Simulating different convective
The purpose of this lab is to further explore how the vertical
wind shear profile affects the resultant convective mode produced with a 3-D
After receiving instructions on how to use the model:
- Create soundings that you feel will simulate the following. Also, make sure that the
wind profile you create will keep the simulated storm in the center of the
domain. In other words, the simulated storm motion should be 0 m/s.
- Ordinary cell
- symmetric left and right moving supercells
- right moving supercell
- multi-cell squall line
- bow echo
- For each simulation, save the sounding and plot and save
the hodograph. Also save illustrative graphics that show the type of
convective mode produced with the sounding.
