Remarks on the equatorial shallow water system. (English) Zbl 1187.35181

Summary: This article recalls the results given by A. Dutrifoy, A. Majda and S. Schochet in [Commun. Pure Appl. Math. 62, No. 3, 322–333 (2009; Zbl 1156.76013)] in which they prove an uniform estimate of the system as well as the convergence to a global solution of the long wave equations as the Froud number tends to zero. We prove the convergence with weaker hypothesis and show that the life span of the solutions tends to infinity as the Froud number tends to zero.
