Describing an atmospheric system in which the isobars are at an angle to the isopycnals or isotherms.
Understanding how baroclinic waves grew in simple models shed light on the mechanisms by which extra-tropical cyclones developed in the real troposphere.
Both waves propagate at the same speed and at the right wavelength for baroclinic instability to occur.
The dominant process is baroclinic instability which owes its existence to strong meridional temperature gradients.
