This session invites contributions on all aspects of dynamical meteorology. Particular sub-topics are the dynamics and predictability of mid-latitude, tropical and polar weather systems, dynamical processes at and transport across the extratropical tropopause, orographic flow and theoretical/idealized studies on meteorological phenomena. Particularly welcome are papers related to THORPEX activities on predictability and dynamical processes and results from recent meteorological field campaigns.

Invited speakers:
Geoff Vallis "The Height of the Tropopause and the General Circulation"
Andreas Dörnbrack "The mesoscale structure of a mature polar low: Simulations and airborne measurements"
