Inverted Troughs and Their Associated Precipitation Regimes

Inverted Troughs and Their Associated Precipitation Regimes
1. Describe inverted troughs and their associated precipitating features. 2. Present the results of a composite inverted trough study, based on the differences between inverted troughs that produce precipitation ahead vs. behind the trough. 3. Demonstrate the use of isentropic techniques in diagnosing important inverted trough features. 4. Look at several case studies demonstrating the impact of inverted troughs on precipitation distributions.
