Ewlah (my main continent, but the smallest of the 3 continents on the planet) is "more vertical than horizontal". As the continents are positioned, I am assuming just one cell would form in the southern hemisphere, and that the northern hemisphere currents would be circumpolar. I'd love to feed the planet's data into a weather prediction programme, if only to find out how wrong my assumptions really are.

Three discrete landmasses of roughly similar size.
