In Vadas and Fritts (2001), we presented the 3D analytic, Boussinesq solutions to smoothly varying body forces and heatings in the atmosphere. In Eq. (3.12), there is a term missing in the expression for the pressure perturbation created during a forcing/heating (0 ≤ tσ). This term is only important for vertical body forces. The corrected Eq. (3.12) is
e3.12
In addition, for clarity, the expressions for and are
eq1
Finally, the factor 1/(2π)3 should multiply the right-hand side of the second line in Eq. (3.25).
