Surface wind fields (on Earth)


This document sets out to clarify the role of fronts and other atmospheric features on the form of surface wind fields. This is intended as a basic meteorological review of the typical features we will encounter in wind fields. Thus there is a strong emphasis on description at a fairly rudimentary level. The document should prove useful as we think about different models we could adopt for wind fields.
