Abstract The roles of planetary waves (PWs) and gravity waves (GWs) are examined during a realistic major stratospheric sudden warming (SSW), simulated in the National Center for Atmospheric Research Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model (WACCM). This major SSW event is characterized by a well-separated polar stratopause during a wind-reversal period. Formed by adiabatic warming induced by westward GW drag, the early-winter stratopause layer appears at its climatological level. With the… CONTINUE READING
