The Effects of Orography on Convection in the Stavropol Territory

M. D. Atabiev, R. G. Zakinyan, and E. M. Yanyuk

The influence of orography in the Stavropol Territory on convection development is studied. The ascending motions induced by orography, under certain directions of the airflow in the surface layer, are calculated using the technique proposed by Chogovadze. The resulting field of vertical motions is used to determine the distribution of the cloud condensation level over the Stavropol Territory and tendencies of convective cloud development.
