time scale of 7/10 day, is also applied. Model results for runs with higher spectral resolutions or damping time scales that varied by a factor of 2 were similar to those shown here. Our equilibrium temperature profile is shown in Fig. 1 . It is similar to that used by Held and Suarez (1994) , but some modifications are made. The point of maximum reference temperature is displaced slightly into the Northern Hemisphere, and an additional term, equal to 10 K multiplied by the sine of latitude, is

local weather to a global climate. The subtlety of this interaction is further highlighted by the fact that, because of the planetary rotation and Taylor–Proudman theorem, large-scale flows are quasi-two-dimensionalized and may be conducive to the development of the inverse energy cascade ( Read 2005 ). One of the parameters that characterize macroturbulence is the Rhines wavenumber, k R = ( β /2 U ) 1/2 , or the Rhines scale, L R ∼ k −1 R , where U is the rms fluid velocity, and β is the
