Current numerical barotropic and baroclinic forecasting models have shown an inability to correctly represent the behavior of the plane tary-scale waves. A mathematical model, based on the thermodynamic energy equation, has been proposed by Wiin-Nielsen as a means of predicting the behavior of the planetary-scale waves. The model is programmed for the Control Data Corpora tion 1604 digital computer to utilize the opera tional output of machine-processed data and analyses produced by the U. S. Navy Fleet Numerical Weather Facil- 39fnwf0, monterey, California. The present form of the program yields a 1-hr planetary-scale forecast at 1000 mb, 850 mb, 700 mb, 500 mb and 300 mb in ten minutes.
