interactions Although theory provides some guidance, the question remains what makes a jet a good waveguide in the real atmosphere. The issue can be addressed by experimentation with numerical models. It turns out that the ducting property of a jet waveguide in a climate model depends on the strength of the jet stream ( Branstator 2002 ). This result was later corroborated by idealized simulations with a barotropic model, indicating that a jet must be strong and, in particular, narrow in order to make it a
