In an influential paper , P.H. Stone has included non-geostrophic effects in an asymptotic study of Eady's model of baroclinic flow. A careful analysis of his paper leads to the revision of one of his conclusions: the case of a large longitudinal wave number does not exhibit non-zero growth rates. Therefore, the symmetric instability hag the largest growth rates for the Richardson number in the whole interval 0 < Ri < 0.95.
