mesoscale

mesoscale

A scale used in meteorology that extends from approximately 0.7 to 70 miles (1 to 100 km). Mesoscale features include such things as thunderstorms, sea breezes, gust fronts, and macrobursts.

In a new study published in November in Nature Climate Change, researchers reported that the volume of rainfall from storms known as mesoscale convective systems--or clusters of thunderstorms that can cross dozens of miles and last for hours--will increase by up to 80 percent across the continent by the end of the century.
When data are obtained from two satellites at different times but at the same location there is significant correlated uncertainty due to ocean geophysical space and time variability that complicates inter-comparison (especially in regions dominated by mesoscale structure) and due to atmospheric/ionospheric space and time variability.
