Computation of the Large Scale Vertical Velocity
MetadataShow full item record
Vertical velocities are computed at four levels over a Northern Hemisphere in addition to lower boundary value which is applied at terrain pressure and includes effects of frictionally- and terrain-induced vertical velocities. The latter, as computed here, have somewhat smaller maximum magnitudes and less irregularity than the frictionally-induced vertical velocity.
