On the Stability of ThreeDimensional Disturbances in Stratified Flow
with Lateral and Vertical Shear
Iordanka N. Panayotova and John P. McHugh Pp 2326
Howard's semicircle theorem is generalized for threedimensional disturbances in a nonBoussinesq stratified
fluid with a mean flow varying horizontally and vertically. In case of Boussinesq approximation Howard's and Rayleigh's
theorem are extended for threedimensional disturbances in a fluid with a mean flow varying only with respect to the
latitude.
