field is then adjusted via geostrophic balance, and the temperature is finally adjusted through hydrostatic balance. An example of the perturbed fields is illustrated in Fig. 1 . An upper-layer (500–200 hPa) negative vorticity perturbation of strength α max = −0.23 ( Fig. 1a ) is introduced in order to weaken a strong midlatitude short wave. The resulting modification to the vorticity field is local to the perturbation ( Fig. 1b ), with the largest vorticity perturbation value situated off center
