Homework Help: Meteorology

Posted by Mike on Wednesday, October 10, 2007 at 2:26am.

Posted a couple of days ago on this subject.

The wind blows anti-clockwise round a depression (N Hemisphere). In a stereotypical depression isobars form fairly regular circles round the centre of the depression with kinks at the warm and cold fronts with the isobars in the warm sector generally straight.

Generally the most prevalent forces are the pressure gradient and the Coriolis Effect. I understand the kinks at the fronts are due to thermal disturbances along the fronts (Warm & Cold air mixing) but fail to understand why the isobars in the warm sector are straight. The warm sector seems to be oblivious to the forces acting on the rest of the depression!

I am sure someone can help me in this matter.

Thank you

Mike
