  • Description:
    "Every once in a while a question arises about whether or not some important terms have been omitted from the basic equations as we use them in meteorology. The questions usually center around metrical terms, terms that involve the shape of the earth, especially its departure from a perfect sphere. The concern is that, although omitted effects may be small, they may be large enough and systematic enough to accumulate in some way into important errors. My aim here is to derive the equations with rigor, so that all terms and effects can be closely inspected. I won't draw any conclusions, except to say that the rigorous derivation doesn't lead to any surprises"--Page 1.
