    • Zonal jets as transport barriers in planetary atmospheres 

      Beron-Vera, F. J.; Brown, Michael G.; Olascoaga, M. J.; Rypina, Irina I.; Kocak, Huseyin; Udovydchenkov, Ilya A. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-10)
      The connection between transport barriers and potential vorticity (PV) barriers in PV-conserving flows is investigated with a focus on zonal jets in planetary atmospheres. A perturbed PV staircase model is used to illustrate ...
    • Zonal surface wind jets across the Red Sea due to mountain gap forcing along both sides of the Red Sea 

      Jiang, Houshuo; Farrar, J. Thomas; Beardsley, Robert C.; Chen, Ru; Chen, Changsheng (American Geophysical Union, 2009-10-10)
      Mesoscale atmospheric modeling over the Red Sea, validated by in-situ meteorological buoy data, identifies two types of coastal mountain gap wind jets that frequently blow across the longitudinal axis of the Red Sea: (1) ...
