consider in order to discuss the SI of a baroclinic MC. The first is the linearized PV equation: The second is the lowest-order flux conservative equation for the angular pseudomomentum density J . In isentropic coordinates, and in which σ is the isentropic mass density, ψ is the Montgomery streamfunction, g is gravitational acceleration, R is the gas constant of dry air, c p is the specific heat of dry air at constant pressure p , and p a is the constant ambient surface pressure (cf

makes a peculiarly unexpected connection with the generalized, Bayesian PV inversion operators proposed, for quite different reasons, by Hakim (2008) . This article is dedicated to my former student Rupert Ford, whose meteoric career was tragically cut short on 30 March 2001 ( McIntyre 2001 , 2008 ), and to my former colleague Sir James Lighthill who died on 17 July 1998, in typically magnificent style, on one of his “adventure swims” around the island of Sark. Both were extraordinary thinkers who
