rotation on lee waves is the lower bound on the bathymetric wavenumbers that produce propagating lee waves, based on the criterion f < Uk . As Uk → f , the vertical wavenumber approaches infinity, whereupon the vertical group velocity and momentum flux vanish. Hence, our conclusions about the drag for an upward propagating lee wave require modification for longer wavelength hills in strongly rotational regions. A second rotational process that complicates our conclusions is that of lee wave
