Abstract

This paper presents a case study of a wave-mean flow interaction, or minor warming, near the southern hemisphere stratopause for 15- 30 July 1974. The analysis is based mainly on data from the selective chopper radiometer carried by Nimbus 5. A deceleration of the zonal mean wind of 70 m s-1 from 20 to 25 July is observed in middle latitudes at 0.5 mb, with an acceleration further south. The polar vortex is, however, not disrupted. -from Authors
