flow response is governed by ĥ and the mountain Rossby number, Ro = U / fL , where f is the Coriolis parameter and L is the mountain half-width (e.g., Gill 1982 ; Pierrehumbert and Wyman 1985 ; Thorsteinsson 1988 ). For large Ro (>10), rotational effects are weak and the response is primarily governed by vertically propagating gravity waves ( Gill 1982 ). Inertia–gravity waves dominate when Ro ∼ 1, which are characterized by quasi-horizontal energy propagation and relatively small
