Tidal theory with Newtonian cooling

  • Richard S. Lindzen
  • Donald J. McKenzie


Processes representable by Newtonian cooling models are found to be of importance for tides in various planetary atmospheres. The equations of tidal theory are, therefore, rederived to include a rather general Newtonian cooling, and some of the effects of this inclusion are investigated.
