T. Birner, D. W. J. Thompson and T. G. Shepherd Up-gradient eddy fluxes of potential vorticity near the subtropical jet Geophysical Research Letters 40

Article first published online: 19 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/2013GL057728

Key Points

  • pronounced region of up-gradient PV fluxes on poleward flank of subtropical jet
  • up-gradient PV flux contradicts macroturbulence approach to general circulation
  • plausible mechanism presented with implication for jet shifts
