Abstract : This article analyzes the frontogenesis processes associated with one instance of Meiyu front. In conjunction with this, use is made of frontogenesis functions and temperature balance equations. Discussions are made of factors influencing Meiyu front formation and maintenance. Results clearly show that sensible heating is the main factor causing the Yangtze-Huai river valley lower layer frontal area to disappear and latent heating as well as deformations associated with horizontal motion are the main factors associated with maintaining the existence of Meiyu fronts.
