In this talk, I present Mark Hammond and I's recent paper on the atmospheric circulation of tidally locked planets. In this work, we show how the main components of tidally locked atmospheric circulation - a super-rotating jet, stationary waves, and overturning circulation - can be isolated from one another using ...
