Abstract The kinetic energy balance and kinetic energy source are studied for high latitudes north of 55°N with twice daily upper air observations during a seven-year period from 1973 to 1979. Energy variables are presented for 5° latitudinal zones from 55 to 75°N and for the polar cap north of 75°N. Spatial distributions of important energy variables are also presented. The upper-level maximum of the cross-isobaric generation in high latitudes is observed in the lower stratosphere above the… CONTINUE READING
