The importance of blocking stems from its persistence and from the abnormal weather patterns associated with it. The causes of blocking are, at present, not identified, but there is circumstantial evidence that planetary waves are connected with the phenomenon, viz: the longer mean wave rides cluster around areas where blocking is most frequent. This work attempts to find a firm connection between blocking and the planetary waves, and to examine some current blocking theories which have planetary waves as an essential element.
