Review of Short Phrases and Links

    This Review contains major "Advection"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.


  1. Advection is the transport of a conserved scalar quantity that is transported in a vector field.
  2. Advection is the leading order mechanism by which a fluid transports properties around.
  3. Advection is a major component of air quality models.
  4. Advection is important for the formation of orographic cloud and the precipitation of water from clouds, as part of the hydrological cycle. (Web site)
  5. Advection is sometimes confused with the more encompassing process convection, which encompasses both advective transport and diffusive transport in fluids.

Warm Air Advection

  1. Warm air advection can produce fog if it flows over a cold surface. (Web site)


  1. The advection equation is the partial differential equation that governs the motion of a conserved scalar as it is advected by a known velocity field. (Web site)


  1. The advection equation describes the transport of a conserved scalar ψ in a velocity field. (Web site)


  1. This effect is referred to as advection.


  1. The transfer of energy can take various forms; familiar examples include work, heat flow, and advection, as discussed below.


  1. ADVECTION The horizontal transfer of any property in the atmosphere by the movement of air (wind). (Web site)


  1. Advection is transport in a fluid. (Web site)


  1. Additionally, convection includes fluid movement both by bulk motion (advection) and by the motion of individual particles (diffusion). (Web site)
  2. This heat transfer process is often termed forced convection or occasionally heat advection.

Advection Fog

  1. Advection Fog: Fog which forms in shallow horizontal layers when warm, moist air is cooled from below, usually by passing over cold water.
  2. SEA FOG A type of advection fog which forms in warm moist air cooled to saturation as the air moves across cold water. (Web site)


  1. Advection fog occurs when moist air passes over a cool surface by advection (wind) and is cooled. (Web site)
  2. Advection Fog - Occurs when warm, moist air moves over a cold surface and the air cools to below its dew point.


  1. Advection of higher values of vorticity into an area, which often is associated with upward motion (lifting) of the air.
  2. Natural heattypes of forced heat convection, which refer to heat advection by a fluid which is not due to the natural forces of buoyancy induced by heating.
