Abstract

A polar air stream cyclogenesis over the wintertime North American continent is documented. The main difference between the land case and oceanic polar lows is that the land cyclone develops in an air mass with negligible water vapor content whereas oceanic ones clearly do not since they are characterized by enhanced cumulus activity during their early stage of development.-from Author
