This study is concerned with the instability of laminar Ekman flow which is characteristic of boundary-layer flows in rotating systems of many kinds. By numerical integration of the equations of motion we have obtained critical values of a Reynolds number for this flow, growth rates of the unstable perturbations and equilibrium finite-amplitude solutions. The results are in good agreement with experimental data, and the numerical solutions extend the results beyond what could be obtained readily in laboratory experiments.

It is believed that the severity of the storm hitting Canada on October 15, 1954 was due to the addition of an independent development to the dying hurricane Hazel. The problem of forecasting this event is discussed in the light of forecasts made at the time. The presence of a secondary development is verified.
