Abstract

Due to a coding error, the amplitude and phases of stationary planetary waves in the mesosphere were incorrectly calculated by Schoeberl and Geller (1976, 1977). We report the corrected amplitudes and phases here, and note that our findings of strong sensitivity of the wave amplitude to the mean zonal wind profile remain unchanged.
