Climatological Radar Delineation of Urban Convection for Atlanta, Georgia
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2010)
The distribution of warm season (June through August) thunderstorm activity surrounding Atlanta, Georgia from 1997 to 2006 was determined utilizing composite reflectivity data obtained from the network of National Weather ...
A 15-year climatology of derecho producing mesoscale convective systems over the Central and Eastern United States
(Inter Research Science Center, 2003-07)
A 15 yr (1986–2000) climatology of derecho-producing mesoscale convective systems (DMCSs) is presented in order to better delineate their spatial and temporal patterns. Several significant results emerged from the analysis, ...
On the episodic nature of derecho-producing convective systems in the United States
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2005)
Convectively generated windstorms occur over broad temporal and spatial scales; however, one of the larger-scale and most intense of these windstorms has been given the name ‘derecho’. This study illustrates the tendency ...
