Could you give me some basic understanding of how to analyze the atmospheric vertical motion? For example, could you list some basic metrics to diagnose the vertical motion? Like divergence, vertical velocity (Omega). I got these two proxies from the published papers. Are there other common metrics to analyze vertical motion? I am a hydrological guy and have not so much meteorological background.
Thank you so much.
BTW, I am sorry for my too general question, but I just wanna some common metrics to do vertical motion analysis. My research focus on extreme precipitation.
