form in an initially jet-free atmosphere through the stirring by baroclinic eddies only (e.g., Lee 1997 ). The eddy-driven jets are located in areas with strong surface baroclinicity in the extratropics. Subtropical (“shallow”) jets are located at the poleward edge of the Hadley cell and owe their existence in a first approximation to the transport of angular momentum from the tropics into the subtropics (e.g., Held and Hou 1980 ). It has been shown that subtropical eddies can significantly
