ABRUPT CHANGE OF FLOW PATTERN IN BAROCLINIC ATMOSPHERE FORCED BY JOINT EFFECTS OF DIABATIC HEATING AND OROGRAPHY


doi: 10.1007/BF02677060

  • Based on the catastrophic theory, the possible causes of abrupt change in the atmospheric circulation over the Northern Hemisphere during June and October have been explored by Li and Luo (1983) and Miao and Ding (1933). However these studies are confined to the baroiropic atmosphere without consideration of orography. The purpose of this paper is to further study the physical mechanism of the abrupt change of flow pattern within the baroclinic atmosphere in the presence of orography. Results show that the abrupt change of flow pattern can be stimulated by the gradual variation of a diabaticaily heating parameter, which is similar to the observed fact about the rapid shift of position of the subtropical high center in the upper troposphere along the zonal direction during seasonal transition from the summer half year to the winter one.

ABRUPT CHANGE OF FLOW PATTERN IN BAROCLINIC ATMOSPHERE FORCED BY JOINT EFFECTS OF DIABATIC HEATING AND OROGRAPHY

Abstract: Based on the catastrophic theory, the possible causes of abrupt change in the atmospheric circulation over the Northern Hemisphere during June and October have been explored by Li and Luo (1983) and Miao and Ding (1933). However these studies are confined to the baroiropic atmosphere without consideration of orography. The purpose of this paper is to further study the physical mechanism of the abrupt change of flow pattern within the baroclinic atmosphere in the presence of orography. Results show that the abrupt change of flow pattern can be stimulated by the gradual variation of a diabaticaily heating parameter, which is similar to the observed fact about the rapid shift of position of the subtropical high center in the upper troposphere along the zonal direction during seasonal transition from the summer half year to the winter one.
