The Rossby wave velocities for several lowest modes were calculated using the Laplace tidal equation. The value of the equivalent dynamical depth of the atmosphere was taken, due to Diky (1965), equal to 10 km. The calculated values of the velocities are in close agreement with those found by Eliasen & Machenhauer (1965), who treated the empirical data.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1968.tb00373.x
