: Equilibrium temperature distribution and Hadley circulation in an axisymmetric model

  title={: Equilibrium temperature distribution and Hadley circulation in an axisymmetric model},
  author={Nazario Tartaglione},
The impact of the equilibrium temperature distribution, θE, on the Hadley circulation simulated by an axisymmetric model is studied. The θE distributions that drive the model are modulated here by two parameters, n and k, the former controlling the horizontal broadness and the latter controlling the vertical stratification of θE. In the present study, variations in the θE distribution mimic changes in the energy input of the atmospheric system, leaving as almost invariant the Equator–poles θE… CONTINUE READING
