Conceptual Models of Mesoscale Convective Systems

Definition •A mesoscale convective system (MCS) is generally defined as an organized ensemble of convective elements, whose lifecycle is longer than that of the individual convective elements.


107 Chapter 7 CONVECTIVE WINDS Winds of local origin—convective winds caused by local temperature differences—can be as important in fire behavior as the winds produced by the synoptic-scale pressure pattern.
