Abstract : In order to understand variations in global atmospheric circulation and to improve capabilities for long range forecasting it seems logical to study variations in the main atmospheric heat source (the tropical belt) and the two main heat sinks (the arctic and antarctic). The present report gives a plan for detailed studies of the northern heat sink as proposed by a group of Soviet scientists. (Author)
