Abstract [en]

We propose a wave-kinetic description of atmospheric turbulence, where the turbulence spectrum is described as a gas of quasi-particles. We apply this description to the case of zonal structures in the atmosphere, which can be excited by internal gravity wave turbulence. A general expression for the instability growth rates is derived, and the particular example of a nearly mono-kinetic turbulent spectrum is discussed.
