Commentaries Concerning Research on the General Circulation

Article English OPEN
Starr, V. P. (2011)

Several phases of research significant for the general circulation are reviewed briefly. The effect of rotation on convective regimes is discussed. An example is given showing that mean meridional circulations are not essential for the release of potential energy.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1954.tb01122.x
