The time- and zonal-mean state of CNT as a function of different Ts − Td, obtained by varying α. a The mass transport by the atmospheric cells MA (solid) and by the Ekman flow ME (dashed) in Sv, b the heating induced by Ekman transport HE in W m−2, c the meridional energy transport by the atmosphere FA (solid) and by the Ekman flow FE (dashed) in PW, and d the precipitation in mm day−1
