Surface wind fields (on Earth)

Abstract

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.
