Derivation of quasi-geostrophic potential vorticity equations
In this paper we derive the quasi-geostrophic potential vorticity equations, starting from primitive type equations, as the Rossby number goes to zero, and prove the convergence as long as the limit system has strong enough solutions. We in particular take account of the boundary layers and investigate the existence of global weak solutions of the limit system with physical boundary conditions.
