This talk aims to shed light on the controls on the latitude of Earth’s jet streams and storm tracks. The relationship between the speed and the latitude of the eddy-driven jet is investigated in a hierarchy of general circulation models.

A stirred barotropic model is used to show that quasilinear wave-mean flow interaction theory predicts that faster jets should be shifted poleward. The implications for mid-latitude circulation changes in response to both forced climate change, and temporary stratospheric wind-speed anomalies, are discussed and investigated using primitive equation GCMs.
