In this study, we examine the nonlinear effect in the evolution of the Rossby wave propagating in the jet stream using a nonlinear barotropic model. We focus primarily on the formation of isolated eddy from the Rossby wave. The Rossby wave is induced by localized vorticity forcing in a zonally-varying basic flow. For weak, steady forcing we obtain the Rossby wavetrain trapped in the jet stream, as in the linear model. For strong, steady forcing it is occasionally seen that an isolated eddy withdoi:10.2151/jmsj1965.76.3_385 fatcat:iujq5kslpbevjcnhtqau5r3efe
