The dynamics of an intense rising convective jet in the atmosphere has been investigated numerically and analytically. Primary consideration has been given to the interaction of the jet with stably stratified "retarding layers." The possible influence of radiation effects - heat release associated with the absorption of the shortwave solar radiation by the carbon black contained in the jet - on the jet dynamics has been considered. The above black is generated by the fuel combustion in the "meteotron," and can also be introduced additionally into the jet to intensify it. It has been shown that the radiation effects can, in principle, contribute greatly to the jet rise. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.
