Abstract : The solutions of the equations of motion governing largescale atmospheric disturbances are expanded in infinite series involving powers and products of three small parameters, characterizing the mass and velocity fields. The equations of the first approximation are basically nonlinear, but can be combined into a single differential equation in one dependent variable. An example is given of a steadily propagating disturbance satisfying these equations. (Author)
