  • A new analytical model was developed to predict the gravity wave drag(GWD)induced by an isolated 3-dimensional mountain,over which a stratified,non-rotating Non-Boussinesq sheared flow is impinged.The model is confined to small amplitude motion and assumes the ambient velocity varying slowly with height.The modified Taylor-Goldstein equation with variable coefficients was solved with a Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin(WKB)approximation,formally valid at high Richardson numbers. With this WKB solution,generic formulae,of second order accuracy,for the GWD and surface pressure perturbation(both for hydrostatic and non-hydrostatic flow)were presented,enabling a rigorous treatment on the effects by vertical variations in wind profiles.In an ideal test to the circular bell- shaped mountain,it was found,when the wind is linearly sheared,that the GWD decreases as the Richardson number decreases.However,the GWD for a forward sheared wind(wind increases with height)decreases always faster than that for the backward sheared wind(wind decreases with height).This difference is evident whether the model is hydrostatic or not.
