ACE-1: Model Trajectories, Back BoM GASP (C130) divergence rates and subs. velocities (Siems)


Divergence rates and subsidence velocities were calculated for times during ACE-1 when the C-130 was flying cirles in the boundary layer. These were calculated by simply following the actual subsidence/ascent on numerical (GASP/HYSPLIT) trajectories. These values agree well with the synoptic meteorology.
