Abstract

A polar jet stream flowing over northern Europe (14 july 1978) is investigated using both the radiosounding network and the Meteosat water vapor (WV) channel imagery. A maximum radiance band associated with the polar jet stream is shown to accurately delineate the tropopause break. A major difference in the subtropical jet stream radiative signature is noted, however. (JPB).
