The applicability of axisymmetric theory of angular momentum conserving circulations to the large-scale steady monsoon is studied in a general circulation model with idealized representations of continental geometry and simple physics. Results from an aquaplanet setup with localized subtropical forcing are compared with a continental case. It is found that the meridional circulation which develops is close to angular momentum conserving for cross-equatorial circulation cells, both in thedoi:10.1175/jas3916.1 fatcat:4jl675p2bjhsrn7fsqok5thyc4
