shown for MCs that a DVRW and its IG wave emission have angular pseudomomenta of opposite sign, positive and negative, respectively ( Schecter and Montgomery 2004 , hereafter SM04 ; Schecter and Montgomery 2006 , hereafter SM06 ). Consequently, a DVRW must grow in response to producing radiation. By this mechanism, the core of an MC will gradually deform. Although an atmospheric vortex is in a continuously stratified fluid, the shallow-water model suffices to explain the essential physics of the
