Static stability and vertical velocity: from planetary to small scale

Article English OPEN

General relations between static stability and aspect ratio and for the “convection/advection ratio” are obtained by use of scale analysis. These relations extend known relations, and are applied to the planetary, synoptic, meso- and small scales.DOI: 10.1111/j.1600-0870.1988.tb00353.x
