Remind you of the satellite presentation of Mesoscale Convective Vortices (MCVs)
Give hints on how to anticipate MCV genesis/decay
Discuss model performance of MCVs
MCV Information, Life Cycle and climatology
What do MCVs look like in IR and visible imagery?
3 case studies: July 6, July 21, Aug 18-19 (all 2003)
