Abstract : The problem of a thermally stratified compressible fluid on a rotating sphere with gravitation is discussed. An exact solution to the nonlinear Euler equations pertaining to this problem, which was recently obtained by H. E. Moses, is physically explained. The work represents a contribution toward a theoretical understanding of the motions and forces in the atmosphere, the environment in which the Air Force operates. (Modified author abstract)
