Long extratropical planetary wave propagation in the presence of slowly varying mean flow and bottom topography. Part I: the local problem

One of the most successful theories to date to explain why observed planetary waves propagate westwards faster than linear flat-bottom theory predicts has been to include the effect of background baroclinic mean flow, which modifies the potential vorticity waveguide in which the waves propagate....
