Are extratropical cyclones the same as baroclinic waves?
I'm aware of the fact that extratropical cyclones form in 'baroclinic zones' and that they start of as waves. But are these what are referred to in papers as baroclinic waves e.g. Czaja et al. 2011; Bony et al. 2015.
Further to this, are these baroclinic waves the same as the Rossby baroclinic waves?
