What are the fundamental forces in
the Earth’s system?
• Surface forces:
– Pressure gradient force
– Viscous force
• Body force: Gravitational force
• Apparent forces: Centrifugal and Coriolis
• Electromagnetic force (important for charged
particles, e.g. in the ionosphere, not important
for the neutral atmosphere)
• Total Force is the sum of all of these forces.
Viscous force(1): Friction
• In a fluid there is friction which resists the flow.
• It is dissipative, and if the fluid is not otherwise
forced, it will slow the fluid and bring it to rest.
• Away from boundaries in the atmosphere this
frictional force is often small, and it is often
ignored.
• Close to the boundaries, however, we have to
consider friction.

there is some velocity profile.

Viscous force (5)
The drag on the moving plate is the same of as the force required
to keep the plate moving. It is proportional to the area (A),
proportional to the velocity u0 of the plate, and inversely
proportional to the distance h between the plates; hence,
u(h) = u0

Proportional usually means we assume linear relationship. This is a
model based on observation, and it is an approximation. The constant of
proportionality assumes some physical units. What are they?

stress (t). Like pressure the shearing stress is
proportional to area. 

Summary: Surface forces
• Pressure gradient force and viscous force are
examples of surface forces.
• They were proportional to the area of the
surface of our particle of atmosphere.
• They are independent of the mass of the
particle of atmosphere.
• They depend on characteristics of the particle
of atmosphere; characteristics of the flow.
Body forces
• Body forces act on the center of mass of the
parcel of fluid.
• Magnitude of the force is proportional to the
mass of the parcel.
• The body force of interest to dynamic
meteorology is gravity.

Newton’s Law of Gravitation: Any two elements of
mass in the universe attract each other with a force
proportional to their masses m1 and m2 and
inversely
proportional to the square of the distance r

between the centers of the mass.
The force acts along the line joining the particles and
has the magnitude proportional to G, the universal
gravitational constant.

Apparent forces
• Due to the fact that we live on a rotating
planet
• Centrifugal force
• Coriolis force
Back to Basics:
Newton’s Laws of Motion
• Law 1: Bodies in motion remain in motion with
the same velocity, and bodies at rest remain
at rest, unless acted upon by unbalanced
forces.
• Law 2: The rate of change of momentum of a
body with time is equal to the vector sum of all
forces acting upon the body and is the same
direction.
• Law 3: For every action (force) there is and
equal and opposite reaction.
Back to basics:
A couple of definitions
• Newton’s laws assume we have an “inertial”
coordinate system; that is, and absolute frame
of reference – fixed, absolutely, in space.
• Any motion relative to the coordinate system
fixed in space is known as inertial motion.
• Velocity is the change in position of a particle
(or parcel). It is a vector and can vary either
by a change in magnitude (speed) or
direction.
Non-inertial coordinate systems
Unit 6,frames 16-21:
http://www.atmos.washington.edu/2005Q1/101/CD/MAIN3.swf
• The Earth rotates, it is an accelerating frame of
reference, hence:
• Our coordinate system ‘north, south, east, west’
is a non-inertial, non-absolute coordinate
system.
• The ‘north’ direction in Ann Arbor is different
from the ‘north’ direction in San Francisco or
Sydney, Australia.
Two coordinate systems
Can describe the velocity
and forces (acceleration)
in either coordinate
system.

or

One coordinate system related to another by:
x'  Ax (t ) x  Bx (t ) y  C x (t ) z
y '  Ay (t ) x  By (t ) y  C y (t ) z
z '  Az (t ) x  Bz (t ) y  C z (t ) z
Example: Velocity (x’ direction)
x' Ax (t)x  Bx (t)y  Cx (t)z

So we have the velocity relative to the coordinate
system and the velocity of one coordinate system
relative to the other.

This velocity of one coordinate system relative to the other
leads to apparent forces. They are real, observable
forces to the observer in the moving coordinate system.
Two coordinate systems
z’ axis is the same as z,
and there is rotation of
the x’ and y’ axis

We also use the symbol  for .
 is the angular speed of rotation of the earth.
T is time needed to complete rotation.
On Earth it takes a sidereal day = 86164 s.

The apparent forces that are proportional to rotation and
the velocities in the inertial system (x,y,z) are called the
Coriolis forces.

The apparent forces that are proportional to the square of
the rotation and position are called centrifugal forces.
