Abstract
The resonant interaction of a triad of inertial waves is investigated theoretically. An additional condition for resonance is found to be necessary compared to short internal wave interactions -- namely, that the polarization must be specified. One of the quantities conserved is .u calculated for each wave separately and summed over the triad. Here,  is the vorticity field and u is the velocity field of the inertial wave. Resonance diagrams are given and two explicit examples of amplitude variations are calculated.
