The purpose of this research was to examine quantitatively the possible effect of the slope of the core of a cyclonic system on the pressure tendency at the center and the further relationship, to that same tendency, of various other synoptic values available to the forecaster. This work was conducted at the U. S. Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, during the period November 1948 to May 1949.

Evaluation of the Fleet Numerical Weather Central operational primitive-equation model in forecasting extratropical cyclogenesis. Klopfenstein, Timothy David (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-03);This paper describes an attempt to find systematic errors in the 12, 24 and 36-hour sea-level pressure forecasts of extratropical cyclogenesis produced by the operational five-layer primitive-equation model of the Fleet ...
