Mesoscale Convective Complex (MCC)

Science / Weather / Mesoscale Convective Complex (MCC): A large mesoscale convective system (MCS) which is about the size of the state of Ohio or Iowa and lasts at least 6 hours. Generally forming during the afternoon and evening, the complex normally reaches its peak intensity at night when heavy rainfall and flooding become the primary threat. Severe weather may occur at anytime.

Mesoscale Convective System (MCS)

Science / Weather / Mesoscale Convective System (MCS): A large organized convective weather system comprised of a number of individual thunderstorms. It normally persists for several hours and may be rounded or linear in shape. This term is often used to MORE

Low Spin Complex

Science / Chemistry / Low Spin Complex: A metal-ligand complex with fewer unpaired electrons than the uncomplexed metal ion. When a strong ligand complexes the metal ion, the crystal field splitting is large and some electrons pair rather t MORE

High Spin Complex

Science / Chemistry / High Spin Complex: A metal-ligand complex with the same number of unpaired electrons as the uncomplexed metal ion. When a weak ligand complexes the metal ion, the crystal field splitting is small and the electrons can s MORE
