tropospheric jet streams generate vertically propagating gravity waves in the troposphere and lower stratosphere ( Smith 1979 ; Gill 1982 ; Baines 1995 ; Fritts and Alexander 2003 ; Nappo 2012 ; Sutherland 2010 ; Plougonven and Zhang 2014 ). Through their far-field interactions, gravity waves constitute an important coupling mechanism in Earth’s atmosphere. The associated redistribution of momentum and energy controls the global middle-atmospheric circulation ( Dunkerton 1978 ; Lindzen 1981 ). To

dissipation from thatof the source of eddy kinetic energy.The analysis of the energetics in wave number space clearly demonstrates the differences between t,he energeticsof the different parts of the atmosphere. In middle latitudes there are essent,ial differences between the energeticsof the model t,roposphere and t,hat of the model st>ratosphere. In the model troposphere, the eddy kinetic energy isproduced by the conversion of eddy potential energy in the range of wave numbers from 2 to 8. Part of t

profile of zonal mean decay time scale of theactual atmosphere. In general the decay time scale in middle latitudes of the model is much less than in polar regions.From winter to summer, this region of minimumpersistence extends poleward. Qualitatively, a similar feature is evident in the observed distributionsexcept that the persistence of the model is slightlyless than observed at nearly all troposphericlevels in middle and high latitudes. In tropical regions, from 20-N to 20-S, decaytime

-geostrophic divergence (7) isdominated by the local geostrophic vorticity tendency,which is proportional to its surface value, i.e., the Laplacian of the surface pressure tendencies. One of the reasons why the proposed method, although based on quasi-geostrophic theory, requiresvirtually no explicit information on the usual forcingterms in the middle and upper troposphere is that thesurface geostrophic vorticity tendency already containsthe integrated (through the entire atmosphere) effectsof all the standard
