Abstract The monthly surface heat budget and wind stress are calculated from three‐hourly meteorological data obtained at OWS B from 1946 to 1974 using formulae based on the best available measurements, and are then compared with earlier estimates. The surface heating is compared with the...
Abstract A detailed examination has been made of the relationship between the space and time variations of the Indian summer monsoon rainfall and the equatorial eastern‐Pacific sea surface temperature (SST) anomaly in different seasons for the 108‐year period, 1871–1978. There is a strong...
Abstract It is shown that blocking anticyclones are closely related to positive anomalies of 5‐day mean 500‐mb geopotential height satisfying criteria involving amplitude, latitude and time of year. Anomalies meeting the criteria are called “blocking signatures”. The criteria are used...
Abstract A simple perturbation procedure is developed for incorporating the effects of mean zonal winds in atmospheric tidal calculations. This method is used to determine the variation of the solar semidiurnal surface pressure oscillation, S2(p), that is expected to result from the mean wind...
Abstract The use of short‐term predictions of rain flux from isolated showers is discussed in the context of the design and evaluation of cloud‐seeding experiments. It is found that for a sample of 85 seeded convective clouds a seeding effect of 25% could be detected at the 10% significance level.
Abstract Long‐term observations of the water balance elements were carried out in the Izhora plateau located in northwest Russia. As a result of these investigations, the average recharge of the Leningrad artesian basin located south of the plateau was calculated. The infiltration to the karstic...
Abstract On‐site and off‐site forecasts for the CFB Summerside aerodrome, written coincidentally over a six‐week period, are verified using the Ranked Probability Score and compared by means of a two‐tailed test of paired differences. The results show that, at a 10% level of significance,...
Abstract Fog, cloud, and precipitation caused by the petrochemical plants in Edmonton, Canada, were studied on some of the coldest days of four winters. Typical morning temperatures were between –15 and –40° C. The investigation includes a comprehensive heat and vapour emission inventory, field...
