Abstract

The relationship between streamline pattern and momentum transport has been examined. It is shown, for divergent flow, that it is possible for a streamline pattern with troughs and ridges oriented northeast-southwest to have zonally averaged momentum transports associated with it which are directed equatorward in the Northern Hemisphere.
