Our ISSI meetings are devoted to the theoretical description and numerical investigation of the generation of zonal winds and
large-scale vortices in turbulent planetary atmospheres. These structures mainly determine the dynamics
and transport processes in these regions.
We will discuss and theoretically investigate:
The main goal of the project is to develop a nonlinear theory of wave structures in the atmospheres of the
Earth and other planets such as Venus and Jupiter, incorporating all features mentioned above. The present
proposal assumes the use of previous experience in this field gained by the members of the team. We
plan to present the current state of research related to nonlinear Rossby waves, with a particular focus on
the generation of large-scale eddies and zonal winds. Moreover, a special attention will be paid to the study
of nonlinear planetary waves in the ionosphere. A part of the project will be
dedicated to the interpretation of laboratory, numerical, and observational studies of Rossby waves in planetary
atmospheres. A particular attention will be paid to the analysis of the ionospheric responses to man-made
activities and extra-ordinary natural phenomena (earthquake, storms, hurricanes etc.).
