by the TP can generate Rossby waves in the westerlies, which can propagate downstream and influence the circulation anomaly elsewhere. It is also located over the central and eastern parts of the Eurasian continent, facing the Indian Ocean to the south and the Pacific Ocean to its east. Therefore the Tibetan Plateau can exert profound thermal and dynamical influences on the circulation, energy, and water cycles of the climate system. Before the 1950s, most of the studies concerning the influence

several locations along the coast of California, Neiman et al. (2002) found that most of the occurrences of orographic blocking are associated with passages of cold fronts during which low-level stratification is generally strong. In a study of mountain waves over the Coastal Range of former Yugoslavia, Kim and Mahrt (1992a) inferred from the profiles of gravity wave stress that the displacement of the streamline at the surface can be approximated in terms of suitable large-scale flow parameters

) , and another one of the improvements from R-1 is that the radiation computations are done on the full Gaussian grid to avoid subsequent interpolation. Similar to R-1, R-2 has a triangular spectral truncation of 62 waves, corresponding to a horizontal resolution of about 210 km at the equator, and 28 vertical layers. R-2 also uses the reanalysis data assimilation system that is described in Kalnay et al. (1996) . This system is a three-dimensional variational data assimilation (3DVAR) analysis
