Midlatitude Synoptic Scale Systems: Their Kinetic Energy Budgets and Role in the General Circulation


The kinetic energy budgets of several examples of synoptic scale systems are reviewed. Included are systems containing a major cyclone development, the immediate cyclone vicinity, and the anticyclone preceding the cyclone development. These are then considered in terms of their role in the general circulation of the middle latitudes. Results show that the… (More)
