1. Introduction For over three decades the westward-propagating wave disturbances of the lower and middle troposphere over North Africa, known as African easterly waves (AEWs), have been studied by a variety of techniques, including synoptic case studies, composite and spectral techniques, and through output from numerical weather prediction (NWP) models. Currently there is great interest in the weather systems of North Africa, including AEWs, as evidenced by the JET2000 project ( Thorncroft et

1. Introduction Strong low-level mesoscale winds often develop adjacent to steep terrain away from the Tropics. These winds are commonly referred to as barrier jets (e.g., Parish 1982 ; Doyle 1997 ), because the enhanced winds have a significant component in the terrain-parallel direction along the windward slope. Barrier jets are routinely observed in cold air damming events along the East Coast of the United States ( Bell and Bosart 1988 ) as well as around Taiwan ( Li and Chen 1998 ), the

March 1967Richard H. Skaggs107ON THE ASSOCIATION BETWEEN TORNADOES AND 500-MB. INDICATORS OF JET STREAMS RICHARD H. SKAGGS 1Department of Geography, The University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kans.Many studies of tornado-severe local storms outbreaks have called attention to the role of the jet stream. Infact, the jet has become an accepted part of a climatological model for tornado occurrences in the central and southernPlains. This study undertakes to verify this
