The atmospheric circulation of hot Jupiters are characterized by strong winds driven by large-scale waves generated from their large contrast in received irradiation from dayside to nightside. The propagation of these planetary-scale waves, along with the generation of large-scale instabilities, can cause the atmospheric flow of hot Jupiters to be ...
