    • How does latent cooling affect baroclinic development in an idealized framework? 

      Haualand, Kristine Flacké; Spengler, Thomas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Latent cooling by evaporating or melting hydrometeors has recently been shown to contribute to the positive low-level potential vorticity (PV) anomaly below the layer of latent heating in midlatitude cyclones. While the ...

    • IsoTrotter: Visually Guided Empirical Modelling of Atmospheric Convection 

      Palenik, Juraj; Spengler, Thomas; Hauser, Helwig (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Empirical models, fitted to data from observations, are often used in natural sciences to describe physical behaviour and support discoveries. However, with more complex models, the regression of parameters quickly becomes ...
    • A New Look at Deformation as a Diagnostic for Large-Scale Flow 

      Spensberger, Clemens; Spengler, Thomas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-11)
      Deformation plays a key role in atmospheric dynamics because it provides a dynamical measure of the interaction between different scales, such as in frontogenesis. A climatology of deformation constructed from Interim ECMWF ...
