High Amplitude VS Low Amplitude waves
      #47851 - Sat Aug 13 2005 06:06 PM

Please explain the definitions and consequences for potential developement of the High and Low amplitude waves as they cross the atlantic. It seems the high amplitude waves have more potential while the low amplitude waves stay lower in the ITZ and have less likelyhood to develop. Am I even close on this?
Thanks,
Hurric

In general, high amplitude waves take up a larger expanse latitudinally, but also tend to have sharper curvature associated with them. This can lead to them have a better focal point for something to form along them, but this isn't always the case. Low amplitude waves aren't as large north-south and generally don't have as much curvature...generally not as likely to form, but not also a given.
