Abstract:

As an experiment in stratified climatology, height difference and geostrophic vorticity were tested as predictors for the 300-mb geostrophic winds over eastern Europe. Eight years of winter season data 1950-1957 and data for March 1958 were used. Forecasts using stratified data were compared with those of unstratified climatology. Certain stratifications showed significant improvement over climatology. Author
