Abstract: For the $ 5$-dimensional Lorenz system

$\displaystyle dU/dT$ $\displaystyle =$ $\displaystyle -VW+b\, VZ,$  
$\displaystyle dV/dT$ $\displaystyle =$ $\displaystyle UW-b\, UZ,$  
$\displaystyle dW/dT$ $\displaystyle =$ $\displaystyle -UV,$  
$\displaystyle dX/dT$ $\displaystyle =$ $\displaystyle -Z,$  
$\displaystyle dZ/dT$ $\displaystyle =$ $\displaystyle b\,UV+X$  

(with $ b\in \mathbb{R}$ a parameter), describing coupled Rosby and gravity waves, we prove that it has at most three functionally independent global analytic first integrals and exactly three functionally independent global analytic first integrals when $ b=0$. In this last case the system is completely integrable with an additional functionally independent first integral which is not globally analytic.
