• Of concern are steady two-dimensional periodic geophysical water waves of small amplitude near the equator. The analysis presented here is based on the bifurcation theory due to Crandall-Rabinowitz. Dispersion relations for various choices of the vorticity distribution, including constant, affine, and some nonlinear vorticities are obtained.
