The non-modal transient properties of the Eady baroclinic model with a simple heating parameterization are examined. The time-dependent non-modal behavior of the moist baroclinic model is investigated by calculating the energy amplification of optimal perturbations for relevant time-scales and by calculating the energy evolution of random initial conditions. Enhanced non-modal growth on time-scales of 1-2 days is present on all length-scales considered. Exponentially neutral length-scalesdoi:10.3402/tellusa.v51i2.12321 fatcat:2p54glscffdwfcxv3sxwiyhvcq
