Abstract:

Seven different synoptic situations in the United States have been analyzed, particularly with a view to obtaining detailed descriptions of vertical structures and evolutionary aspects of cloud systems associated with extratropical cyclones. Substantial differences were found amongst the storms investigated and agreement with the cloud structures of the classical cyclone models was generally poor. Attempts at generalizing the results of the analyses into model structures proved unprofitable on account of large variability within the relatively small sample of cases. The present paper, therefore, describes each case as an individual occurrence. Author
