Abstract

Gravity waves were discussed in the previous chapter. These waves are of great importance for the dynamics of the ocean and the atmosphere. No less important are waves related to the rotation of the Earth. The theory of such waves, as well as the development of the theory of gravity waves which takes the Earth’s rotation into account, is the main purpose of this chapter.
