Abstract

A method for inferring the distribution of diabatic heating rates in the lower troposphere from general circulation data is presented. Application of this method to seasonal data suggests the important influence of the underlying warm and cold oceanic currents in winter and of the distribution of absorbed solar radiation on the diabatic heating distribution in summer. During the equinox seasons both influences are seen, with the spring (fall) heating distribution appearing more like the winter (summer) results.
