Small scale topography influence on the formation of three convective systems observed during COPS over the Vosges Mountains

Abstract:

Numerical modelling of the airflow and precipitating convective systems are performed to better understand the role of topography for the triggering of convection over a moderate mountain region during the Convective and Orographically induced Precipitation Study (COPS) campaign. A non-hydrostatic cloud scale model with two nested domains is used which permits to zoom from the mesoscale environment of south-western Germany/eastern France, into the Vosges Mountains and finally into the small-t...
