Abstract : The development of waves imposed on the baroclinic zonal flow is investigated. The problem is solved with a numerical method for four and tenlevel atmospheric models. The results obtained are used for investigating the stability of motion, for determining the character of wave evolution with a different vertical structure of a disturbance at an initial moment, and for the evaluation of transformation of energy. The calculated results demonstrate the relationship between the stability of waves of different magnitudes on the vertical velocity profile of the basic flow and the stratification of the atmosphere.
