Abstract

In this paper we study the convergence of weak solutions of the Navier Stokes equations with a large Coriolis term as the Rossby and Ekman numbers go to zero, and in particular the so called Ekman boundary layers, and justify some classical expansions in geophysical fluid dynamics (see [14], chapter 4).
