The winter-time transport of geostrophically computed angular momentum at 500 mb for the period 1 December 1955 to 28 February 1956 is obtained for Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. This transport is subjected to a cospectral analysis to compute the contribution of harmonic waves with periods 1-30 days to the total angular momentum transport. Computations are made for two other stations, one east, and one south of Sault Ste. Marie for comparison of transport as related to general circulation processes. The author is deeply indebted to Professor F. L. Martin, Department of Meteorology, U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, for his encouragement and invaluable aid in the preparation of this manuscript.
