Consider the 3D incompressible Boussinesq equations for rotating stably stratified fluids. It is shown that this set of equations possesses a unique time periodic or almost time periodic solutions for external forces satisfying these properties, which, however, do not necessarily need to be small. An explicit bound on the size of the external force, depending on the buoyancy frequency N, is given, which then allows for the unique existence of time periodic or almost periodic solutions. In particular, the size of the external forces can be taken large with respect to the buoyancy frequency. The approach depends crucially on the dispersive effect of the rotation and the stable stratification.
