Description

The Mesoscale Convective Systems (MCSs) Campaign is underway at the SGL CART site and will continue through September 1999. This field study is investigating the small-scale physics of precipitation and the convective dynamics of MCSs in the middle latitudes. An MCS is defined as a precipitation system that is 10--300 miles wide and contains deep convection at some time in its life span. MCSs occur in the midlatitudes of the US and can include large, isolated thunderstorms, squall lines, and mesoscale convective complexes.
