Lecture no. 14 from the course: Meteorology: An Introduction to the Wonders of the Weather

Fronts and Extratropical Cyclones

Taught by Professor Robert G. Fovell | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

In this lecture, you encounter some of the most dramatic air-flow patterns found in nature, the swift, turning winds of the cyclone. Trace the lifecycle of the extratropical cyclone, which draws its power from the huge energy generated when different air masses meet.
