Transition from geostrophic turbulence to inertia-gravity waves in the atmospheric energy spectrum
Midlatitude fluctuations of the atmospheric winds on scales of thousands of kilometers, the most energetic of such fluctuations, are strongly constrained by the Earth's rotation and the atmosphere's stratification. As a result of these constraints, the flow is quasi-2D and energy is trappe...
