## Abstract

At the core of this article is an improved, sharp dispersive estimate for the anisotropic linear semigroup e^{R1t} arising in both the study of the dispersive surface quasi-geostrophic (SQG) equation and the inviscid Boussinesq system. We combine the decay estimate with a blow-up criterion to show how dispersion leads to long-time existence of solutions to the dispersive SQG equation, improving the results obtained using hyperbolic methods. In the setting of the inviscid Boussinesq system it turns out that linearization around a specific stationary solution leads to the same linear semigroup, so that we can make use of analogous techniques to obtain stability of the stationary solution for an increased time span.
