Abstract

Using a nonlinear model of stationary long waves which incorporates wave-wave and wave-mean flow interactions, we assess the variability of the stationary long waves in the stratosphere and troposphere. This note supplements the paper by Tung and Rosenthal, where the formulation was given in more detail, but the climatology and variability of stationary waves (No. 1 and No. 2) were not discussed.
