Today's selection from the Gallery
Downstream development and equatorward propagation of a Rossby wave over the Pacific. An initial perturbation in the Asian jet in a dry baroclinic model of the atmosphere has grown and been refracted equatorward, crossing into the Southern Hemisphere. This simple model accurately simulates observed behaviour of transient waves over the Pacific. In reality, the waves then trigger convection and precipitation over the ITCZ.
