Abstract

The problem of linearized oscillations of the gaseous envelope of a rotating sphere (with periods in excess of a day) is considered using the @-plane approximation. Two particular &planes are used-one centered a t the equator, the other at a middle latitude. Both forced and free oscillations are considered. With both 8-planes it is possible t o approximate… (More)
