Abstract:

The report contains two papers. In the first of these, diurnal and semidiurnal Hough components of surface pressure are evaluated by classical tidal theory for previously presented profiles of water vapour and ozone heating and the values obtained are compared with the observed results of Haurwitz and Cowley 1973. The second paper presents profiles of terdiurnal ozone and water vapour heating from which the corresponding surface pressure oscillations are evaluated by classical tidal theory and compared with earlier evaluations and observationally derived results. In both papers the calculations underpredict the observed values and indicate a need for additional tidal heating to be identified. Author
