Simulation of mesoscale structure of thunderstorm using ARPS Model
Keywords:Thunderstorm, Up drafts and down drafts, ARPS model
In this paper mesoscale structures of two thunderstorm events over Delhi have been simulated using ARPS (Advanced Regional Prediction System) model. Numerical experiments were carried out using radiosonde data of Delhi and applying a potential temperature perturbation for triggering convective activity. The simulation exercise demonstrates strong updrafts and downdrafts associated with the thunderstorm cells, indicating the presence of very strong localized convection. The development and evolution of thunderstorm and propagation of associated precipitation zone are clearly brought out in this simulation study.
