Abstract

The evolution of the flow in the Southern Hemisphere during the period 31 August-10 November 1979 is examined. The final stratospheric warming of 1979 and the associated reversal of the flow above 10 mb occurred during this period. It is found that this warming processs was newly monotonic but modulated by a series of events with enhanced eddy activity.
