Record #165338:

Diagnosis of the katabatic wind influence on the wintertime Antarctic surface wind field from numerical simulations / Thomas R. Parish, John J. Cassano.

Title: Diagnosis of the katabatic wind influence on the wintertime Antarctic surface wind field from numerical simulations / Thomas R. Parish, John J. Cassano.
Author(s): Parish, Thomas R.
Cassano, John J.
Date: 2003.
Abstract: Presents results of two numerical simulations of low-level wind field over Antarctica, with daily numerical simulations for midwinter month July 2001. Analyses of katabatic forcing showed it was significant component of total horizontal pressure gradient force over interior of continent, though near coast and extending several hundred kilometres inland effects of ambient pressure gradient force were typically comparable to katabatic forcing and often considerably more important. This suggests that role of topography in shaping Antarctic boundary layer wind through blocking and subsequent adjustment is critical to establishment of low-level wintertime Antarctic wind field.
