An ALARMS climatology of Gulf of California moisture surges and the associated precipitation, 1993-2004

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This study applies the ALARMS (Assessing Low-Level Atmospheric Moisture using Sounndings) method to 12 years of data from Phoenix, Arizona; Tucson, Arizona; Yuma, Arizona; and Empalme, Mexico, in order to establish a climatology of low-level moisture surges from the Gulf of California and their effects on precipitation. There are 64 events detected using the available data, and data inventories are used to estimate the actual number of events that occurred at each station for every year
