Beltrami states for compressible barotropic flows are deduced by minimizing the total kinetic energy while keeping the total helicity constant. A Hamiltonian basis for these Beltrami states is sketched. An interesting physical application of the compressible barotropic Beltrami state arises with the Kuzmin-Oseledets formulation of compressible Euler equations. Further, Ertel's invariant is shown to become degenerate in the compressible barotropic Beltrami state. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
