Description :
The purpose of this paper is to utilize a simplified numerical model to study the flow past an ocean island during a cold air outbreak over the Kuroshio Current. The flow feature of interest is the atmospheric vortex street, which was visible in the stratocumulus clouds in the well-mixed planetary boundary layer downstream of the mountain island of Cheju-do, Republic of Korea, on February 17, 1975.
