Eccentric Circumpolar Vortices in a Barotropic Atmosphere

Article English OPEN
Barrett, Earl W. (2011)

Recent investigations (LA SEUR, 1954) have shown that on many occasions the circulation of the middle troposphere possesses a marked eccentricity; i.e., the center of symmetry of the flow is found at a considerable distance from the geographic pole.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1958.tb02027.x
