Meteorological effects of the eclipse of 11 August 1999 in cloudy and clear conditions

Abstract:

Integrated atmospheric measurements were made at two sites in the UK during the total solar eclipse of 11 August 1999. Sensitive high-resolution meteorological observations revealed dynamical atmospheric effects despite the presence of cloud. Short-term eclipse-related changes dominated over temperature, wind speed and wind directions associated with the synoptic conditions, and 35 min period gravity waves were detected in surface-pressure observations. Theoretical calculations for solar radi...
