1. Introduction. In 1937 and 1938, C.-G. Rossby published results of investigations into the manner in which velocity and pressure adjust themselves in ocean currents. He showed that an initially unbalanced rectilinear current would execute transverse inertial oscillations in the process of creating the pressure field that is necessary to balance the Coriolis forces associated with its momentum....
