Dale R. Durran, University of Washington Since Jim is not able to post these himself, I have taken the liberty of listing the few errors I have found in the 4th Edition. We miss you Jim. Cecilia Bitz is updating this list in Autumn 2005. P. 12, eqn (1.6): needs an r on the r.h.s. ˆ P. 13, Fig. 1.6 caption: Should read ... For an idealized homogeneous spherical earth, g would be directed toward the center of the earth. In reality, g does not point exactly to the center except at the equator and the poles. P. 16, just below eqn (1.10b): should read v = Dy/Dt. P. 26, Exercise M1.1: (Not strictly an error, but misleading.) The Matlab scripts provided suggest that the neglect of curvature terms in the inertial oscillation produces a nonphysical eastward migration of the inertial circle. This is because of the arbitrary retention of spherical eﬀects in the equation for the rate of change of latitude λ with time. The subroutine xprim2.m, which produces the nonphysical eastward propagation, solves the system Du Dt Dv Dt Dλ Dt Dφ Dt = 2Ω(sin φ)v = −2Ω(sin φ)u u a cos φ v = . a = (1) (2) (3) (4)

Correct westward propagation and, for small-amplitude oscillations, very good quantitative agreement with the full spherical solution computed by xprim1.m maybe obtained by replacing the variable φ in (3) with the ﬁxed initial latitude of the parcel φ0 . Using a ﬁxed value for φ in (3) is consistent with the treatment of north-south displacements in the standard mid-latitude β-plane approximation. P. 31, 2/3 down page: should read DAx DAy DAz DA ≡i +j +k . Dt Dt Dt Dt That is, the A on the l.h.s. should be bold. P. 32, just below ﬁrst unlabel eqn: should read Ω = (0, Ω cos φ, Ω sin φ) P. 87, Eq. (4.1)
