Aspects of a rotating shear flow over a mountain ridge

Abstract

The effect of a vertical incident wind shear on rotating airflow over a mountain ridge is discussed physically from a variety of perspectives. The apparent paradox that the shear reduces both the vertical displacement of fluid parcels aloft and the mountain anticyclone is resolved. The importance of meridional displacements in representing the static stability field is also demonstrated. -Author
