MoreExcerpt from Stability of Geostrophic Vortices on a Rotating SphereThe original motivation for this study comes from the climatological observation of three semipermanent sub tropical highs ih each of the Northern and Southern hemispheres and its explanation in the work of H. J. Stewart, which was extended by G. K. Morikawa, E. Swenson and A. S. Peters.A geostrophic approximation has been formulated by A. S. Peters, for the one layer, hydrostatic atmosphere, over a rotating sphere. In this geostrophic model, the coriolis parameter is treated as a constant- the height of the layer and its tangential velocity components are expressed in terms of a stream function.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
