Zhou, T.H., M.A. Geller, and K. Hamilton, 2006: The roles of the Hadley circulation and downward control in tropical upwelling. J. Atmos. Sci., 63, 2740-2757, doi:10.1175/JAS3770.1.

Several idealized models of tropical upwelling are presented in order to clarify the roles of the nonlinear Hadley circulation and extratropical wave driving. In particular, it is shown that the Hadley circulation and wave-driven circulation interact to determine the nature of tropical upwelling. The authors explain several observed features such as maximum upwelling in the summer subtropics and the annual variation of the upwelling.
