The genesis and evolution of atmospheric fronts can be followed using the QuikSCAT data. A frontal history can be established using the combined surface winds and surface pressure fields from QuikSCAT and adding ancillary data. An attribution technique is used to study the impact of the environmental flow on the development of the fronts.
