Abstract:

The numerical frontogenesis model of Williams 1973 is modified to include moisture with its subsequent condensation and release of latent heating. The turbulent diffusions of momentum, heat and moisture are represented with various coefficients. The numerical solutions show realistic quasi-steady fronts forming within one to two days. These solutions are examined and compared over a range of the various coefficients, and various ranges of temperature.
