MetadataShow full item record
Static stability is investigated as a contribution to numerical baroclinic-zone analysis, developed by Renard and Clarke, and presently being produced on a hemispheric basis by the U.S. Navy at the Fleet Numerical Weather Facility, Monterey, California (FNWF) . Significant - level and mandatory-level data from the North American region at 00Z and 1200Z, 20 August 1965, are utilized in an experiment relating 850, 700, 500, and 300-mb static stabilities and associated parameters to a FNWF front-location parameter proportional to horizontal shear of the thermal wind which is dependent on mandatory level data only.
