Lecture on the Cyclone

Typically, cyclones are represented by using the Norwegian Cyclone model. It is simplistic, but a good way to start when understanding surface lows and cyclones. There are two types of cyclones, tropical/warm core and extratropical/cold core. Extratropical cyclones are characterized by having differing air masses frontal movements where tropical cyclones do not. We will concern ourselves with extratropical cyclones in this presentation.
