Abstract : An approximation method consisting of expansion of the hydrodynamic equation for the boundary layer in terms of small parameters is used to solve the problem of wind distribution with height in the case of curvilinear isobars (a family of second order curves). The reduced curvatures of the isobars are considered as small parameters. The equation of steady motion of an incompressible fluid in the boundary layer of the earth in the case of a constant mixing coefficient is given. Graphs of the plane divergence for the boundary layer of a thickness of 1.5 km for linear and nonlinear cases are presented. (Author)
