Abstract:

The transfer of kinetic energy by individual wave numbers is computed at various latitudes using data obtained from a harmonic analysis of the hemispheric 500 millibar pressure height. Linear correlations are sought between the computed values of kinetic energy transfer and computed 24-hour changes of kinetic energy of the perturbations for the same and for adjacent wave numbers.
