The Saturation of Gravity Waves in the Middle Atmosphere.Part II: Development of Doppler-Spread Theory COLIN O. HINESArecibo Observatory, Arecibo, Puerto Rico(Manuscript received 28 May 1990, in final form 21 December 1990) The irregular winds of the middle atmosphere are commonly attributed to an upwardly propagating systemof atmospheric gravity waves. Their one-dimensional (in vertical wavenumber m) power spectrum has beenreported to exhibit a nearly universal behavior in its

, planetary wave propagation, and position of tropospheric troughs and ridges. Rind et al. (1992) related lower-stratospheric volcanic warming to a reduction in the tropospheric Hadley circulation. Rind and Balachandran (1995) found that quasi-biennial oscillation (QBO) and UV variations impacted the troposphere in the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) Global Climate Middle Atmosphere Model (GCMAM) by changing tropospheric planetary wave generation and propagation.
