Durran (1993) discusses the constant angular momentum oscillation in detail.

7) 2 R where is assumed to be constant. 7) states that the acceleration following the motion in an inertial system equals the rate of change of relative velocity following the relative motion in the rotating frame plus the Coriolis acceleration due to relative motion in the rotating frame plus the centripetal acceleration caused by the rotation of the coordinates. 2). 8) is the statement of Newton’s second law for motion relative to a rotating coordinate frame. It states that the acceleration following the relative motion in the rotating frame equals the sum of the Coriolis force, the pressure gradient force, effective gravity, and friction.

22) p2 where ZT is the thickness of the atmospheric layer between the pressure surfaces p2 and p1 . 23) Thus the thickness of a layer bounded by isobaric surfaces is proportional to the mean temperature of the layer. Pressure decreases more rapidly with height in a cold layer than in a warm layer. 24) where p0 is the pressure at Z = 0. 18), it is clear that a single valued monotonic relationship exists between pressure and height in each vertical column of the atmosphere. Thus we may use pressure as the independent vertical coordinate and height (or geopotential) as a dependent variable.
