The climatology of dew points and fire weather related parameters in the Missouri-Arkansas region by Melissa D Chesser ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Forecasting fire weather in the Springfield, Missouri and Little Rock, Arkansas Weather Forecast Offices (SGF and LZK WFO, respectively) across the greater Missouri and Arkansas regions (MoArk) county warning areas has been described as a challenge for wildfire managers. It is known that wildfire managers rely on their local WFO to provide fire weather forecast that are vital in the decision making process for wildfire suppression and prescribe fire management. Many climatic factors that affect fire hazards, including soil moisture, synoptic conditions, dewpoint, temperature and wind are indirectly impacted by ENSO. The climatology of dewpoint, temperature, Palmer Index, and synoptic conditions of fire weather flow regimes are presented here using the synoptic station observation network covering the MoArk region. A statistical analysis was performed in order to find useful interannual variability in the climatology of dew points and fire weather related parameters and their relationship to El Niño and La Niña. The data set used here contains monthly average dewpoint temperatures dating back to 1948 for three sites within Missouri: St. Louis, Columbia, and Springfield and one site in Arkansas: Little Rock. Dewpoint rather than relative humidity was chosen for this research because it is a measure of the actual amount of moisture in the air and is useful for seasonal fire weather
Climatology of atmospheric blocking 1978-2008 global and hemispheric breakdown, as well as impacts of temperature, and global climate cycles by Shawn Patrick Riley ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An examination of atmospheric blocking from the years 1978-2008 was conducted to explore the impacts of temperature and climate cycles on blocking intensity, blocking duration, and total blocking events on an annual basis. The data was analyzed and against global average temperature, ENSO and PDO for each year in the study in both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. Though the course of the analyses it was found that Northern Hemispheric blocking intensity and duration were connected to the temperatures as was predicted by Lupo (1997). The annual total blocking events were found to be correlated at a significant level to the PDO. This was shown the clearest in the Southern Hemisphere, because in the Northern Hemisphere the correlation is clouded by the increase in the number of observations from the area around Siberia. The connection to the PDO, which is still a relatively new phenomena in meteorology need additional study. The connection between blocking and the PDO can have wide impacts in forecasting
Scale and stability analysis of selected atmospheric blocking events by Husain Athar ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Global six year climatology of mid latitude atmospheric blocking events, during the period 1999-2004, is presented based on the scale and stability analysis, using the NCEP/NCAR re-analysis data. A total of 278 blocking events over the Northern as well as the Southern Hemispheres are analyzed. It is pointed out that globally, over the six year period, 83% of the blocking events have single-scale dominance, whereas remaining 17% of the blocking events have an alternating-scale dominance behavior. In the Northern Hemisphere, during the later half of the six year period, a 28% rise in the planetary-scale dominance behavior blocking events is noticed over the synoptic-scale dominance behavior blocking events. A comparison of the time variability of the three stability indicators over the entire life cycle of the selected blocking events with earlier works performing the synoptic and dynamics studies shows that the three stability indicators can be used as climatologically reliable stability indicators giving useful insight into the stability of the flow attending the blocking event. It is noticed that in the scale dependent flow, the scale that dominates during the mature stage of the blocking event determines the stability of the flow during the blocking, and that the blocking is relatively more stable state than the more frequent zonal flow, irrespective of which scale dominates the flow during blocking
