Figure 3

Climatological mean (1979–2001) potential temperature (K), horizontal and vertical wind (m s−1) along 125°E in A1.0 at (a) 0800 AWST, (b) 1400 AWST, (c) 2000 AWST, and (d) 0200 AWST. The colors indicate potential temperature and the black contours indicate the zonal winds, respectively. The dotted and solid black lines represent zonal flow into and out of the page, respectively. The vertical component is multiplied by a factor of 100 to make it visible.
