Abstract:

The poleward transport of sensible heat by atmospheric waves was computed on a daily basis during the period 12-16 January 1959. Computations were made at every five degrees of latitude from 30N to 80N at 850, 700, 500, 300, 200, 100, and 25 mb. Fourier analysis was employed to determine the spectral distributions of heat transport. Intense cyclogenesis occurred during the period and significant changes were produced in both the spectral distributions and the total transports. The behaviour of the heat transports in the troposphere and stratosphere suggests that a high degree of inter-relation existed between these layers. Author
