On the homogeneous model of wind-driven ocean circulation. (English) Zbl 0958.76092
The paper contains a formal derivation of the quasigeostrophic equations on $$\beta$$-plane, and the derivation of the corresponding boundary layers, as is well known since J. Pedlosky [Geophysical fluid dynamics. 2nd ed. (Study ed.). New York etc.: Springer-Verlag. XIV (1987; Zbl 0713.76005)].
