Abstract Temperature patterns of a small lake in the Canadian Shield are examined by means of thermal imagery. The effect of the different surface temperatures on the daytime energy balance is examined for two points over the lake at the time the thermal imagery was taken. For 14 June 1979, two...
Abstract The meteorological visual range Vm and the perception visual range Vp have been measured for a variety of horizon sky backgrounds and atmospheric extinction conditions. Comparison with the standard visibility Vn shows that in general Vp > Vm > Vn . Model calculations of Vp, Vm and Vn...
Abstract Analysis of visual images of the offshore ice margin of the Labrador Coast, taken on four consecutive days from the NOAA‐5 satellite, reveals horizontal oscillations with a mean wavelength of 75 km and amplitude of 15 km. The oscillations travel downstream, with the Labrador Current, at...
Abstract Baroclinic instability of zonal flows with different latitudinal structures is examined, using a linear, quasi‐geostrophic two‐level ß‐plane model. The flows have different amounts of skew, with respect to the channel centre, at different vertical levels. The results are interpreted in...
Abstract The effects of beam smoothing and post‐detection integration on radar measurements of reflectivity and meteorological quantities are re‐examined for a simple but general model of space variability of reflectivity. The radar equation is derived for the variable field of reflectivity...
