  • Develop an expectation of the vorticity tendency based on the QG Vorticity Equation
    • 5 canonical MSLP-Thickness configurations
  • Apply expectations to different distributions of any of the variables.
    • Vorticity Tendency to MSLP-Thickness
    • Vorticity Advection to Vorticity Tendency
    • Stretching to Vorticity Tendency
  • Apply to real atmospheric cases.
  • Locate on a vorticity tendency map where precipitation/clouds would be expected.
  • Identify which cases will cause the surface pressure pattern to intensify, weaken, maintain, or only translate.
