Large-scale Balance of Kinetic Energy in the Atmosphere

  title={Large-scale Balance of Kinetic Energy in the Atmosphere},
  author={Ernest C Kung},
The vertical distribution and seasonal variation of the kinetic energy balance of the atmosphere are studied. From 11 months’ daily wind and geopotential data during 1962 and 1963 over North America, the generation due to the work done by the horizontal pressure force, the local change, the horizontal outflow, and the vertical transport are evaluated for 20… CONTINUE READING
