How does the zone-mean circulation in the atmosphere affect the zone-mean temperature of the earth and how do they create polar night jets as well how do the zone-mean circulations vary with altitude but mainly how are they formed anyway? All I know is that apparently they are partly responsible for the stratification of the atmosphere and affect the troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere and thermosphere. Thanks!
