Quantifying the Eddy Feedback and the Persistence of the Zonal Index in an Idealized Atmospheric Model


An idealized atmospheric model is employed to quantify the strength of the eddy feedback and the persistence of the zonal index. The strength of the surface frictional damping on the zonal index is varied, and an external zonal momentum forcing is included to compensate for the momentum change associated with the friction change such that the climatological… (More)
