Caption

Jet streams. Computer artwork showing the paths of the jet streams around the globe. Jet streams are fast flowing high-altitude narrow air currents that circle the Earth. The major ones on Earth are the polar jet stream (7-12 km altitude, blue) and the subtropical jet stream (10-16 km altitude, red), which occur in both hemispheres. The polar-night jet stream (white) forms only during the winter months of the year at around 60 degrees latitude in both hemispheres, but at a greater height than the polar jet (about 24km).
