Abstract : In a recent paper White and McNally (1987, hereafter WM) developed and discussed a particular solution to low frequency, wind-forced motion in a stratified ocean of constant Coriolis parameter f sub 0. In this note we present the correct solution to the problem WM set out to solve. Qualitatively, none of the results presented by WM need be changed. Quantitatively, significant differences occur, especially as omega approaches the inertial frequency f sub 0. Keywords: Mathematical ocean models, Air water interactions, Reprints.
