The article comments on the research "Contraction rate and its relationship to frontogenesis, the Lyapunov exponent, fluid trapping, and airstream boundaries," which appeared in the September 2006 issue of the periodical. It criticizes the concept for kinematic diagnosis which was presented in the research. It discusses the change associated with the orientation of the separation vector.
