The inviscid Primitive Equations (PEs) are an important model for short-term weather forecast. It is well-known that the inviscid PEs are ill-posed for any local boundary conditions. In this talk we discuss the imposition and justification of nonlocal boundary conditions  for the inviscid PEs by a careful study of the boundary layers associated with the viscous PEs in a cube. The boundary layers are constructed differently according to different modes (classified as supercritical, subcritical and zero modes), and include parabolic boundary layers, elliptic boundary layers and corner layers. We establish the convergence in energy norms between the viscous solutions and approximate solutions (inviscid solution plus boundary layers) for each mode.
