Angular distribution of Rossby wave energy. (English) Zbl 1345.76021
Summary: It is shown that the extra invariant for systems of the Rossby waves – which was discovered in 1991 – provides the missing theoretical argument for the anisotropic accumulation of the Rossby wave energy in the large-scale zonal flow.
