The article responds to comments on the article "Contraction rate and its relationship to frontogenesis, the Lyapunov exponent, fluid trapping and airstream boundaries," which appeared in a 2006 issue of the periodical. A representation of the time dependence of the separation in two dimensions between the two fluid parcels is presented.

    Recent research has used enstrophy-based diagnostics to identify the development and dissipation stages of blocking events. These previous studies made use of reanalysis data sets in the calculations of the enstrophy-based diagnostics, such as the NCEP-NCAR reanalysis (2.5° x 2.5°) of...

    A spurious updraft pattern has been documented in some numerical simulations of squall lines. The pattern is notable because of a regular, repeating pattern of updrafts and downdrafts that are three–six grid lengths wide. This study examines the environmental and numerical conditions that...

    Cold fronts are a primary feature of the day-to-day variability of weather in the midlatitudes, and feature in conceptual extratropical cyclone models alongside the dry intrusion airstream. Here the climatological frequency and spatial distribution of the co-occurrence of these two features are...
