.. A project at "MIT", working to show some of the basics, ... 
 
Starting with those associated in great part with main "Coriolis", looked at together with main Atmosphere, "heating differential".

 From the experiment routed to more here just above, one of the main experiments there - as documented and outlined.

" .. In the midlatitudes, atmospheric circulation is greatly influence by the earth's rotation. In this regime, the Rossby number is higher (relative to the Rossby number at the equator). The primary method of heat transport in this regime are eddies. These eddies make up what are known as mid-latitude weather systems. Below is a water vapor satellite image of the north pole on May 23, 2014  (found at http://climate.cod.edu/flanis/satellite/polar/index.php?type=polar-wv-48 ). The swirling eddies can very easily be made out."
 
This above is the exact quote from that outline. In fact the resource routed to within it is updating. And so you'll in fact find the data having been compiled more recent where considering this scope and parameter.

Interesting to watch that Pacific hurricane in your last link.

Certainly a useful perspective (scope) and parameter, more generally. 
 
As with its brother. http://climate.cod.edu/flanis/satellite/polar/index.php?type=polar-ir-48
