Abstract:

The numerical frontogenesis model of Williams is converted to ln p vertical spacing and modified to include a higher upper boundary, tropopause and stratosphere, moisture and variable vertical turbulent diffusion coefficients of momentum and heat. The numerical solutions show more realistic quasi-steady fronts forming within one to two days. These solutions are examined and compared over a range of various boundary value coefficients and various ranges of temperature.
