I came across something that the number of atmospheric cells / jet-streams is tied to planetary rotation and average molecular weight of the atmosphere. Does anyone have the equations for this, or previously discovered at what speed our atmosphere would be come more or less complicated?

but the number of bands might be taken as proportion to a planet atmosphere's thermal rossby number
