Abstract:

Methods of computation and error estimates are presented for numerical approximation of selected meteorological parameters used in the solution of cloud physics problems. These parameters are latent heat, saturation vapor pressure, dew point and wet bulb temperatures, specific heat of liquid water, temperature of the lifting condensation level, change in mass of freely falling water drops, and saturation-adiabatic temperatures. The FORTRAN programming language listings of the approximations are provided in the appendix.
