response to the latent heating and cooling in the convective region.

Can we model convection and cloud microphysics on the grid scale?

The model parameterized convection and cloud microphysics on the grid scale and resolved very large cloud clusters. Despite the coarse resolution, mesoscale convective systems formed in the model and exhibited realistic features such as the curved region of convective ascent and the mesoscale rear inflow under a broad anvil (Figure 10).

How are mesoscale convective systems tracked in toga coare?

Mesoscale convective systems in TOGA COARE as tracked in satellite infrared data. Results are displayed in time-longitude space for 11–17 December 1992. Sizes of each oval are proportional to the sizes of the actual MCS image at a given instant. Arrows point out locations of research aircraft missions on 12–15 December.

How does the mcs move in a convective environment?

Being carried along by the wind would be expected in a simple convective environment. In con- trast, the MCS leading-line and trailing-stratiform radar echo were deep and widespread, typical of an organized mesoscale system. The MCS moved toward the south or southeast, essentially across the predominately zonal envi- ronmental flow.
