摘要

The height tendency is solved from 2 forms of the height tendency equation. One is the classical quasi-geostrophic (QG) form; the other is a modified form identified as the 'extended' height tendency equation. The latter retains the essential components of the QG form but replaces the geostrophic wind where it appears in the equation by the observed wind, adds the effects of diabatic heating (latent heat release), and allows 3 dimensional varying static stability. In this study, the behavior of an intense cyclone is poorly described by the QG form but is realistically represented by the extended form.-from AuthorsDept of Earth & Atmos Sci, Purdue Univ, W Lafayette, IN 47907, USA.
