Sauer, Erika Lauren. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1995-12);Quantitative predictions of surface extratropical cyclone development are correlated to the degree of upper-level forcing from 500 mb vorticity advection and 300 mb divergence. Although it is difficult to obtain an accurate ...
