A kinematical consideration on behavior of a front within a typhoon area

Article

Summary

Considering that a front is a substantial line, the behavior of a pre-existing front is investigated kinematically within a typhoon area in middle latitudes. The wind field of a typhoon is represented by the Rankine combined vortex to determine the deformation and displacement of the pre-existing front from trajectories of each point constituting the front by Petterssen's method of successive approximations. Comparison of the results thus obtained for the cases of typhoons Doris and Winnie, 1966, with those by the surface analysis shows good agreement.

Eine kinematische Betrachtung über das Verhalten einer Front in einem Taifunbereich

Zusammenfassung

Unter der Annahme, daß eine Front eine substantielle Linie ist, wird das Verhalten einer bereits vorhandenen Front, die in einen Taifun-Bereich in mittleren Breiten einbezogen wird, kinematisch untersucht. Das Windfeld eines Taifuns wird durch einen zusammengesetzten Rankine-Wirbel dargestellt, um die Deformation und Verlagerung der bereits vorhandenen Front aus den Trajektorien jedes Punktes der Front nach der Petterssen-Methode der sukzessiven Approximation zu berechnen. Ein Vergleich der Resultate, die auf diese Weise für die Taifune Doris und Winnie (1966) erhalten wurden, mit Ergebnissen von Bodenkarten-Analysen zeigt gute Übereinstimmung.
