Summary

The heat budget of a deep stationary January Low in the North Atlantic is studied, together with those of a series of peripheral Lows moving around it. The atmospheric and surface budgets are calculated from synoptic data. The system accomplished heat accumulation in its northern part and a decrease in heat storage in the Southwest sector. This was made possible by the effect of the turbulent terms in transporting heat from the ocean.

III. Das Energiebudget einer atlantischen Zyklone

Zusammenfassung

Die Wärmebilanz eines tiefen stationären Januartiefs im Nordatlantik wird zusammen mit derjenigen einer Serie darum kreisender Randtiefs untersucht. Die Bilanzen der Atmosphäre und der Erdoberfläche werden auf Grund synoptischer Daten berechnet. Das ganze System führte zu einer Wärmeanreicherung im nördlichen Teil und zu einer Wärmeabnahme im Südwestsektor. Dieses Ergebnis wurde durch die Turbulenzglieder beim Wärmetransport vom Ozean her erzeugt.
