Atmospheric Thermal Tides and Rotation

Post by Sirius_Alpha on 26th September 2010, 9:37 pm

I've been studying tidal effects recently with focous on rotation rates and Venus. I keep reading about atmospheric thermal tides as being a way to explain the retrograde rotation of Venus. But I'm not quite sure how this is supposed to work. Can someone shed some light on this?
