Properties

Properties of the parameter tendency_​of_​eastward_​wind_​due_​to_​eliassen_​palm_​flux_​divergence
Name tendency_of_eastward_wind_due_to_eliassen_palm_flux_divergence
Description The specification of a physical process by the phrase due_to_process means that the quantity named is a single term in a sum of terms which together compose the general quantity named by omitting the phrase. "Eastward" indicates a vector component which is positive when directed eastward (negative westward). "Eliassen Palm flux" is a widely used vector in the meridional plane, and the divergence of this flux appears as a forcing in the Transformed Eulerian mean formulation of the zonal mean zonal wind equation. Thus, "eastward_wind" here will generally be the zonally averaged eastward wind.
