Generation of waves by jet-stream instabilities in winter polar stratosphere/mesosphere
Description: In this paper scientists investigate the manifestation of large-scale and middle-scale atmospheric irregularities observed on stratosphere/mesosphere heights. ECMWF Era Interim reanalysis data on stratosphere/mesosphere wind are used. Stratosphere jet-stream structure and origination are investigated. Source of gravity waves generation is found in the stratosphere structure. Structure and drivers of stratosphere circulation are considered.
