Advection

Science / Weather / Advection: The horizontal transfer of any property in the atmosphere by the movement of air (wind). Examples include heat and moisture advection.

Negative Vorticity Advection

Science / Weather / Negative Vorticity Advection: The advection of lower values of vorticity into an area. MORE

Cold Advection

Science / Weather / Cold Advection: The horizontal movement of colder air into a location. Contrast with warm advection. MORE

Positive Vorticity Advection

Science / Weather / Positive Vorticity Advection: The advection of higher values of vorticity into an area. It is also known as cyclonic vorticity. MORE

Warm Advection

Science / Weather / Warm Advection: The horizontal movement of warmer air into a location. MORE

Advection Fog

Science / Weather / Advection Fog: Fog that develops when warm moist air moves over a colder surface, cooling that air to below its dew point. MORE

Steam Fog

Science / Weather / Steam Fog: A type of advection fog that is produced by evaporation when cool air passes over a warm wet surface and the fog rises, giving the appearance of steam. Also called sea smoke when it occurs over the oc MORE
