    Air Masses and Frontal Transitional Zones: A cold front is the transition zone in the atmosphere where an advancing cold, dry stable air mass displaces a warm, moist unstable subtropical air mass. On a weather map, the cold front is drawn as a solid blue line with triangles. The position of the triangles shows the direction of frontal. -Atmospheric circulation cells are located between the equator and 30 latitude, 30 latitude and 60 latitude, and 60 latitude an the pole. -Horse latitudes: areas of general subsidence in the zone between 20 and -In each hemisphere the equator-ward flow from the horse latitudes forms the reliable *trade winds.

Atmospheric Frontal Dynamics is the first book to present a self-contained and comprehensive coverage of the ubiquitous surface and upper-level fronts, which are boundaries separating two air masses of different densities.

Atmospheric fronts are a product of interaction between planetary, synoptic, meso and small scales of : Mankin Mak. This study explores possible impacts of midlatitude oceanic frontal zones on annular mode signatures in the wintertime Southern Hemisphere (SH). To mimic the SH, sets of idealized aquaplanet experiments are conducted with zonally symmetric distributions of SST prescribed globally at the lower boundary of an atmospheric general circulation by: 5.

Atmospheric effects in the Angola-Benguela frontal zone Article (PDF Available) in Journal of Geophysical Research Atmospheres (C9) September with 21 Reads How we measure.

Satellite observations and modeling studies show that midlatitude SST fronts influence the marine atmospheric boundary layer (MABL) and atmospheric circulation.

Here, the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) mesoscale model is used to explore the atmospheric response to a midlatitude SST front in an idealized, dry, two-dimensional configuration, with a Cited by: 9.

The impacts of SAFZ including both frontal-scale SST and mesoscale ocean eddies on atmospheric circulations worth evaluating in future studies.

In this study, as the first step to compare the different impacts of the two oceanic frontal zones, we separate the STFZ and SAFZ from each other and investigate the atmospheric responses to the fixed STFZ and Cited by: 1. Observational studies have shown that decadal-scale sea surface temperature (SST) variations in the North Pacific are particularly strong along the oceanic subarctic frontal zone (SAFZ; e.g., Nakamura et al.

; Nakamura and Kazmin ).The SST variations along the SAFZ are primarily a result of its latitudinal displacement (Nakamura and Kazmin ), Cited by:   In this paper, an atmospheric investigation of frontal dust storms in southwest Asia is presented.

Atmospheric analysis is done on six severe frontal dust storms which occurred on the Tigris and Euphrates alluvial plain dust sources in non-summer seasons during the last two decades. NCEP-NCAR Reanalysis Data were used for synoptic analysis, and the Cited by: 5.

The probability of air-mass and frontal precipitation occurrence provides crucial information for studies in predictability and modeling.

Ageostrophic Moisture Fluxes Into Frontal Zone and the Role of Boundary Layer Inertial Oscillations Given that the geostrophic winds have little contribution to the net moisture flux into the low‐level frontal zone, we focus on the ageostrophic wind component in this subsection, including moisture fluxes of the ageostrophic winds, and Cited by: 9.

The Atmosphere. The atmospheric circulation in low latitudes corresponds mainly to direct thermal circulations driven by convection over the regions with the highest surface temperatures.

Moisture-bearing trade winds converge onto these regions where the air rises in cumulus towers that provide plentiful rainfall locally. Global satellite sea surface temperature (SST) measurements and NCEP/NCAR reanalysis wind data for the period of – have been used to study the seasonal and interannual variability of the main climatic oceanic frontal zones (OFZ; subpolar, subtropical and equatorial) associated with the large-scale atmospheric by: 3.

Abstract: The Baiu front is a specific front that is analyzed along a large equivalent potential temperature (θ e) gradient region with the strongest convective activities over the Baiu frontal is because convective activities lift high-θ e air flowing into the synoptically produced Baiu frontal zone and consequently a large θ e gradient is produced there.

This review is based on the book “Physical Oceanography of Frontal Zones in the Subarctic Seas” by A.G. Kostianoy, J.C.J. Nihoul and V.B. Rodionov published in Elsevier in October The frontal zone intersected the ocean surface in the region closest to the central low pressure (referred to as the western sector) but remained aloft in the region farther to the east (referred.

Several studies have argued that the location of the summer Arctic frontal zone may be in part determined by discontinuities in energy exchange along the tundra-boreal forest boundary.Journal of Geophysical Research () Partnered Journals.
