Stratosphere-troposphere transport in a numerical simulation of midlatitude convection

Article English OPEN
Chagnon, Jeffrey M.; Gray, Suzanne L.;

The transport of stratospheric air deep into the troposphere via convection is\ud investigated numerically using the UK Met Office Unified Model. A convective system\ud that formed on 27 June 2004 near southeast England, in the vicinity an upper level\ud potential vorti... View more
