Abstract

Available potential energy (APE) and kinetic energy (KE) processes for a limited region, containing and moving with an extratropical cyclone system, are discussed. The available potential energy and kinetic energy budgets for an extratropical cyclone over the continental United States during various stages of its life cycle are computed for the period 20-21 March 1962. Baroclinic component of APE based on the specification of a reference state for the limited moving volume is considered. The APE generation values for the case study reported by Vincent, Pant et al. 18 are used in the generation part of the budget. Energy exchange processes including a large amount of probable subgrid to grid-scale interaction are discussed in relation to the behaviour of the cyclone.
