Abstract : The paper presents a linearized barotropic prognostic equation and its approximate solution with the effect of orography taken into consideration. It is found that when the characteristic frequency of a forced disturbance induced by orography is equal to that of a free disturbance, a resonance phenomenon occurs. In this case, the solution obtained may not be used for mid- or long-range prediction. However, this difficulty can be overcome if the frictional effect is introduced. (Author)
