Yoshihiro Tomikawa, Kaoru Sato, Shingo Watanabe, Yoshio Kawatani, Kazuyuki Miyazaki and Masaaki Takahashi Growth of planetary waves and the formation of an elevated stratopause after a major stratospheric sudden warming in a T213L256 GCM Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres (1984–2012) 117

Key Points

  • Planetary waves cause eastward wind recovery in the 1st SSW recovery stage
  • Gravity waves control the stratopause height by their filtering in the 2nd stage
  • Polar-night jet in the 2nd stage strengthens via adjustment toward thermal wind
