Unformatted text preview: 1. Where it says “slower than geostrophic”, curvature is generating cyclonic (positive) vorticity; combine with divergence = a surface low pressure located under the word “divergence” 2. Where it says “faster than geostrophic, curvature is generating anticyclonic (negative) vorticity; combine this with convergence = a surface high pressure located under the word “convergence”. 2 3...
