Saltzman, Barry (2011)

As a basis for discussing energy conversions in the atmosphere WHITE and SALTZMAN (1956) presented equations for the rate of change of horizontal kinetic energy and total potential and internal energy of an atmosphere in hydrostatic equilibrium.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1961.tb00086.x
