how they can be met in the complex orographic situation of northern Argentina and the Mendoza region. The height of the Andes is such that humidity cannot originate from the Pacific Ocean area: crossing the Andes results in a very strong drying of the air masses. Humid air masses are usually carried to the Mendoza area by the so-called low-level jet (LLJ). The LLJ consists of a low-level northerly circulation that is concentrated in a relatively narrow region located toward the east of the

1. Introduction Subtropical jet streams and jet streaks over the Australian and South Pacific region have been subjects of numerous studies. It appears that the primary motivation for investigating westerly wind maxima in this region stems from their unique location, particularly in summer, when the sun is overhead and hence the jets are not too far removed from tropical heat sources (e.g., ITCZ, SPCZ, and intraseasonal oscillations). A majority of the studies has focused on the maintenance or
