Abstract

The temporal evolution of the frontogenetic forcing of the horizontal gradients of temperature and longfront velocity is discussed for the moist semigeostrophic frontal model of Mak and Bannon where CISK schemes formulated in geostrophic coordinates parameterize the precipitation due to conditional symmetric instability/slantwise convection. -Authors
