This publication offers with the most rules of large-scale atmospheric dynamics at the foundation of adiabatic movement constants. it may be regarded as an creation to the idea of quasi two-dimensional fluid movement concentrating totally on approximately horizontal fluid parcel displacements in a stably stratified compressible fluid. an intensive mathematical remedy of the governing equations is coupled with a transparent interpretation of the phenomena studied and observed through examples of actual meteorological info research. issues contain an entire set of compressible fluid dynamic equations in addition to a survey on fluid dynamical conservation legislation utilized in meteorology and atmospheric physics; the derivation of two-dimensional atmospheric versions; large-scale flows; isentropic research of large-scale atmospheric techniques; and the rules of kinetic power sinks and their relation to the strength stability within the surroundings.

Behaves as if it were the total atmospheric entropy taken with the minus sign (Lorenz, 1967). The second approach to the estimation of APE, more general from the standpoint of thermodynamics, is based on the construction of a reference state which is stable not only mechanically but also thermodynamically. This reference state has the same value of total entropy as the actual atmospheric state, and the physical process leading to it could be treated as a sequence of idealized thermodynamical Carnot cycles.

KURGANSKY FIGURE 2 Axial M1 and equatorial M2, M3 components of the atmospheric angular momentum vector. When the atmosphere is represented by a thin film of incompressible fluid, a rigid-body-rotation about axis 1 is described by a stream function proportional to a rigid-body-rotation about axis 2 by (λ=0 corresponds to the Greenwich meridian) and about axis 3 by several meters correspond to relative variations in the magnitude of the of the order of 10−6.

Here, the Ertel’s invariant, following his own pioneering paper, is traditionally expressed in terms of potential temperature θ: (6) 5Here, generally speaking, c can be any rank tensor, not only a scalar, as it is in our case. KURGANSKY The invariant I is named Ertel’s potential vorticity. In this Chapter, when general compressible fluid dynamics theorems are formulated, we shall set ψ=s because the entropy s has a more general physical content as compared with the potential temperature. In Chapter 4, we shall return to the potential temperature when discussing meteorological implications.
