Geostrophic wind over Cape York Peninsula and pressure jumps around the Gulf of Carpentaria

Abstract

Pressure jumps, almost certainly due to interaction of opposing sea-breeze gravity currents, are very common in the nocturnal atmosphere of western Cape York Peninsula and the Gulf of Carpentaria in October. Most come from the east-northeast, the direction of the eastern coast of the Peninsula, and they apparently occur on well over 70 % of days in some part of the morning glory zone. These days are those relatively unaffected by synoptic-scale disturbances. (JPB).
