found between wave activity and heat flux in Wang and Nakamura (2015 , 2016 ). To derive a theoretical framework for understanding planetary–synoptic-scale interactions and the apparent decoupling of the baroclinic and barotropic parts of the flow, we use multiscale asymptotic methods as introduced in Dolaptchiev and Klein (2009 , 2013 , hereafter DK09 and DK13 , respectively). This approach is taken as such methods provide a self-consistent (albeit idealized) framework for studying

strengthening and zonalization of the Atlantic jet. We find that the stationary planetary waves excited by the LIS topography play a central role in governing this response. The stationary waves excited by midlatitude topography and diabatic heating propagate predominantly equatorward and are absorbed in the subtropics ( Held 1983 ; Held et al. 2002 ). These equatorward-propagating planetary waves have southwest–northeast-tilted phase lines, which contributes to the observed poleward tilt of the modern
