"An interplay of Rossby waves and gravity waves in the general circulation of the middle atmosphere"

Time: 3:15 PM, Room 22/23 Bundestraße 53 (ground floor).

The meridional circulation of the middle atmosphere is maintained by angular momentum deposition associated with waves. The summer-to-winter circulation in the mesosphere is mainly driven by gravity-wave forcing (GWF). However, GWF is not uniformly distributed, reflecting source distribution and filtering by Rossby waves...Read the Abstract (PDF).
