Short summary
Long's equation models the steady state of two-dimensional stratified flow over terrain. It has been used extensively to investigate the generation and properties of gravity waves and their impact on the structure constants of the atmosphere. In this paper we derive a time-dependent version of this equation which might be useful in the analysis of experimental data about gravity waves.
