Abstract

The beta-plane approximation was first introduced into meteorological literature by ROSSY et al. (1939), but only in recent years has a systematic attempt been made to justify it. The most notable discussion in this regard was by PHILLIPS (1963). In this note we emphasize some points that may not be clear from Phillips’ presentation and extend his analysis somewhat.
