Abstract:

The results reported are part of a continuing study to improve numerical models for meso-scale and small-scale effects which influence global weather and its modification. The two major areas being studied are the effects of mountain ranges on energy and momentum transfer and the transient interaction of solar radiation with the Earths atmosphere. A new theoretical and numerical scheme for solving the radiative transfer equation in the Earths atmosphere has been developed. Some improvements in the treatment of Mie scattering are presented, and the overall status of the radiation code is reviewed.
