Wave development over Eastern Europe

Published: 02 July 2004

This case study addresses the development of two waves within a frontal system over Central and East Europe. Waves are substructures of a cold front which indicates the initial stage of (secondary) cyclogenesis.

For this investigation two different waves will be analyzed using single satellite images as well as combined channel products. Moreover conceptual models which base on a certain selection of numerical parameters will be introduced. Based on the development of the two different wave systems, the quality of the background information (satellite imagery, NWP-field) can be assessed.
