Disruption of Saturn’s quasi-periodic equatorial oscillation by the great northern storm

Abstract:

The equatorial middle atmospheres of the Earth 1 , Jupiter 2 and Saturn 3,4 all exhibit a remarkably similar phenomenon-a vertical, cyclic pattern of alternating temperatures and zonal (east-west) wind regimes that propagate slowly downwards with a well-defined multi-year period. Earth's quasi-biennial oscillation (QBO) (observed in the lower stratospheric winds with an average period of 28 months) is one of the most regular, repeatable cycles exhibited by our climate system 1,5,6 , and yet r...
