Common Remarks

The Warm Conveyor Belt is a rising relative stream transporting warm wet air from south-east to northern directions. It is strongly involved in the processes and cloud development connected with fronts. Therefore it has been described in the relevant chapters (see Cold Front , Cold Front In Cold Advection , Cold Front In Warm Advection , Split Front , Arctic Cold Front , Warm Front Band , Warm Front Shield , Detached Warm Front , Occlusion , Instant Occlusion , Occlusion: Cold Conveyor Belt Type , Cold Air Development ).

In this manual the term Warm Conveyor Belt is used somewhat differently, namely, for a typical cloud configuration separated from frontal cloudiness but also produced within a relative stream of a Warm Conveyor Belt.
