Maintenance work is being performed on the UCAR network Saturday June 23rd. Expect brief periods of inaccessibility from 6:30AM to 4:30PM MST.

Vorticity Maxima and Comma Patterns

Vorticity Maxima and Comma Patterns
Vorticity maxima signatures are very common and indicate areas of ascending circulation and atmospheric forcing. The correct placement of vorticity maxima is vital to the placement of related dynamic features such as the axis of maximum winds and deformation zones. This module is part of the series “Dynamic Feature Identification: The Satellite Palette”.
