These synoptic scale atmospheric conditions are related to a broader pattern that has been stubbornly persistent throughout June and July known as the "Global Wind Oscillation" or GWO.
Moreover we attempted to identify and understand the various mesoscale to synoptic scale system and their interaction for the formation of convective cells which lead to EHRE.
We carried out detailed study of model derived fields to explore the mesocale characters and their possible interaction with synoptic scale features during the event.
Synoptic scale atmospheric circulation in Estonia is described in greater detail in [7], where the classification of the trajectories of the cyclones that influence weather in Estonia can be found.
Most of these synoptic scale systems are affected by topography, resulting in various climates at the basin level.

6 Synoptic Scale Motions I: Quasi-geostrophic Analysis
Isotopic tracing of CO2 and CH4 fluxes between atmosphere, soil and caves over short period cycles (diurnal to synoptic scales, at different seasonal times) will help identify the relationships between the local environment (temperature, rainfall, atmospheric pressure etc) with the abiotic and biotic processes in the atmosphere-soil-karst system.
