English term or phrase: jet stream
Definition from National Weather Service Upton, NY:
Relatively strong winds that are concentrated in a narrow band in the atmosphere. Jet Streams are usually thousands of kilometers long, hundreds of kilometers wide but only a few kilometers thick. They are usually found between 6 and 10 miles above the surface.

Example sentence(s):
  • This page displays the current location of the Atlantic jet stream and also the forecast position and intensity over the next seven days. metcheck
  • One of the main drivers of world’s weather is moving due to climate change. As this ScienCentral News report explains, scientists are finding that the jet stream, that river of air that pushes storms across the country, is moving towards the north and south poles. ScienCentral Archive
  • The jet stream is useful for the prediction of temperature. The jet stream divides colder air to the north from warmer air to the south. The transition between temperatures on each side of the jet is very abrupt. theweatherprediction.com

"Curent aerian de mare altitudine, extrem de
rapid şi deosebit de periculos pentru navigaţia aeriană.

secţiune ovală, lăţime de până la 500 km şi grosime de
până la 7 km şi viteze de 100-400 km/h care cresc
dinspre exterior spre interior. Locul lor se schimbă zilnic

Example sentence(s):
  • "Trecerea de la troposferă la stratosferă se numeşte tropopauză, care are grosimea de cca 2 km, dar variază în funcţie de anotimp: vara este mai mare decât iarna. La baza tropopauzei se află curenţii jet, care sunt curenţi de vest, cu viteze mari de cca 300 km/h." - Meteorologie.ro  
  • "Inţelegerea mecanismelor fizice la scară mare care controlează variabilitatea climatică la scara regională, cu menţiune specială asupra României; în cadrul acestui obiectiv se studiază caracteristicile de variabilitate spaţio-temporală ale principalilor parametri climatici din România, legatura dintre aceste caracteristici şi variabilitatea proceselor la scară mare (circulaţia atmosferică, temperatura suprafeţei mării şi oceanelor, Oscilaţia Nord Atlantică, ***Curentul Jet*** din Atlanticul de est, configuraţia scandinavică etc)" - Administraţia Naţională de Meteorolog
