Abstract:

My long-term goal is to contribute to our understanding of the boundary layer on atmospheric fronts. i wish to establish how cold frontal structure and intensity change as a front moves up or down a mountain slope. Various theoretical studies with no boundary layer show that the front weakens on the upwind side and strengthens on the lee side.
