On the Stability of Three-Dimensional Disturbances in Stratified Flow with Lateral and Vertical Shear
Iordanka N. Panayotova and John P. McHugh Pp 23-26

Howard's semi-circle theorem is generalized for three-dimensional disturbances in a non-Boussinesq stratified fluid with a mean flow varying horizontally and vertically. In case of Boussinesq approximation Howard's and Rayleigh's theorem are extended for three-dimensional disturbances in a fluid with a mean flow varying only with respect to the latitude.
