Isentropic airflow probability analysis
Date of Original Version
Trajectory analysis has been used to identify possible sources in both short-and long-term atmospheric transport. Here the focus is on the climatological pathway of airflow to the Atmosphere/Ocean Chemistry Experiment sites, determined by superposition of ensembles of isentropic trajectories. The trajectories are prepared from wind fields on surfaces of constant potential temperature interpolated from the National Meteorological Center global analysis, calculated twice daily for each site for the period from 1986 to 1993.
