An analytical model is developed to predict the surface drag exerted by internal gravity waves on an isolated axisymmetric mountain over which there is a stratified flow with a velocity profile that varies relatively slowly with height. The model is linear with respect to the perturbations...
An optimal perturbation is an initial condition that optimizes some measure of amplitude growth over a prescribed time in a linear system. Previous studies have argued that optimal perturbations play an important role in turbulence. Two basic questions related to this theory are whether optimal...
The probability density function (PDF) and spatial statistics of both the energy dissipation rate ϵ and the temperature structure constant C 2 T are determined for the shear region of a nocturnal jet. The PDF of ϵ and C 2 T are approximately lognormal. In addition, the joint probability density...
In situ and satellite observations reveal that the tropical intraseasonal oscillation is occasionally associated with large variations in sea surface temperature (SST). The purpose of this paper is to find the physical origin of such strong SST perturbations (up to 3 K) over the Indian Ocean by...
Statistical scale-by-scale analysis, for the first time, has been applied to the aerosol optical thickness (AOT) retrieved from the Multi-Filter Rotating Shadowband Radiometer (MFRSR) network. The MFRSR data were collected in September 2000 from the dense local network operated by the U.S....
This paper investigates isentropic ozone exchange between the extratropical lower stratosphere and the subtropical upper troposphere in the Northern Hemisphere. The quantification method is based on the potential vorticity (PV) mapping of Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment (SAGE)-II ozone...
