a real-world setting. We do see, though, a clear need for further, more sophisticated idealized experiments to study feedback mechanisms between multiple jet streams and the life cycles of baroclinic waves. Another topic that deserves future attention in our opinion is the dynamical understanding of the observed PNA influence on streamers in the Atlantic and over northern Europe. A follow-up study applying the same method to tropospheric streamers and looking at other seasons is planned. It

and Schott 1999 ), defined by (where f = 2Ω) of around 1–3 × 10 −3 . Such a value would indicate a convective regime somewhat similar to that of deep convection in the terrestrial oceans ( Marshall and Schott 1999 ), and imply that rotation should exert a strong influence on the form of convection. b. Flow measurement The horizontal velocity fields were obtained from plan view images from a charge-coupled device (CCD) camera by a correlation imaging velocimetry (CIV) method ( Fincham and
