  • In this paper, we study the classical problem of the wind in the steady atmospheric Ekman layer with constant eddy viscosity. Different from the well-known homogeneous system in [14,20], we retain the turbulent fluxes and establish a new nonhomogeneous system of first order differential equations involving a term with the horizontal dependent. We present the existence and uniqueness of periodic solutions and show the Hyers-Ulam stability results for the nonhomogeneous systems under the mild conditions via the matrix theory. Further, we consider the nonhomogeneous systems with varying eddy viscosity coefficient and study systems with piecewise constants, systems with small oscillations, systems with rapidly varying coefficients and systems with slowly varying coefficients and give more continued results.
