Abstract

The drag on an axisymmetric body rising through a rotating fluid of small viscosity rotating about a vertical axis is calculated on the assumption that there is a Taylor column ahead of and behind the body, in which the geostrophic flow is determined by compatibility conditions on the Ekman boundary-layers on the body and the end surfaces. It is assumed that inertia effects may be neglected. Estimates are given of the conditions for which the theory should be valid.
