About the Special Issue

A Special Issue of International Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (ISSN Online 2640-1150)

Deadline for manuscript submissions: Jul. 30, 2022

Terrain-induced flows on various temporal and spatial scales are of great interest to the global weather forecasting community. Moreover, severe weather hazards in complex terrain regularly impact human society in terms of costs to life and property requiring a continued exploration of such phenomena. Proper diagnoses and understanding of mesoscale terrain-induced convergence zones, local vortices, mesocyclones, and other boundaries are critical in terms of forecasting severe thunderstorms, large hail, catastrophic air turbulence, tornadoes, and extreme precipitation.
Accordingly, in this special issue, we seek research submissions with the goal of several publications on these topics. We will feature two research areas covering these topics. The first area of meteorological research will emphasize multi-scale observational analyses including satellite, soundings, surface mesonet, and radar data. A second focus will be on high resolution nested-grid numerical weather simulations from the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model and other similar models. Hopefully, this work will galvanize future efforts to improve severe weather forecasting in the mountain-valley systems of the world.
