This book presents the expanded versions of invited papers presented at the International Symposium on the Life Cycles of Extratropical Cyclones, held in Bergen, Norway, 27 Junea1 July 1994. It is of particular interest to historians of meteorology, researchers and forecasters. The material can be used for advanced undergraduate and undergraduate meteorology courses, and it represents a useful source of references to extratropical cyclones. The book provides the historical background of extratropical cyclone research and forecasting from the eighteenth to the mid-twentieth century. It also presents extratropical cyclone theory, observations, analysis, diagnosis and prediction.Note that the surface cold front, marking the leading edge of a diffuse 6gradient is overrun by dry-intrusion air with low 6, which gives ... An upper cold 6-frontal zone does not accompany the upper 6, -front here but, rather, lags behind. ... in Section 5. mb 4.2 The Association of High Potential Vorticity with the Dry Intrusion Since the early work of Reed and Danielsen it ...
