Abstract

The effect of horizontal transports of momentum and heat by transient eddies (TE) on the time-mean flow is studied by examining the relevant terms in a local budget of quasi-geostrophic potential vorticity. Two long-term observational data sets are used, and results for the Northern Hemisphere winter are presented. -from Authors
