Abstract

Periodic motions, which include, in particular, waves and cellular convection, are one of the commonest forms of mesoscale atmospheric flows. They are of great interest not only in themselves, but also because their loss of stability leads to the formation of turbulent eddies. Relatively small eddies, which cause buffeting of aircraft, are mainly due to the breakup of short waves, whose length does not exceed a few kilometers and whose dynamics is practically unaffected by the deflecting rotational force of the Earth.
