Abstract: [1] The dispersion relation for internal gravity waves in the atmosphere or ocean is generalized to include all components of baroclinicity, vorticity, and rate of strain. This generalization is expressed in a coordinate-free formulation suitable to be used as the Hamiltonian in a general ray tracing program. Comparison with other work in special cases is included.Citation: Jones, R. M. (2005), A general dispersion relation for internal gravity waves in the atmosphere or ocean, including baroclinicity, vortic…
