Wave interactions and baroclinic chaos: A paradigm for long timescale variability in planetary atmospheres

Abstract:

Baroclinic instability is the principal mode of non-axisymmetric flow in the large-scale atmospheric circulation at mid-latitudes, and is responsible for oganising the structure and behaviour of major weather systems. This instability can also be fruitfully studied in the laboratory under controlled conditions. In this paper, we review recent work carried out by the authors and collaborators on various routes to chaotic behaviour in rotating, stratified flows. Results include the discovery of...
