Conservation theorems for “energy” and mean circulation in an inviscid rotating fluid are stated in their most general forms (which do not presume the existence of inertial modes). The geostrophic motion that contains all the mean circulation of an initial velocity field is identified as the time average of the flow. A preliminary study of the in viscid motion inside a closed cone reveals many singular features and indicates that the inertial wave spectrum may be continuous.
