    Abstract

    In Part I of this investigation, we described the stochastic, near-field behavior of disturbances excited by randomly evolving tropical heating. In the present paper, we examine how these disturbances are modified as they propagate through the far field in the presence of spatially-varying background states. Although the behavior can no longer be broken down into individual Hough modes, it can still be understood in terms of projection and barotropic components of the response.-from Authors
