Abstract:

THIS MONOGRAPH CONTAINS THE RESULTS OF AN INVESTIGATION OF TROPOSPHERIC AND STRATOSPHERIC JET STREAMS OVER THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE. The structural characteristics and other characteristics of jet streams over Eurasia are discussed in detail. Separate sections are devoted to the origin, evolution and dissipation of jet streams, their connection with atmospheric fronts, pressure formations, etc. The monograph contains charts, graphs and tables, including individual and mean-monthly vertical cross sections of the atmosphere between the equator and the North Pole up to 28-30 km in different longitudinal zones of Eurasia and different seasons of the year data on the temperature regime and charts of the average wind speeds isotachs of the upper troposphere and the stratosphere pressure topography charts of the main isobaric surfaces for the winter and summ of the northern hemisphere, etc. A separate chapter is devoted to the problems of the formation of the stratospheric temperature and wind fields and an attempt is made to represent the vertical winter and summer temperature distribution and the atmospheric circulation up to 90-100 km.
