    This chapter provides a statistical description of the atmospheric general circulation, including its mean state and large-scale variability. Evidence for the poleward energy and momentum transports by the atmosphere is laid out, and the mechanisms behind these transports are explored.   The General circulation of the tropical atmosphere and interactions with extratropical latitudes by Reginald E. Newell, John W. Kidson, Dayton G. Vincent, George J. Boer, Ma , The MIT Press edition, Hardcover in English/5(4).

    General Circulation Model. General Circulation Models (GCM) is the representation of physical processes in the atmosphere, ocean, and land surface, and currently available for simulating the response of global climate system to increasing greenhouse gas concentrations (Carter et al., ). Kinetic energy of the atmosphere – general circulation The horizontal difference in temperature between the tropical heat- excessive areas and the polar heat-deficient areas are directly or indirectly responsible for 98% of the atmospheric kinetic energy.

Bringing together sixteen of the field's leading experts to address those aspects of the global circulation of the atmosphere most relevant to climate, the book brings the reader up to date on the key frontiers in general circulation theory-including the nonlinear and turbulent global-scale dynamics that determine fundamental aspects of the Earth's climate.5/5(1).

Report On Modes Of Air Motion And The Equations Of The General Circulation Of The Earth's Atmosphere Author: George Porter Paine. This is a graduate-level textbook on the global circulation of the Earth's atmosphere―the large-scale system of winds by which energy is transported around the planet, from the tropical latitudes to the poles.

Written by David Randall, one of the world’s foremost experts on the subject, it is the most comprehensive textbook on the by: 5.

The General Circulation of the Atmosphere and Oceans Theodore G. Shepherd University of Reading, UK Introduction The goal of this chapter is to show how many of the key observed features of the general circulation of the atmosphere and oceans may be explained from the fundamental physical constraints that are represented mathemat.

The circulation of wind in the atmosphere is driven by the rotation of the earth and the incoming energy from the sun. Wind circulates in each hemisphere in three distinct cells which help transport energy and heat from the equator to the poles.

The honours/master's level unit "General circulation of the atmosphere" will be running during semester 1, The unit will be taught by Martin Singh.

Class dates & times Classes will run between the 2nd of March and the 28th of April, with a week break between the 13th and 17th of April. Hadley circulation is very deep in tropical troposphere (15 km) Aloft, the air must return toward poles, carries with it equatorial angular momentum.

Northward motion is deflected to right (east) by Coriolis. No friction very fast. Jet stream Jet stream. General circulation of the atmosphere. The circulation of wind in the atmosphere is driven by the rotation of the earth and the incoming energy from the sun.

Wind circulates in each hemisphere in three distinct cells which help transport energy and heat from the equator to the poles. General circulation of the atmosphere. The high temperatures at the equator make the air there less dense.

It thus tends to rise before being transported poleward at high altitudes in the motion is compensated for at the surface by an equatorward displacement of the air. The circulation response of the atmosphere to climate change-like thermal forcing is explored with a relatively simple, stratosphere-resolving general circulation : Isaac Held.

General Circulation of the atmosphere is one of many concepts for UPSC Geography that candidates must familiarize themselves with.

This article will provide NCERT notes on topics such as these for the IAS aspirants. These notes will also be useful for other competitive exams like banking PO, SSC, state civil services exams and so on.

A minimal mean-field theory of the general circulation of the atmosphere, then, must account quantitatively for the mutual dependence of eddy fluxes and mean fields such as mean meridional Author: Tapio Schneider. The first model for the general circulation of the atmosphere was proposed by Hadley in the 18th century and is illustrated in Figure Hadley envisioned the circulation as a global sea breeze (section ) driven by the temperature contrast between the hot equator and the cold poles.

General Circulation of the Tropical Atmosphere and Interactions With Extrat Ropical Latitudes, Volume 2; by Newell, Reginald E., With John W. Kidson, Dayton G.

From the single question, “What is the physical origin of the biennial oscillation (the biennial change in wind direction from westerly to easterly) in the tropical stratosphere?” grew this study, the most extensive ever undertaken of the tropical atmosphere on a general circulation scale.

It is based mainly on a worldwide sample of free air balloon data collected from the period As pointed out in Sectionthe fundamental process that drives the circulation of the atmosphere is the differential radiative heating that results in a net gain in heat at low latitudes relative to high latitudes.

The general circulation of the atmosphere and the oceans provides the meridional and vertical heat transfer required for balance.The author outlines the theoretical concepts, simple models and numerical methods for modeling the general circulation of the atmosphere.
