The paper investigates the combined effect of viscous and Darcy dissipations in the case of a fully developed natural convection flow of an incompressible viscous fluid between two heated vertical walls in a rotating porous system. A perturbation method has been employed to obtain the solution of governing non-linear coupled equations. The zeroth order solution corresponds to the flow in the absence of viscous and Darcy dissipations. The effect of Darcy and Ekman numbers on the field variables and the mass flow rate has been discussed.
