Abstract : The equations of motion for a fluid in a Coriolis force field are presented. An explanation of the connection between the observed wind and pressure fields is described. The analysis shows that the deviation of the wind from its geostrophic value results in the formation of waves which are propagated in the atmosphere with rather great velocities, as a result of which, within a short time, the pressure field adjusts and comes into balance with the velocity field. An investigation is made of changes with time in the adjusted hydrodynamic field. (Author)
