The spectrum of transient heat flux in the midlatitude troposphere has a maximum at a synoptic scale. The same is true of the transient energy. The wavenumber of these maxima can be explained by the theory of nonlinear baroclinic adjustment, which is also shown to predict the shape of the...
To understand mechanisms responsible for the onset of atmospheric blocks, the authors study model blocks that form in a two-layer isentropic primitive equation model. The latter includes diabatic heating, parameterized as a Newtonian relaxation of the actual interface toward an equilibrium...
A climatology of the middle atmosphere is determined from 11-yr integrations of the U.K. Meteorological Office Unified Model and compared with 18 years of satellite observations and 5 years of data assimilation fields. The model has an upper boundary at 0.1 mb, and above 20 mb uses Rayleigh...
The large-scale circulation anomalies associated with the 1988 drought and the 1993 floods are investigated with the National Centers for Environmental Prediction Reanalysis data and a linear stationary wave model. The transient vorticity and thermal forcings are explicitly calculated and the...
Shipboard radar data collected during the Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere Coupled Ocean–Atmosphere Response Experiment (TOGA COARE) are used in conjunction with surface meteorological data from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute’s IMET buoy to describe in detail how three classifications...
The shallow-water model is used as a testbench for understanding many fundamental dynamical problems (e.g. certain wave–mean interaction problems). One sometimes wants to allow large-amplitude gravity waves to propagate significant distances in such models without forming shocks. This paper...
Two-dimensional cloud-resolving modeling of tropical cloud systems was performed for a 39-day period (5 December 1992 through 12 January 1993) during the Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere (TOGA) Coupled Ocean–Atmosphere Response Experiment (COARE). This period contains strong convective episodes...
