3.The present Eq. (7) is essentially the same as Eq. (4) of Sec. 72 of reference 2. Since the earth’s rotation is here neglected, terms in have also been omitted in Eq. (7). The quantity Q that is used in reference 2 is proportional to Derivatives of are here neglected; this is justifiable in the ocean, but not in the atmosphere.

8.This statistical independence of the motions in the two thermoclines has been empirically established by B. Haurwitz, H. Stommel, and W. H. Munk, On the Thermal Unrest in the Ocean (Rockefeller Institute Press and Oxford University Press, New York, 1959), Rossby Memorial Volume, p. 74. Unfortunately, their interpretation of the results is marred by the use of an incorrect formula for N.
