The problem of inertial waves in a rotating fluid, which is in a close analogy with the internal gravity waves in a stratified fluid, has been further explored. It is shown that transverse waves can exist in a rotating fluid provided their circular frequency is less than twice the angular velocity of the rotating frame. The wave energy is transported at right angles to the phase velocity. In a contained fluid, discrete modes may exist, and resonance is possible. Author
