Description

Climatological fields for the Held-Suarez experiment with a) normal meridioinal temperautre gradient. All_HS.nc b) normal meridional temperature gradient and global uniform stratification. All_HS_S5.nc c) normal meridional temperature gradient under eddy-free setup. All_HS_trm1.nc d) normal meridional temperature gradient with seasonal cycle. annual mean: All_HS_season.nc. DJF: All_DJF_HS_season.nc h) normal meridional temperature gradient with the seasonal cycle under eddy-free setup. DJF: All_DJF_HS_season_trm1.nc e) reversed meridional temperature gradient. All_HotPole_ColdEQ.nc f) reversed meridional temperature gradient and global uniform stratification. All_HotPole_ColdEQ_S5.nc g) reversed meridional temperature gradient under eddy-free setup. All_HotPole_ColdEQ_trm1.nc h) reversed meridional temperature gradient with the seasonal cycle. annual mean: All_HotPole_ColdEQ_season.nc. DJF: All_DJF_HotPole_ColdEQ_season.nc h) reversed meridional temperature gradient with the seasonal cycle under eddy-free setup. DJF: All_DJF_HotPole_ColdEQ_season_trm1.nc Matlab code used to do all the calculations: a) Uprof.m: plotting the U, N2, S vertical profiles in Held Suarez models and the analytical form used in Eady model (Fig. S1) b) drive_hadley.m, drive_hadley_momentumonly.m, drive_hadley_temperatureonly.m: budget analysis to identify the driver of Hadley cells. (Fig. 2, Fig. 8) c) wave_structure_k.m: diagnose baroclinic eddy structure in Held Suarez model (Fig. 5) d) PV_y.m: check baroclinic unstable necessary condition (not shown) Generalized Eady model outputs: a) Normal case fields: eady9d_k7_normTy_output.dat. Normal case growth rate: eady9d_k7_normTy_growthrate.dat b) Reversed case fields: eady9d_k7_revTy_output.dat. Reversed case growth rate: eady9d_k7_revTy_growthrate.dat
