Numerical simulation of cold surges.
A global, six-level primitive equation model was numerically integrated to examine the interaction of a planetary wave with a growing mid-latitude baroclinic wave. The purpose of this study was to determine the ...
A comparison of six vertical discretization schemes.
Six vertical discretization schemes are compared for a linear, baroclinic, vorticity-divergence equation model. Variables are defined for two staggered and one unstaggered grids. -A finite difference and a Galerkin ...
Mean flow and turbulence in complex terrain
Atmospheric models used to describe horizontal diffusion in the surface layer depend upon a detailed characterization of the mean flow and standard deviation of wind direction fluctuations (ae) . Meteorological data ...
Sensitivity of planetary waves to initial conditions and forcing
The sensitivity of planetary waves to various initial conditions and thermal forcing is examined using a linear global primitive equation spectral model. Initial conditions are obtained by switching on a analytic heat ...
Numerical simulation of the forcing of monsoon surges by mid-latitude baroclinic waves
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1983-09)
A global, six-level, primitive equation model was numerically integrated to examine the interaction of a mid-latitude baroclinic wave with several different mountain-valley configurations. The purpose was to determine the ...
A study of east-coast cyclogenesis employing quasi-lagrangian diagnostics.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1982-06)
The absolute vorticity and angular momentum budgets for the Presidents' Day Cyclone, 18-19. February 1979 are evaluated employing the quasi-Lagrangian diagnostic technique in pressure coordinates. The First GARP Global ...
A two-dimensional finite element advection model with variable resolution.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1981-06)
Many meteorological forecast applications require the use of grids that have a high resolution in a particular area of interest, while allowing coarser resolution elsewhere. Conventional finite difference models often ...
Synoptic scale features associated with vertical distribution of IR aerosol extinction.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1981-03)
Observed vertical profiles of optical extinction due to aerosol scattering were examined relative to prevailing synoptic scale features. This examination was on the suitability of an existing wind speed and humidity ...
Statistical adjustment of the HATRACK typhoon track forecasting model
A statistical technique proposed by Elsberry and Frill (1980) for adjusting dynamical tropical cyclone motion forecasts is extended to the Hurricane and Typhoon Tracking (HATRACK) scheme of Renard, et al (1968). The ...
Statistical adjustment of dynamical tropical cyclone model track predictions.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1979-03)
A technique of statistically adjusting dynamical forecasts of tropical cyclone motion was tested. All tests were performed with operationally-analyzed data from the U.S. Navy Fleet Numerical Weather Central (FNWC). Three ...
