    • A cold pool perturbation scheme to improve convective initiation in convection‐permitting models 

      Hirt, MirjamORCIDiD; Craig, George C.ORCIDiD (Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society, 2021-05-04)
      Cold pools originate from evaporation in precipitating downdraughts and spread as density currents at the surface. Vertical motion at the leading edge of the cold pool is an important trigger for new convective cells in ...
    • Effective buoyancy and CAPE: Some implications for tropical cyclones 

      Smith, R. K.ORCIDiD; Montgomery, M. T.ORCIDiD (Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society, 2022-06-01)
      We review the widely used concepts of “buoyancy” and “convective available potential energy” (CAPE) in relation to deep convection in tropical cyclones and discuss their limitations. A fact easily forgotten in applying ...
