Increase of upper troposphere/lower stratosphere wave baroclinicity during the second half of the 20th century

Abstract:

A strengthening of the equatorward temperature gradient in the upper troposphere/lower stratosphere (UTLS), at subtropics and midlatitudes, is consistently reproduced in several modelling studies of the atmospheric response to the increase of greenhouse gas radiative forcing. Some of those studies suggest an increase of the baroclinicity in the UTLS region because of the enhanced meridional temperature gradient. This study presents observational evidence of an increase of the baroclinic wave ...
