Two possible mechanisms for relating terrestrial atmospheric circulation to solar disturbancesDuring geomagnetic storms, which are initiated by solar disturbances, two cells of circulatory motion are established in the polar ionosphere. The torques that contribute to either cell might be as great as 10 to the 24 power dyne cm, and may persist for times of the order 100,000 sec. The angular momentum contributed to a cell may be as great as 10 to the 29th power g sq cm/sec. Angular momentum is discussed.
