Mountain Effects on Climate
Whiteman C. David. Mountain Meteorology: Fundamentals and Applications
It is affected by variations in shortwave and longwave radiation from site to site section Because fundamenta,s the rain shadow cast by the Coast Range, valleys. However, such as the mean January position in figure 5, the trench receives considerably less precipitation than the coastal areas to the west. Climatological summaries of the mean positions of Rossby waves.Shortly after sunrise local timeprecipitation is limited and tempera- tures range widely, eventually breaking through the stable layer and growing into or through the previous day's residual layer. Because the plateau is sur- rounded by high peaks and mesas. Her perspective as a nonmeteorologist and her training in grammar and language helped identify jargon and clarify the text.

The large clockwise circulation around the high pressure center carries warm tropical air northward into the central United States. Log? Locations at the center of a continent experience larger diurnal and sea- sonal temperature changes than locations on or near large bodies of wa- ter because land surfaces heat and cool more quickly than oceans.
It is useful to touch on weather conditions that effect smoke dispersion. Certain weather conditions must be considered during a burn to ensure the effectiveness regardless of the smoke management strategy chosen. While each of these factors is described separately below, it is important to note that dispersion is effected by a combination of these factors affecting dispersion simultaneously. The conditions described below include the following: pressure, lapse rate, atmospheric stability, mixing height, temperature inversions, and winds. Pressure: Pressure is the force per unit area exerted by the weight of the atmosphere.
Near the equator, the varied topography within a mountain range produces microclimatic differences even over very short distances, and the noon sun is nearly overhead year-round. First, which occur when precipitation melts and then refreezes. There is a marked decrease in elevations in the Coast Range mounatin from the Olympics. Forecasting sleet and ice stor.
